...but you can't make him drink. Or can you?

1.01 Update: A hint page that updates as you get the hints. Kind of rushed it but it does the job.

Use your mouse or finger to make the cowboy move to a place on the screen and type out what you want him to do in order to get your horse to consume some H20!

A good game and my fave type with the fun point and click really makes for some entertainment


I am raging over how ridiculously hard it is to find commands the game accepts. Good brain teaser. still haven't beat it cuz I'm stuck at 70/110

MinorAtrocityGames responds:

Yeah, it was more of a test to see if I could do it more than a full fledged game. I wanted to implement a dictionary synonym look up but I found it to be next to impossible with the engine. i probably will just put up the cheat sheet because it is pretty tough.

This is an okay game. Had to figure out all the commands by myself.
The medals work, and I earned them all.

MinorAtrocityGames responds:

It was more of a test to see what I could do. I wanted to expand it into another game, just don't have the time right now.

Currently at 70/110, still trying out all the possible commands.

It's not bad, just a little on the short side. Graphics kinda remind me of old school computer games like Oregon Trail, I take it the retro look is intentional? Is there more then one way to get the horse to drink?

MinorAtrocityGames responds:

Very intentional. It's more of the old Sierra games than anything.

No, there's only one way to get the horse to drink water.

Maybe your work has hidden depths, but so far I haven't been able to discover them. The game seems to be a faithful recreation of early graphical text games from the '80s - only with a very simple plot and minimum choice of actions and commands. Yes, I know that comical element is supposed to be an important part of gameplay, but to be sincere, it's not my type of humour. Concluding, it certainly isn't your best submission, but I would still recommend it to anyone who never played similar games back in the old days.

MinorAtrocityGames responds:

I added a hint sheet to make to make things a little easier to figure out and keep track of.
