Law Of The West

Gold Gulch is a tough Wild West town. All the Sheriff has to do is survive until sundown. But there are mean dudes around determined to fill him up with lead.

And that means you have to think quick, talk fast and move your Colt 45 like greased lightning.

We've only seen a preview of this game and it certainly looks like one to keep an eye out for.

Law Of The West

You have to converse with nearly a dozen of the town's most notable characters, for information or co-operation as you try your damndest to maintain law and order in Gold Gulch.

They include the wise-cracking saloon owner, and various bad characters who talk with their guns.

Your performance is judged after each game, regardless of whether you survive or end up in Boot Hill.

And survival doesn't mean much if the bank gets robbed, the robbers get away, and you accidentally shoot the schoolmarm trying to stop them.

But be warned the program contains language that, say the makers, may be unsuitable for children!
