COMPUTER GAME GIVES PLAYERS THE CHANCE TO SAVE THE WORLD ON EARTH DAY
 SAN MATEO, Calif., April 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Players can actually save, rule or create a world in an amazingly detailed computer simulation, Global Effect, by Millennium.
 The simulation demands a delicate balance of industrial, environmental and military factors in managing a world. Global Effect is designed for the strategic thinker with a home or office computer.
 As more and more nations face hardship and uncertainty, Global Effect gives computer game players the chance to play out their thoughts and ideas in managing the planet. Spread before the player on a massive game area of 64,000 separate locations, the player is presented with the needs of mankind and must balance these needs against the effects of global warming, pollution, deforestation, overpopulation, dwindling resources and gaps in the ozone layer.
 Global Effect is easy to play, featuring a point and click interface, yet demands high levels of strategic intelligence to build and maintain civilizations without disrupting the environmental balance. With 14 global scenarios in beautiful VGA 256 color graphics, there are realistic options for players to choose from that every head of state around the world is faced with daily.
 Millennium is an independent entertainment software publisher based in Cambridge, England. Global Effect is distributed worldwide by Electronic Arts Distribution.
