First released on September 23, 1982. The game gained notoriety owing to its goal of raping a Native American woman.

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 video game crash of 1983, Mystique was unable to stay in business. As a result, many of Mystique's copyrighted works, 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 gameplay. 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. The game received largely negative reviews worldwide, and is often considered as one of the worst video games ever made.

In the game, the player controls the character of Custer, depicted as a man wearing nothing but a cavalry hat, gloves, 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 Native American woman tied to a pole.

In General Retreat, it is the woman who has to overcome various obstacles to have sex with Custer. Instead of arrows, cannonballs are fired at the woman.
