At a time when Activision was doing mainly phoned-in ports of their 2600 games, companies like Brøderbund put out some great original material like Gumball, and this is certainly one of those gems. As with the zany action of their Spare Change (where you ran an arcade), Gumball has you in charge of a gumball factory. You have to be fast, efficient, and accurate in sorting the colored gumballs or face the wrath of your boss. The animation is funny when he's hopping mad, and when he dumps out your work if a colored gumball goes to the wrong corresponding color container.

It's a decision-making laboratory, a microcosmic simulation of real-life mini-crises, calling for global strategic thinking and a clear grasp of megatrends in the absolute.
