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.

Haha very very nice.

It's a little rough to figure things out at first, but it helps A LOT that prices don't fluctuate except when you hear about it, which means if u find a coupla good worlds you can make money fast. My only realy gripe is: you kinda figure out the deal long before you go through all the steps in solving the mystery, which takes a lot of the RPG element out of the game. But I do like being able to shortcut games if I so choose. Great job! Beautiful animation in the cut scenes.

Cool game but...

The fighting takes forever and it takes too long to fly between planets. If you fix these it would be a 10.

Great but...........

When you have the best stuff the freighter only moves 1 time. You should make a game like this with engines but great game and addictive

GREAT GAME BUT...

for some reason some trade goods would be priced zero... Once I had the first ship (60 cargo space) filled with the 5000$ worth stuff I could buy the big ship!
