Notes: It has some real-time elements. The original list price was 19.95.

Comments: Quite neat adventure set in the wild west.

Package blurb:

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. Your task - to outwit and outgun the robbers, collect as much loot as possible and piece together clues on how to escape.

A demanding and exiting text adventure for the experienced games-player, using over 200 words and as many phrases. There are over 130 locations to search - not all of them easy to find. Events happen in real-time outside your control - Indians charge, rattle-snakes slither past and robbers appear and shoot you. How long can you survive?
