MicroProse just released an expansion disk for Transport Tycoon that lets you build your own world instead of using the terrain generated by the game itself. But more than just a terrain editor, the World Editor brings new features like the alternate graphics set and the multi-player support. The new graphics set sends you on the Red planet, Mars, with a Steam-Punk look. Vehicles now have bolts and rivets while buildings use gold and silver for a shiny look. As the original game only allowed a serial link to play head-to-head, the expansion disk now features a modem play option for two players. This expansion disk, as the game was, is excellent and will retain your interest for an unlimited amount of time.

21st Century Entertainment announced a new game named "Pinball Special Edition" to be released by the time you read this article. However, there is nothing really new about it. It is a compilation of pinball tables from Pinball Dreams and Pinball Fantasies released in 1993 and 1994. For owners of the two games mentionned above, there is no need to buy this compilation, but for the others who might not be familiar with these titles, it is a great opportunity to discover some of the best pinball games ever made for the PC.
