SO TELL US WHAT YOU'VE GOT!|
With sixty minutes of
hyperactive, high-resolution animation, we've created a MONOPOLY
CD-ROM game that could impress even Rich Uncle Pennybags! Remember your favorite
tokens? They're back, and they're feisty. The Battleship sails around the board
gracefully, even submerging at times with only a periscope to mark its position.
The Race Car skids around the board in a reckless fashion, occasionally even
driving off the edge! Houses and hotels fall from the sky as if dropped from a plane,
and the "Go To Jail" space is more of a hazard than ever, as it literally catapults
you across the board and into the slammer. Of course, Rich Uncle Pennybags is still
king of the world, peeling himself off the board to roll your dice as needed.
Of course, what would
the world's biggest parlor game be without opponents? You
can have up to six players, and not everyone has to be in the same room. That's
'cause we put MONOPOLY on the almighty Internet!
Want to play (or make) friends in Germany, England, France? You can, and in a language
everyone can understand. Whether the last space on your board is called Boardwalk, Mayfair,
Rue de la Paix, or Schlossalle, our CD-ROM plays your way.
Want to meet potential tycoons from foreign lands? Visit Westwood Studio's Internet
Chat Room, where the world has become united through greed! All it takes to achieve
true simpatico is an Internet account. MONOPOLY is the first game in
history that has
transcended language and culture - could our CD-ROM do any less?
PLAY MY WAY?
If you're not in the
mood to be a diplomat, you can try a computer opponent, or customize
your own. How about an electronic foe that initiates trades, rolls its own dice, and takes
time to think about its actions? And you can lay down your own law. Everyone has a favorite
house rule for playing MONOPOLY. For the first time on any computer version of the classic,
nearly every rule can be bent or broken with just a click of the mouse.
Remember the "Free Parking" kitty? It's available. Want to collect $400 instead of $200 when
you land on "GO"? Do it. Fell like enabling six-way trades, taking rights and privileges
away from jailed players, eliminating auctions, or selling off special favors? Go right ahead.
Of course, you may choose to play by the book (we can respect that).
We went all - out - superb playability, visuals that push the envelope,
wacky sounds, jazzy music...
and by the way, MONOPOLY CD-ROM will run beautifully on Windows 3.1 or Win'95!
What else could you possibly ask for? Oh, yeah. You're right. Cheating would be
a nice touch, would it not? Well, guess what? You can! With just
another click of the mouse. |
