Description from the packaging.
The intergalactic trading game.
Pit your business and marketing skills against as many as three other competitors with Traders - the action packed galactic trading game from Merit Software. Use your joystick or computer keyboard to raise and lower your buying and selling prices for a variety of goods on the interplanetary market.
In addition, you can produce goods, such as perfume, by planting your fields with flowers. However, you'll have to purchase raw materials, such as water, which may raise the price of your finished products.
No matter what you manufacture, watch out for Fat Mike. He's your landlord, and he only accepts snails as payment. Use the rockets in your fields to blast off to other planets, gather snails, and pay Fat Mike. Or you can trade your snails for other products.
Gambling-Try your luck at the roulette wheel to raise fast cash.
Gem Trading-Trade gems for your collection of rare alien insects, or vice versa, when the price is right.
Combat - When all else fails, you can build and equip robots with weaponry. Use homing missiles, shells, auto defense works and mines to attack opponents, while protecting your robot base.
Traders will provide you with hundreds of hours of family fun!
