Walter Pooley was a British text adventure author in the 1980s and 1990s.
His early text adventures, produced with The Quill for the ZX Spectrum, were commercially published by H&D Services. He later re-released the titles himself, along with new works.
Many of his games were ported to C64 and sold by Atlas Adventure Software. The Walter Pooley catalogue went on to be sold by GI Games and then Zenobi Software in the 1990s.
