Puerto Rico is a clone of the German boardgame Puerto Rico, copied from Ben Harrison's Windows and Linux version of the boardgame.

The four player game, two humans and two AIs, is included.

User guide

The players are plantation owners in Puerto Rico in the days when ships had sails.

Growing up to five different kind of crops—corn, indigo, sugar, tobacco and coffee—they must try to run their business more efficiently than their close competitors: growing crops and storing them efficiently, developing San Juan with useful buildings, deploying their colonists to best effect, selling crops at the right time, and, most importantly, shipping their goods back to Europe for maximum benefit.

For single player, leave remote players at zero.

To start a multiplayer game, set remote players to be the number of opponents you're expecting, then hit A/start. To join an existing game, choose choice existing game. All players must have connection saved to the WFC settings (with Mario Kart DS or any other official wifi game).

Controls

Most functions are performed with Stylus, with limited support of the D-Pad.

Start - Pass

Compatibility

Tested and works on DeSmuME and NO$GBA.

Known issues

Game may crash occasionally while obtaining an IP address - so when you get a red screen before game starts, it is advised to try again.

At the present, the multiplayer server is windows-only (and only supports one game at a time).

There's a bug that'll let you get free colonists. It was not fixed for testing purposes.
