You can't beat the feeling of power money brings, and there's plenty of money to be made in the A1200 version of 1869. It's the late 19th Century and the world is wracked with civil wars and international conflicts. In many ways, there's never been a more exciting time to launch a business venture.
You play the owner of a fledgling shipping company and you have to use your skills as a tactician and businessman to exploit the various trading situations around the world. If you succeed then your business expands, but if you fail, you could end up losing more than just your livelihood.
The A1200 version of this Format Gold winning game doesn't actually seem to be that much different from the original version - you get the same brief animation sequences and humorous interludes. You even listen to the same irritatingly nautical chip music. However, 1869 can be best appreciated in multi-player mode with you and up to three other pals battling it out for ultimate control of the high seas.
Colourful, nice graphics, good hand drawn images, and sailoring in the ages of 1800... If you like strategy games where you have to manage yourself, talk to people, you should try this.
