Dynasty (computer game)

Dynasty (computer game)

"Dynasty" is a text-based computer game for the Apple II family of computers, written in BASIC and distributed by Apple Core.

The player assumes the role of a regional governor in feudal China who must manage his lands and population with the eventual goal of becoming emperor. Crops must be planted and harvested, grain must be stored and portioned out for sowing fields and feeding the citizenry, and disasters (large and small) must be endured. These disasters range from losing grain to rats or graft, to earthquakes that destroy land, to plagues that can decimate the population. Crop yields fluctuate as the result of rains and droughts, as do grain prices at the market, so balancing all these factors can make for an entertaining challenge in an otherwise very simple game.
