DescriptionThe Mexican gunslinger El Tejon once joined the dreaded Nine gang, hoping to become rich and famous. However, as he became disillusioned with the gang's murderous ways and distanced himself from it, he turned into a liability to the criminals. The gang's leader shot him and left him for dead; barely surviving, El Tejon was imprisoned by the authorities. In the prison, he meets a member of a revolutionary movement, and becomes determined to regain his freedom and exact revenge upon those who betrayed him.
Dead Man's Hand is a first-person 3D shooter set in the Wild West. The protagonist is armed with a fairly standard arsenal, which includes pistols, rifles, shotguns, TNT, bombs, etc. The game rewards the player for precise shooting and creative ways of killing enemies (e.g. by shooting a rock that drops on them): as the player practices these activities, the protagonist's "trick meter" is being gradually refilled. A full trick meter allows secondary shooting mode, unique for each weapon. Between levels the player can compete in poker to increase the protagonist's health and ammunition.
