Corruption review

Computer Gaming World - Issue 56 (1989): "Imagine this: Your name is Derek Rogers, an ambitious yuppie on your way up the London business ladder. Your ability at stock market maneuvering catches the eye of David Rogers (apparently not related), who makes you a full partner in his firm, gives you your own office, a big money salary, and your own BMW. Now, just as soon as you begin to celebrate your achievement, things start going terribly wrong. You have become the chief suspect in an insider trading scandal, and no one is rushing to your defense! In the past, Magnetic Scrolls has produced The Pawn, Guild of Thieves, and Jinxter. With no mythical lands,  sorcerers, or elves here, Corruption is a "true-to-life" adventure."
