If you like any of our shareware releases, then please support us by registering for the game concerned. Registration costs £12 (US$20) per game, and entitles you to the latest full enhanced registered version of the game concerned, with LOAD and SAVE game facilities and other additional features. Registration also puts you on our mailing list for information on Wizard releases - and there are several of these a year! System requirements for WIZARD releases are IBM PC/close compatible, with 512k RAM and CGA/CGA compatible graphics card. We have many reports of our games being run successfully on a wierd and wonderful variety of machines, eg Apple Macs, Hercules graphics machines, etc using appropriate DOS/CGA emulation hardware/software.

You have just inherited a business, called "USELESS LIMITED" from a sadistic uncle of yours. USELESS ltd makes silly little devices called "Incomprehensible Gadgets" which the general public seem to think are essential aids to modern living (yes folks "no home should be without one"). "Oligopoly" is the state where a few companies between them dominate a market. In the market for "Incomprehensible Gadgets" there are six companies including you, and there is some limited foreign competition which will only get a foothold in the market if the six companies are fairly incompetent. CUTTHROAT ltd will concentrate on price competition, aiming for a low profit margin on a high volume of sales. TOPNOTCH ltd goes for good quality design and expects customers to pay premium prices for it. IMAGE ltd loves to promote itself, so concentrates on marketing, again expecting premium prices for such a fashionable name... STEADFAST ltd as rather boring and conservative and tries to survive by taking as few risks as possible (you could say it depends on the boring conservative core of the general public for its'' sales!) SHADOW ltd copies you (except when you do really stupid things!), as they don''t' have minds of their own (shame....). So the aim of the game is to destroy the competition and get yourself a complete monopoly of the market for "Incomprehensible Gadgets" You have control over all aspects of USELESS ltd''s activities - production of the gadgets, design and development of revised models, and selling and marketing of the finished gadgets. You have a workforce to control and factories and equipment to organise, buy and sell. To help you run this business, you have a good computer system (programmed by WIZARD, so it must be quite wonderful) giving you a variety of graphical and financial information. It is up to you to figure out how to make sense of it all! ┌─────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────┐ │ WIZARD GAMES 4 Hoselaw,Kelso,Scotland,TD5 8BP │ └─────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────┘
