Airline Tycoon

Airline Tycoon is a downloadable Tycoon Computer Game, in which you must successfully manage an airline. The original was developed by Spellbound, and published by Infogrames, however, the succeeding versions were published by a variety of publishers. The original Airline Tycoon Computer Game was created for Microsoft Windows, however, the later Deluxe version also supported Linux and Mac OS X. In this game, like all Tycoon Computer Games, the objective is to become a tycoon, and in this case, an “Airline Tycoon.” This is achieved through the balance of income and expenditures.

A tycoon computer game where the player acts as a manager of a large airline, competing against three other tycoons. The player must keep aircraft in good condition and equip them at such a level as to keep the customers satisfied, buy new planes (from the expensive Airplane Agency or from Mr Schlauberger at the museum who fixes them up and then sells them at a much lower cost) and take out bank loans if required. The player must also manage their personnel, plan flights, buy fuel, attend meetings in the airport manager's office and, if there is the time, slip into Rick's café for a quick cup of coffee. There is lots to explore and many decisions to make. The graphics are bright and decidedly tongue in cheek: the tycoon Igor Tuppolevsky has a set of Russian dolls on his desk--and an open tin of caviar.

With a network, up to four people can play at once and the game status can be saved (as it can in single-player mode) for long battles of wit.
