Arkansas, 1880. Your name is Braithwaite. Will Braithwaite (well, it would be!), and you're broke. Not a sausage, nor indeed a dollar. Oh dear. The only solution is to pick yourself up out of the horse trough, slip on your holster and go bounty huntin' for one of the roughest, toughest, fluffiest outlaws in the west to get enough money to lose in another gambing game. So. pausing only to order yourself a gravestone, off you trundle.

Ho hum. What we have here is a rather thinly-disguised Ikari Warriors rip-off. Y'know - a vertically-scrolling overhead-view 'move a little man about and shoot everybody else in sight before they shoot you' job. Thing is, Ikari Warriors was really good. And this isn't.

It's extremely monochrome, the graphics are poor, the scrolling is really slow, it's completely repetitive, not addictive in the slightest, the sound's crap and it's more than a little bit unplayable.

Oh dear A complete waste of time. Why have this when you could have Ikari Warriors (or even Commando) instead?

Blast away at those petrol drum thingies and you may well find yourself a bonus object (or something).
