Synopsis

The galaxy is a rough place and the overstretched Galactic Law Enforcement need as much help as the can get. They of course draw the line at vigilantes, but authorised Bounty Hunters are tolerated.

Bounty hunting is one of the careers with the shortest life expectancy and only drifters, drunks and mad men take it up with the hope of getting lucky.

Bounties are usually very high and the price on any criminal can make life very comfortable for their captors. The downside is that there is no back up, no friends and no chance of making it past 30.

Currently there is a lack of hunters in your galaxy and prices for wanted criminals are massive. Taking up the challenge you decide to give it try. Selling everything you own there is just enough to get you an old and well used starship, a full tank of fuel and a nice hat.

Not long after you set out, an anonymous message comes in claiming a wanted felon by the name of Frooge has just landed on a nearby planet.

This is it, your first bounty...

Notes

The game is based on the first in a series of three unreleased BASIC games written in 1985. The other two may also be rewritten some day if time permits.


According to Paul Jenkinson,

the game was for my own (and a few friends') usage only. The game was in three separate instalments, completely separate from each other, and could be played on their own. They are not good enough to ever see the light of day, but I did send the first one to Artic Computing - but they never got back to me!
