Custer’s Revenge (also known as Westward Ho and The White Man Came) is an adult video game produced by Mystique for the Atari 2600. First released on September 23, 1982, the game gained significant notoriety for its portrayal of the rape of a Native American woman. Play Custer’s Revenge online here.
Custer’s Revenge game description
The titular player character is based on famous American Civil War commander General George Armstrong Custer, who is most well known for his major defeat at the Battle of Little Bighorn.
Following the North American video game crash of 1983, Mystique was unable to stay in business. As a result, many of Mystique’s intellectual properties, including Custer’s Revenge, were sold off to the adult video game company Playaround. Under the ownership of Playaround, Custer’s Revenge was re-branded as Westward Ho and given slight modifications to its original game-play. These alterations included simple aesthetic changes such as the darkening in color of the Native American woman’s skin tone. Playaround also made a version of Custer’s Revenge named General Retreat.
History was never quite like this. In a “creative interpretation” of the Battle of Little Big Horn, a rowdy and naked General Custer must make his way through a hail of continual arrows to a Native American Princess tied to a pole. If Custer can survive the obstacles in his way, he then gets an opportunity to have “sexual intercourse” for big points. Whether his needs have been sated, or brought down by enemy fire, Custer will return again and again to get what he wants. One of the few “adult oriented” titles for the Atari 2600.
Custer’s Revenge (Atari 2600) gameplay
In the game, the player controls the character of Custer, depicted as a man wearing nothing but a cavalry hat, boots and a bandana, sporting a visible erection. Custer has to overcome arrow attacks to reach the other side of the screen. His goal is to rape a naked Native American woman tied to a pole.
In General Retreat, it is the woman who has to overcome various obstacles to rape Custer. Instead of arrows, cannonballs are fired at the woman.
