Game Review

Ports of Call is a business/strategy game created by Rolf-Dieter Klein and Martin Ulrich in 1987 for the Amiga, then ported a few years later to MS-DOS.

This title is a real classic. For many people, it represented the first game played on an Amiga, since it was included in the Amiga500 Deluxe pack. Compared to the titles of the '90s, the graphics seem to be bit rough, but still very detailed and pleasant. The gameplay is brilliant and immersive, with several options, and actions available for the players that can compete in "hot seat" mode. All of this makes this game of the best trading sim available on the Amiga.

You start selecting your home port; then you will have to purchase your ship and begin trading goods from one port to another one, trying to make enough money to grow your fleet and your company. There are many similarities with The Patrician (another trading sim made in Germany).

The mini-games make the game a bit different from other business simulations and add some diversions. Overall, it's a classic that you have to try, especially if you like the genre.
