A Wild West text-based adventure game set in a deserted American town after the California Gold Rush. You get line maps of streets and buildings, and the whole thing is written in Basic - there's no machine code in them thar hills, pardner!

Ieuan: Ghost Town has an acceptable response time to entries, but there's no variation - so once you've solved it. well, that's it. There's only minimal use of sound. 5/10

Gerralt: The game is set in a fairly small town, so it doesn't take you long to find out what's going on there. The blue and cyan colours are nice - even contrasting well on a monochrome TV. 6/10

Brian: A fairly standard adventure game, but with a reasonably large vocabulary. 5/10
