Cancelled Spectrum port

The game appeared in adverts from 1986 by U.S. Gold, highlighting the company's efforts to bring American software to the Spectrum customers of the UK. Unlike Psi -5 Trading Company, another Accolade title mentioned in these adverts, a Law of the West conversion was however never released.
