When we see movies with stock traders like The Wolf of Wallstreet, most of us have no idea what they're talking about when they start talking business. If you ever wanted to know what's it like to be a stock trader, Wall Street Raider can show you. This lightweight game simulates a stock market, as well as all sorts of events, like mergers, tender offers, liquidations and so on. It gives you a starting sum of money, and it lets you buy and sell, compete against other players, and do whatever it takes to become successful. It doesn't have any graphics, so the gameplay is done through menus, charts and message windows, but it can get a bit addictive once you learn the ropes.

A free demo is available, so you can try out the game and see if you like it before you spend any money. It takes only a few seconds to install it, and there is no need to make any complex configurations. Furthermore, you don't have to worry about the hardware requirements. You can run this game even on obsolete machines.

You can play the game against with or against other people or against one or more AIs, but if you don't know much about the stock market and how it works, you will need to bring up the game's documentation and do some reading. It has a fairly compact user interface, full of buttons and constantly changing values, as well as a headlines feed and ticker, which provide you with the latest news from various companies so that you will know if you should buy, sell or carry out other actions.

Everything is simulated, including companies and databases, so you won't be trading with anything real. It has to be mentioned that Wall Street Raider does a good job at simulating everything down to the last detail. For example, if you want to buy stock, you will get various messages, depending on the situation. There are even a few cheats available, but not like in traditional games, where you just get some extra cash. These cheats have real-life equivalents, like inside information about upcoming mergers. You may need to make a buy-out offer, at an above-the-market price, and, in many cases, your lawyers may have advice for you, as well as a fee, and it's all up to you to weigh your options, as well as the consequences.

If you want a taste of what it's like buy and sell, without actual risks, Wall Street Raider will give it to you, while teaching actually teaching you how the stock market works.


The game simulates every aspect of playing on the stock market. You can play it against the computer or other people. Its documentation will not only teach you how to play the game but also how the stock market works.


You need to do some serious reading to figure out how to play the game.
