Synopsis

Plot

You have been a bank robber in Manchester for the past two years, bagging over three million pounds. But your last "job" went terribly wrong. Your normally peaceful operations turned into a blood-bath, leaving four people shot dead. You managed to escape and post your blag to a friend in Rio de Janiero, with the intention of following as soon as possible to start a new
life in the sun.

But the cops were hot on your trail as you left Manchester in your trusty Capri, affectionately named "Kevin". On one of those winding Pennine roads with the beautiful views (especially in winter) your car just "flipped out" into a ditch. Luckily you escaped unhurt, but your internal combustion chum went to the great knacker's yard in the sky.

So here you are, with no wheels John, without a trustworty friend in the Northern Hemisphere. However, you do have a rather poky flat in Wittersley, but that's thirty miles away!

Notes

The title supposedly stands for “Armed Robbery with Violence”.

The game was originally written on BBC Bs and Masters, in BBC BASIC. We used the game listing in Usbourne Books’ “Write Your Own Adventure Programs for Your Microcomputer” as the template for the game.
It was initially called "Swag" however Simon, Tim and I realised there was already a BBC game with that name, so we changed it.

There were some vague ideas of writing ARV2, but by then we were all at university and had more interesting things to do.
