Description from the packaging.

The power behind the power.
Build an energy empire!

"PowerHouse delivers... by the barrel. (It) looks to be another impending success." - PC Gamer.
"In the forefront of game design..." - Strategy Plus.

If you've ever harbored wildcatter, adventurer or tycoon fantasies, step into PowerHouse- a futuristic world of dwindling energy supplies and cutthroat conglomerates.

You and 3 competitors have carved up the rights to 9 vital energy sources. Explore the world either as we know it or with randomized energy deposits. Build cutting edge power plants, using technologies we have only begun to dream about. Expand this empire to dwarf your competitors and span the globe.

PowerHouse is a breakthrough in Business Simulations: It offers live action video with professional acting, superb SVGA graphics and a gripping sci-fi "could-it-happen-here?" scenario. No to mention terrific game play depth, balance and replayability. Or... Fun. Challenge. Reward. So what are you waiting for?
