A very good strategy and economic game created by the Microsoft team in the ancient times, when computers of class 286, 386 and 486 reigned. We play the role of a novice entrepreneur, who has the capital of $100000 and must distribute it so as to become a great railway magnate.

The game allows us to play four scenarios, located on two continents, where we expand the railway network, and then transport raw materials and population between cities, factories, mines and other industrial centres.

Of course, we are not alone, we are constantly being overtaken and destroyed by other opponents who dream of a railway monopoly. So we have to demonstrate a good dose of strategic and economic skills and always plan well to finally triumph in this rail race.

  • Economic, economic and commercial dependencies, many types of raw materials that we can transport across continents.
  • Technological development, new types of locomotives, wagons, and all available equipment.
  • Simulation of city growth.
  • Different types of railway stations, wagons and locomotives, all with different characteristics and purpose, different train configurations for the transport of raw materials, and different for the transport of people.
  • A few degrees of difficulty.

Railroad Tycoon Deluxe expands the standard gameplay capabilities with high-resolution graphics, new sound effects, two additional areas where we will be fighting for an advantage in rail transport (North and South Africa), new locomotives and robbers and sheriffs.
