I remember typing this game from some magazine (can't remember the name) and being nicely surprised.
Never I had heard about Boot Hill, but I had played the spectrum version, the best known at least (High Noon), which is a lot better (and faster) than this type-in version. Still I got a kick out of typing it, mainly because I was expecting a lot worse, it plays in fact quite well and looks alright, very tidy and elegant.
Yes, it's a very basic game, not only because it's written in that programming language that also because it's well... basic.
