"Outlaws" is a video game for the Commodore 64 developed and released by Ultimate Play The Game in 1985. In a break from earlier arcade adventure titles such as "The Staff of Karnath" and "Entombed", "Outlaws" is a straightforward shooter game and does not feature the aristocrat adventurer, Sir Arthur Pendragon. "Outlaws" was released on the Commodore 64 at the same time as another wild west-themed title, "Gunfright", for the ZX Spectrum.

Introduction

Typically for an Ultimate release, players are given a tantalising and cryptic introduction :

:
Outlaws

:Many years ago, rode a band of men. They came from the East of the desert and with them they brought terror and destruction. Nobody was safe from the perils of a merciless death, no family was complete, no man was free.

:They were the OUTLAWS.

:Driven only by murderous ambition and selfish greed they scoured the land, leaving behind them a trail of death and pillage. Town after town they plundered, with no man left who could stop them and no man left alive who dare try. The townsfolk lived at their mercy and prayed that the evil band of men's dark shadow of doom would not pass over their valley. Frightened though they were, they still found hope, and they prayed that one day someone would come and deliver them from the OUTLAWS' evil tyranny.

:
The Lone Rider

:Many months of hell passed and then one night out of a clear moonlit sky, arose a fiery storm and through this storm rode a man, a stranger with vengeance in his eyes. He had no name and no past, he had been sent to avenge them, for he was the LONE RIDER.
