Play “Mistress of Xenophobia” and tinker with the fate of an entire planet!
This is a “World Simulation Game” that was written in the early 80’s using the BASIC programming language. "Xenophobia" is a fun and often absurd first foray into world management games. Remaining true to the original algorithm, "Xenophobia” uses text based feedback to communicate your progress through the game.
Ported to the iPhone by Crowtrees Studio Inc., this game remains true to the original as written by Alastair Gourlay, with modifications by Tim Hartnell.

*Bug Fix - Infinite Reign
Fixed a bug where the game would never end. Not sure if this was a bug or a feature ;)
*Bug Fix - Bankruptcy Revolt
Over spending on food did not endear you to the people and instead of getting a "The Treasury is bankrupt!", they revolted. Which goes to show if you spoil people they just want more!!!
*tweaks - display
A few layout tweaks to improve the display on iPad, etc.
