Tug Of War




Published in the book Sixty Programs For The BBC Micro by Pan Books Ltd, in association with Personal Computer News. It turned up later on the EUG public domain disc 56. The book contains the following description:

Tug-of-War is a two player game consisting of a canyon with a rope stretched across the top, held by a team of three figures on either side. A small UFO flies overhead and each player takes turns in dropping a parachute from it, attempting to land on a target which appears lower down the screen in a random position. Every time a parachutist hits the target, the opposing team is pulled further towards the edge of the canyon and if a man topples over the precipice, the team is weakened. The winner is the player who succeeds in pulling all the opposing team over the edge of the canyon.
