West

Packaging for Sinclair QL West Adventure
West is a real-time text only adventure, which was written with a game generator designed by Alan Black.

Originally published by Talent Computer Systems in 1984, this game proved very popular, with a desert maze which changed each time that you re-started the game.

The game is based in the Wild West, where you play the part of a sheriff with only a trusty six-shooter and a steed as friends. You are on the track of a notorious gang of bank robbers who have gone to ground near an abandoned mining town deep in Indian territory. They have hidden the stolen loot. Your task - to outwit and outgun the robbers, collect as much loot as possible and piece together clues on how to escape. Can you survive this harsh environment and escape from this gold-rush town?

You have to cope with Red Indians, bank robbers and rattlesnakes. Events happen in real-time outside your control - Indians charge, rattle-snakes slither past and robbers appear and shoot you.

Originally published for the Atari ST and Sinclair QL computers, thanks to the QL2K emulator, RWAP Adventures have now released a version for Windows. It was also advertised as being available for the Commodore C64, BBC and Electron computers.
