Have you ever played a game for a while and thought. 'Well, this is all very well, but there must be more to it than this?' And you've played the game a bit more and there wasn't? Yes, that's Gunfighter alright. You are the sheriff of a small western town which otherwise appears to be completely deserted (that's probably why they chose you). Every minute or two you hear that such-and-such a great gunfighter is in town, and you have to search him out and shoot him before he does the same to you. And that's it.

Dull isn't really the word for it. Earthshattaringly brainblendingly tedious is more like it. Neither exciting enough to work as a simple shoot 'em up, nor complex enough to interest arcade adventurers. Gunfighter reminds me a little of those old early Gremlin games like Sam Stoat and Grumpy Gumphrey - lovely graphics, but where's the game? Not here, I'm afraid.
