Planet M.U.L.E.

M.U.L.E was a Commodore 64 game where players where transported to a uncolonised planet to compete on the virgin ground for profit. You place farms to make food, solar stations to make power and mine metal and crystal out of the ground to earn the big bucks.

Now it is back as Planet M.U.L.E. and it is free, online enabled, has much better graphics and I know what I am doing because of the improved interface. I don't know what the developers have planned for it, but at the moment it is a very faithful recreation of the original.

M.U.L.E. is not a balanced game, whoever lands the sweet deposits at the start of the game will most likely win; so I would like to see a reworked version to make the gamplay more strategic.
