Created for a Flash animation/Action Script class, I made a Western-themed click n' play game in tribute to one of the greatest computer games ever, "Oregon Trail." Instead of heading West to seek fame and fortune, Westward Ho requires players to outrun the "Stinkin' Death" (Zombie Apocalypse) that's spreading throughout the East Coast. Based on your decisions and packing prowess, you'll make it to Oregon... dead or alive!

 

 I extend my heartfelt thanks to Josh Morgan, Amy Winfrey, and Greg Chen who personally helped me stay alive amidst all the action script.
