Corporate Raider: The Pirate of Wall St.
Cutthroat Competition is the business philosophy of wall street traders. You are one of them and you have
to think and act like them. CORPORATE RAIDER: THE PIRATE OF WALL ST. is as every bit devious as the title
sounds. As a head of a company, your goal is a monopoly and complete dominance which is only possible
through buying out the competition using every financial means. Inspired by real stock market dynamics,
this game tests player's business acumen and skills to reach victory.
First, it starts with options for which company players would like to own. Whether in the automobile
industry or the retailing industry, each one follows the pattern of economic highs and lows based on
current events. However, the gameplay is pretty similar across the board. Then comes fundraising either
using bank loans or venture capitalists. From the perspective of the owner, the rules are different because
you’ll always have corporate vultures coming after your company as well. Once you show the slightest sign
of weakness you could lose your company, so you must be wise when trading stocks. Greenmail offers come once
in a while to help you stave off hostile takeovers.
But they can relentless. A hostile Corporation could try to get controlling interest in your company which
will bar you from buying stocks in that industry. Fortunately, you have a few tricks up sleeve against that
as you can use takeover blocking tactics.
CORPORATE RAIDER: THE PIRATE OF WALL ST. has the back and forth of real stock trading including some
questionable choices that might not be ethical. It will be a thrill for finance enthusiasts. It was released
in 1988 in the United States and it’s available on DOS.
