Largely underrated in its day, people are finally beginning to appreciate what an ingenious little game this is. As you guide a cowboy on a horse up and down the screen, you lasso steer that approach from the right, and the game ends when three get by. Cattle of different shades move at varying rates, but you can "nudge" groups of them forward. A typical game of Stampede tends to be short, largely due to those stationary "black angus" cows that appear without warning. Sometimes snagging those babies seems to require as much luck as skill. Although this is very close to the original Atari 2600 Stampede (Activision, 1981), there are less steer on the screen at any given time, and they look more chunky. Also, your lasso has a little less range, which will give Intellivision fans a serious case of "lasso envy" (and rightly so). The audio is fair, with its steady "clop clop" of hooves. For a fun game that doesn't require much time investment, give Stampede a try.
Neben den Kälbern gibt es auch noch Ochsen, die auf der Stelle stehen und sich dem Cowboy stellen wollen. Dies ist natürlich dem Spieler nicht gerade genehm, da man sich dem recht schnell nähert und man kein Rind entkommen lassen darf. Denn sobald man drei Rinder entkommen lassen hat, ist das Spiel vorbei. Auch vor herumliegenden Knochen muss man sich in Acht nehmen, da man so kurzzeitig ausgeschaltet wird und auch so weiteres Vieh entkommen kann. Technisch gibt es so an dem Spiel nichts auszusetzen, wobei es im direkten Vergleich mit der Atari 2600 Version etwas blockiger aussieht.
