A complete port of the classic 1982 game Taipan!, balanced to mimic the original Apple ][ release. This game's look evokes the phosphorescent glow of an early-80's CRT, but its interface has been tailored for ease-of-use on a mobile device.
* Sail the Western Pacific of the 1860's!
* Trade exotic goods!
* Battle fierce pirates!
* Evade customs officials!
* Fend off muggers, cutthroats, and thieves!
* And, Li Yuen reminds you to always pay proper tribute to Tin Hau, the Sea Goddess!
Download the game for free, pay only if you want to extend play beyond 12 months game time. (We feel confident that you will!)
What's New in Version 1.5
Updated for 64-bit compatibility
Good game that could be great
Very faithful reproduction that would be great if not for a couple of things. First of all IIRC the original included guns when you looted enemy ships. Second this port appears to have a hard limit to how long it wants your career to last. After so many years it starts piling on thefts, attacks and gun losses while making gun purchases more rare. Why am I being attacked by 245 ships when I have zero cargo and very little cash with me? Like I said good port that could be GREAT. Over all nice work.
Just like I remember it!
Now updated for iOS 11. TY! I used to play this on my old Palm Pilot. It was a fun game. I tried the other free versions, but they were not the same. I love playing this. I only gave it 4 stars because I think it's slightly over priced. Other than that its a great retro game.
Love this game
I played this like crazy on my Apple IIe. I'm so glad the developers updated for 64bit compatibly.
