Law of the West

Bitmap graphics/Music/Multiple choice Written 1985 by Alan Miller, Mini Doggett [graphics] and Ed Bogas [music].
Runs on:
Notes: The package contains one disk and a small instruction booklet and a folding "quick start" card. The entire game is played with a joystick.

Comments: You wander around a typical "western movie" town, meet people and have to deal with them. You have a selection of four or five things to say at each turn. Get it wrong and they try to shoot you. Get it right and they might give you some information.

Package blurb:

If you've ever wanted to strap on a six-shooter, pin a tin star to your chest and match the exploits of a Bat Masterson or Wyatt Earp, then Law of the West is your chance.

Hardcase Gunslingers

You're going to need true grit, and then some, to play it. Because as the Sheriff of Gold Gulch - as tough a Wild West town as there ever was you'll have all you can do to survive 'til sundown. Standing in your way will be all manner of hardcase gunslingers, desperadoes and dry gulchers looking to rob the town bank, run roughshod over innocent townspeople and plant you in Boot Hill. So, like Masterson in Dodge City and Earp in Tombstone, you'll be forced to face one challenge after another threatening both your authority and your life.
