It is very fun patrolling Gold Gulch and talking to all of its townspeople. The dialog choices will engage you for hours as you explore different outcomes, though after a while the game might seem repetitive and you'll feel the urge to just shoot everybody. Still, game and atmosphere are great, and I highly recommend everybody step into the shoes of the brave Gold Gulch Sheriff and meet the colorful townsfolk.
Zzap! (Apr, 1986)
'Absolutely brilliant' was my first reaction to this game, but after playing it a few times my initial enthusiasm was dampened somewhat. The trouble is that there are only eleven scenes, and once you've been through them a couple of times they all become dull and highly predictable. The shooting bits are quite fun, but again, once sussed the player can win every time. The sound and graphics are all quite jolly, but it's not really a game I could recommend, especially the s-l-o-w cassette version.
Happy Computer (Mar, 1986)
Leider wiederholen sich die Dialoge nach einer Weile eifrigen Spiels, was den an und für sich hohen Spielwitz deutlich einschränkt. Von diesem Makel abgesehen ist das Programm eine Wucht. Spielprinzip, Grafik und Originalität erhalten durch die Bank Bestnoten. Ein Spitzen- Titel, der auf Dauer leider etwas langweilig wird.
