Anyone play this? I recently bought it for $9.99 and it was worth every penny.
You're the child of a Chinese merchant. One day, your father dissapears under mysterious circumstances, leaving you to inherit the family trading business. You sail from town to town along the coast of China dealing goods. Standard Lemonade Stand rules apply, buy low, sell high, have enough left over for upgrades. You can also bribe customs officials, deal in black market goods and beef up your ship with cannons, better sails, and a larger cargo. Additional maps can be bought, allowing the ship to travel to other areas.
Now, granted, I'm only in my second day of playing, but this game is quite a fun diversion (from Metroid Fusion). Pretty simplistic, but I've enjoyed seeing how much I can hoard in warehouses, then driving the price up. And once you sell to a merchant, it reflects the transaction in their stock (something that always pissed me off about RPG's)
Also, there is some substance called "Turkish Delight" that you can sell for a pricey sum. Not surprisingly, it's available on the black market.
