Have You Considered the Benefits of Life Insurance - crackerblocks - Competition Entry
This game is not very self explanatory.
You are an ugly life insurance salesman, and you must purchase gifts for your trophy wife. This is sneaky, because when you go bankrupt your wife will still have all her gifts.
The gifts are at the bottom of the screen. When you have enough money, you can click to buy them.
To earn money, click on a little person to sell him insurance. He will pay you a life time premium of $1 per second. Should he die, his family will collect $100. So try to insure people with a long life expectancy!
The only life hazard for these little people is pits! They will constantly be opening up. You may click and hold on a pit to close it, at a cost of $20.
- I wish I had time to explain the story in game. And to draw the salesman and his wife. They were going to say funny things.
- I spent too much time tweaking variables trying to find a fun economic game. I don't think I found it.
- It might not be possible to buy all the gifts. This might be a good thing because there's no winning screen. It always ends in bankruptcy.
