High $take$

High $take$ is an adventure game with a mystery theme. It is based on the works of Dick Frances, a jockey-turned-author who has produced some of the bestselling crime thrillers. The game was developed by Angelsoft Inc. and released in 1996 on the DOS platform. High $take$ became one of the best-performing games by Angelsoft Inc.
The protagonist of the game is Steven Scott, a millionaire who is a regular on the racetrack and owns several racehorses. One day, Scott realises that his trusted employee Jody has been stealing money from him for a long time. Jody was an award-winning jockey who was the rider of Scott’s precious horse, Energise. However, the real blow to Scott comes when he realizes that Jody has stolen not only his money but has also hatched a plan to snatch Energise from him. Scott tries to foil the plan but narrowly escapes being crushed to death by Jody’s van. Scott then sets out on a pursuit of recovering his horse and unravels the mystery behind Jody’s betrayal. The game is full of nail-biting action sequences and surprising discoveries. The player controls Scott and must help him get to the bottom of the mystery and save him from death. The game requires fast reflexes and quick decision-making abilities to escape the dangers lurking in every corner. A split second could be the difference between life and death. High $take$ was a pioneer in the world of interactive fiction that remains popular to date. It is a single-player text-based game and can be controlled using the keyboard.

Angelsoft, Inc.
Angelsoft, Inc., based in White Plains, NY, was founded by John R. Sansevere and Mercer Mayer. The company created eight text adventures in 1985/86, most of them book or film adaptations. Their games were written in a script language called ASG. A particular hallmark of Angelsoft games was that the puzzles were semi-random; you could do everything right and still die due to changing conditions and have to load a previously saved game.
