This is a fun, "light" strategy game similar in concept to The Oregon Trail that puts you in command of the Spanish galleon setting sail to find the New World. One of the best touches in the game is the use of random problems the ship encounters en voyage (such as scurvy, pirate attack, etc.) that require you to make choices, all of which have real consequences. The NPCs in the form of your crew members are colorful, distinctive, and always helpful. All in all, a well-designed "edutainment" title that succeeds in balancing the education and fun factors. Highly recommended!
