This was so fun, for so many reasons. I liked the introduction cutscene bits to new game stuff, that was cool with the snakes and the gun (about as far as I got). I always love the kinda games with an environment that all matters to what you're doing and the cowboys shooting each other and the grass and all that are so cool. Plus it looks perfect. No delay in


I could feel the atmosphere of a retro arcade game perfectly. The character animations, the UI, and the non-gameplay presentation are all well-crafted and awesome!


that music and dodging are clutch! I like how you could get the sheriffs to shoot each other if you line them up right.


Yeah I agree with Aldeas, if I ever make a micro arcade cabinet or something with my rasp-pi I'll probably see about loading this onto it somehow :p


I'm convinced this is a real arcade machine from another dimension. You've absolutely hit it out of the park in recreating the experience, you've come up with a fun idea and built a solid progression out of it, introducing new mechanics as you play through the levels. The little cutscenes were very well done and so much fun to watch. Excellent work man :)


The game is so well made that I want it to run on my actual arcade cabinet XD

I really loved it


Love this vibe here. The tricky maneuvers you need to avoid bullets feels just like a Pac Man or Dig Dug, and the controls are very tight. The cutscenes add so much character. I'd love to play this in a cabinet, it deserves it! Well done.


This really feels like an arcade game, controls are smooth and the game play is very engaging!


if this had been released in the 80s, games like Galaga or Pacman wouldn't have a chance.

The game presentation are awsome! The controls are very fluid, the dificult progression works very well and the music realy is the old west in 8-bits. I love the track intro of Ennio Morricone at limited hardware sound XD. 

Thanks for the great experience! You realy make games too good. 


I love this! :D

It's Pacman with a thematic and mechanical twist. This could have been a real arcade game. Even down to the "cabinet art" on the sides of the web page. The art and sound are spot-on. And the gameplay is fun too.

Some areas for improvement:

- I don't like that the grass is divided into 4 "sub-tiles". It makes it hard to get grass nestled in corners, and it's too easy to miss one or two sub-tiles in general. I want to move fast and never look back.

- Movement feels too slow. As a result stages take a while to complete.


Yeah the sub-tiles were messing me up as well.  Particularly when you're going around corners actually since it's hard to tell which tiles you're actually on.


This feels like it could be on a real arcade cabinet. In fact I would love to play this in one of those arcade bars with a beer in hand. The era feel is dead-on, between the weird synthesized voiceing and the cutesy cutscenes. Fun idea, great execution!
