If you thought the management simulation games were a fairly recent innovation, then think again, these games have been around for years. One of the best sims for the Amiga was Railroad Tycoon, as the name suggests you have the honour of running your very own railway network. The basic idea of the game is to build railways, but that would be too simple wouldn't it. Just when you have started building your network three other companies show up on the scene, and begin to lay down tracks. You now have to better your rivals you do this by making your service the best, the better the service the more passengers and cargo you get. To make your service better you can buy faster trains, build better stations and build more tracks. The good thing about the game is that you can set your own goals, for example you may want to be the company with the most track, money or passengers, it's up to you. In this game if you have enough money you can actually buy out your competitors, and thus make more money. Unlike some Sims such as simcity, your railway cannot go on forever, you can only run your railway for 100 years. This is a classic sim; I must for any game collection. If you haven't got an Amiga you can actually buy this game for your PC, it's available from Amazon for just £3.99, try it what have you got to lose.
