oh man, i'm in so much trouble. Does anyone remember the game Ports of Call on the Amiga? Well, lets just say I was 12 year old Shipping Magnate the lives of which my house had never seen! and now, some fantastic people have made a modern game of the same take...

...i'm getting nothing done next week. At all.

Ports of Call was a fantastic little game where you basically ran a shipping company from humble beginnings with a shitty little 1000 tonne freighter to a multivessel company worth billions.

A great kink was that you also had to maneuver your ships into ports of various difficulties. Some were outright mazes! BUt it was a great way to break up the numbers game.
