The forgotten Sims game

quote [ SimCopter represents a very early glimpse at true sandbox gaming, especially in a 3D space. Crash your helicopter into a car on the street? You’ll need to grab a second bird and head back to the scene to extinguish the fire. Leave your helicopter in the middle of the road? Get ready to solve the subsequent traffic jam. ]

It felt like every 2nd song in that radio was Wagner, but then again: to great effect.

I don't think of this game as "lost" any more than I think Hospital Tycoon and Pizza Tycoon are
"less popular" or "smaller sales" are better descriptions.
I also liked "Sim Earth" where I had whales leave the Earth hundreds and thousands of years ago. The ones that stayed behind nuked the crap out of themselves and later mankind evolved.

I loved this game so much. I loaned the cd to a friend, and never got it back. That was definitely the end of that friendship.

This game is available as abondonware.

Abandondware sites are great.
It would be nice if companies continued "legacy" storage of downloads of their own games but I also understand legalities and sometimes that the rights to a game simply don't exist anymore.
