Ice Cream Stall is a simulation game for the SC-3000 by Pyramid Software. It was only released in Australia as part of John Sands Electronics's Mind Games series of Recreational Software Cassettes.

The game was developed for use in schools to teach some aspects of business management.

Gameplay

This game simulates the running of a small business selling ice cream cones from a street stall. Players purchase ice cream, cones, street sign advertising, and decide on a price per cone. Sales are affected by the weather and street closures, and players have to deal with inflation and strikes at the ice cream plant. The objective is to be the player with the highest profits, but the game has no ending and can be played indefinitely or until bankruptcy.

Synopsis

For one to ten players simultaneously. Aged 5 to 90! You're starting an ice cream business. A great program that gives you fun while giving you good business sense! May you wind up wealthy!
