Law of the West

Nintendo Entertainment System

Game Description:

Law of the West is an adventure game for the Nintendo Entertainment System.

Translation Description:

This is an English translation patch for Law of the West, published for the Famicom in 1987 by Pony Canyon and developed by the prolific “ghostwriting” studio Tose. It is a port of the eponymous game published for the Commodore 64 in 1985 and the Apple ][ in 1986 by the American developer Accolade. The original game is a short, complex dialogue-driven adventure game in which the protagonist is a sheriff of an Old West town who has to deal with its assorted cast of residents and visitors–preferably without getting shot. While the port keeps the original’s complicated dialogue trees (64 possible outcomes for each of 11 NPCs), much of the scoring complexity (where you could get points for handling situations and enforcing the law peacefully and lose them for needless violence, among other things) has been lost. As poor recompense, a number of pointless and sometimes-irritating arcade elements have been added.

Please note that versions of FCEUX earlier than 2.2.3 do not support this patch. It has been confirmed to work with the most recent versions of both Nestopia and Mesen. Hardware support for the patch is unknown at this time.
