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.


Slow and boring

I can't point out any faults in the game that haven't been noted by other posters already.

One thing that I didn't see anyone take issue with is the distance and time between worlds.

To start travel between some planets that are close together may take a longer time than planets that are far apart. Also noted that travel between worlds can have more than one predicted travel time. This is silly since I doubt that the movement of planets in this system is taken into account in the coding.

Just to add this is my second attempt at this game after playing the first version. Even with minor drawbacks the early version still seems superior to SE.

I played taipan 3000 and though it was a kinda good but not so good game but this...this...this game as you call it is terrible.All i did was go back and forth from one planet to another.It was like having two buckets and a sponge.one buckets full the other is empty.The full bucket represents me having fun.The other bucket represents taipan 3000 se's crappiness.The sponge represents my ship.I took the sponge and got some water.I brung it to the other bucket.I did it again and again and again and you know what it reminds me of.Playing this game.I would get some trionium and sell it then do it over and over and become even more bored in the process.I never even got attacked even though i owed like 17 million dollars.I had enough money to do anything and ya know what...it still sucked.Thank you psycho goldfish,thank you very much,you just ruined another day of my life with another crappy game.

okay... i don't think this was warranted. I liked the color options but there was no way that pirates would ignore tiny ships. By the way, if you like these games, then check out EV: Nova from Ambrosia Software.
