Strip Poker
1984 Artworx Software Company
Programmed by Sheldon Leemon & Glen Carbone
Most text of the present article comes from the feature on American imports by Julian Rignall, as published in the fourth issue of the British C64 magazine ZZAP!64 (August 1985).



The infamous Strip Poker has now been extended and slightly rewritten. Featuring two new girls, Marlena and Candy, the game is both fun and, arguably, controversial.

You play poker against a computer female and the idea is to strip her naked by winning all her money. It goes without saying that if you're playing honestly, then the reverse should also happen! You both start with $100 and are dealt the usual 5-card poker hand. The computer girl plays a reasonable game and all the rules of poker apply. You can raise, drop or call and have a $25 maximum bet (the minimum bet is $5. When you play you have to win the $100 from the girl. If you do then she'll be forced to sell an item of her clothing for another $100. The game works likewise for you, and the deeper you get into debt, the harder it is to win.

The graphics are very good indeed, using digitised pictures to try to get the characters looking lifelike. It's great fun to play, and some of the comments printed on screen are very humourous. There's a facility for allowing new girls to be loaded if you get bored with the two provided. If you like Strip Poker and feel like a change, then I suppose this would be something to look forward to, otherwise it's just a novelty which provides an amusing hour or so.
