Taipan for Windows is a great fanmade remake of Taipan!, a classic historical trading game for Apple II based on James Clavell's best-selling novel of the same name. This version is extremely faithful to the original – it even includes the notorious "negative debt" bug from the original game, which you can toggle on and off from the Options menu! A nice Windows-based interface and the same addictive gameplay as the original makes this the version to own if you miss the old masterpiece. For more explanation of why Taipan! is one of the best games ever made, read my review of the original classic on this site. Two thumbs up, way up!
