Nebula II

Nebula II is a space travel and trading game from Pyramide, originally written in French, although it has since been translated to English.

In the game you travel from planet to planet, buying and selling products and ore, making profit and taking advantage of the price variations in the solar system.

Planets which are far from the centre are the most dangerous and expensive to access (cost of fuel, risk of being attacked by space pirates), but it are also where you can find the highest price variations, allowing you to make great bargains (whether selling or buying).

From a technical point of view, there are not many graphics: a representation of the planet, and a sequence with effects when travelling between planets. Beware attacks from pirates, where the fight takes place in a very basic view from above, showing the spaceships.

Once on a planet, you have a selection of options and places do go to (market hall, garageā€¦), all with a text based interface, similar to an adventure.
