If the game was for Apple II, I think the name is "Taipan" but then again I could be wrong because it was ages since I last played it.

Anyway, there is indeed an Apple II game called, "Shanghai" if that is what you're looking for.

To get your answer, you might have to:
1) what for someone else to reply,
2) try the games out yourself, or
3) wait for me to try them out.

Try basalisk it is a macintosh emulator for apple. apple II and also Classic macintosh.
You will need system software which you can obtain from apple free of charge (thats if you are going to use classic macitosh)

And you will need a ROm to run it
