Hot Shot BusinessFall 2003 Video Games
Hot Shot business owners choose to open a pet spa, skateboard factory, or comic shop. Young entrepreneurs can take advice from Jack and Kate, the ever-present hosts and informal financial advisers who don't always agree. So decisions need to be made--and mistakes, too.
Once the business is set up, customers arrive, events happen, sales build, overhead is subtracted--all the things that happen in real-life businesses. If all is not well, players need to tweak their plan, make adjustments--before it's too late.
Although it’s free to play (just go to www.disney.go.com/hotshot/), this biz game is the same quality as those you buy in software stores. And it's a fantastic learning tool for youngsters interested in what it's like to start a business.
