Don't know about a PC version, but nowadays a lot of old games for non-PCs can be run within emulation programs on a PC.

I used to cheat at Taipan by borrowing a small amount from the moneylender, then paying back more than this amount. He would start paying interest instead of charging it :D I do like the way that every time you bought a bigger fleet of pirate ships, they would send bigger enemies up against you so you couldn't just crush everyone with your naval might ;)
