Quick Draw McGraw

Train driving in the wild west wasn't all horn honking and potted meat sandwiches, y'know. Getting your passengers and cargo safely to their destination was almost an impossibility. You could be sure that somewhere along the line the train would be attacked by bandits and indians, stealing anything they could lay their hands on. That was until Quick Draw McGraw came onto the scene. Will they dare attack with you as Sheriff McGraw on board?

Quick Draw is played on the top of a moving train with thieves, indians and general nastiness coming at you from all directions. You're armed only with a pistol and some clever shooting will be needed if you are to survive for long.

Occasionally, you'll come across an icon on the side of a carriage. Collecting these will either give you extra points or act as a smart bomb (if you collect a dynamite icon) or give extra energy (an apple).

There's another part to the game, a shooting gallery scene inside one of the carriages. Shooting the baddies and avoiding the goodies is your objective. Get the wrong one, and it could be curtains for you.

Quick Draw McGraw is an entertaining budget shoot-'em-up. If you fancy a quick blast to get away from brain boggling games then get out your best trigger finger and have a rootin', tootin' good time!
