Taipan 3000 has long been a popular game on PsychoGoldfish.com, but I was never really satisfied with the artwork, sound, and gameplay.

This is the long awaited revival of that classic, with all new graphics, story elements, all new combat engine and more!

-------------

Sorry about the debt due date glitch, it seems to be fixed now, but it may take a while before you see the changes since this movie has had so many views and needs to be manually verified by NG staff.

-------------
I notice a lot of people freaking out over the debt.

Dar Ghul is a loan shark. He only charges 3% per day unless you are late on a payment, then he jacks it way up and starts sending bounty hunters after you.

Tip #2: if you start with the 5 guns, you can sell them right off the bat for quick cash. As long as you use the smallest ship, you are too small of a target for pirates to care about.

and finally, I'll leak out ONE cheat code:
set your comapny name to 'pimp my ride' and you'll start with the best ship and a ton of guns that you can either sell or fight with.

excellent

A very interesting game. It kepy me hooked for about an hour trying to find the best trading routes and feeling like a real space merchant. The difficulty is relative to the experience of the player, after you get to know the best trade routes and which planet sells x item cheap and which other buys it for the best profit, the game is pretty easy.
The only thing I complain is that the battles are awfully slow and boring.
The debt glitch in difficult game is actually beneficial for the player, wait until your debt is a negative number and go ask the loan guy for any money you want.

Excellent game. but i believe i found a bug

The debt glitch is still present. Its only in hard mode apparently. You have a 30% interest charge per day instead of 3%. In easy mode the i beat it legit. army of 30 quad cannons on the best ship.surrounded the poor guy and destroyed him. hehe. after obliterating his army.
