Based on The Hyperbolic Needle by Brian Cristi, which can be read for free here.

The Morphine Western Revenge is an Western top-down shooter with a focus on fast-paced, decisive, and tactical combat. You play as a young Native American woman in search of her sister, who went missing in the aftermath of your tribe's destruction at the hands of the military. Your only companions are the gun at your hip and a hypodermic needle full of morphine.

A mouse is required to play. It may not run properly on older computers. If you are running Windows, it is highly recommended that you download the desktop version instead of playing the game in your browser. The desktop version has fullscreen support, better audio, smoother performance, and greater stability.

I didn't want the drugs. And I didn't want the bullets. So I became dead. You get what you pay for. And more.

Thank you so much for playing and sharing! Always makes my day to see these sorts of videos. I thought I squashed the bug where you can't shoot bad dudes at the bottom of the screen; it's good to have it brought back to my attention.
