Cowboy Amstrad Type In
« on: October 07, 2019, 08:16:39 AM »
Does anyone recall a cowboy game type in on the Amstrad?

What I am remembering is the classic blue background, with blocky cowboys and cactus, it was a 2 player game and when you fired your gun it would shoot off and if it hit the cactus it would change direction by 90 degrees...

I think it was a type in but I've just gone thru most of the Amstrad Action magazines (https://archive.org/details/amstrad-action-magazine?&sort=titleSorter&page=2) but didnt find it in the Type In section...

I cannot recall it, though, just reading that made me think of Kane, a cowboy game which I played a lot! :)

Obviously no good, but, I might have a play on that laters! :D

Gunslinger was what I was thinking about!



Shame I can't find a video of it hitting the rocks...

Even those guys have decent sized legs, okay - working on some legs that might 'walk' for my cowboy dudes / dudettes (you've hard of Calamity Jane - I'm sure she wore strides. In fact , I credit  the following image to H.R.Locke (1895):
