From Mobygames.com:

"The most ambitious and far-reaching of Maxis' Sim lineage, SimEarth puts you in charge of an entire planet throughout its 10 billion year lifespan. Your ultimate task is to guide the planet's inhabitants into the stars, from its humble single-celled roots.

The main threats you face include pollution, disease, famine, war and global warming. The controls available to you include the chance to move mountains and continents, creating different levels of species, and unleash tidal waves and earthquakes so as to reshape your planet. All of these things take from your limited energy, which must be replenished."

The color version will complain about not running in 16 color mode and being out of memory on newer machines and probably crash, but you can fix this by opening the Info panel and setting its memory to something higher than the default 840K. I gave it a good 4MB and that seems to be plenty for it to happily run in Classic on my PowerBook G4.

The bad raters are halfwits who don't read the manual.

Dostoevskij:

Is this because we have made advances in UI design, or because new games are dumbed down?

Sim Earth is one of the games where you really see that gaming has come a long way. Too hard to keep track on what's going on, too many menus, too many settings ...
