Description

It's a stampede!! Your job is to round up as many of the calves as you can. The screen scrolls to the right as you chase the calves; if more than three calves get past you, the game is over. The calves all run at different speeds, and when you rope one you earn points based on how fast it was running. As the game progresses, more and more calves will be on the screen at one time, and other obstacles will begin appearing to trip your horse and slow you down.

Trivia

Players who were able to rack up 3,000 points or higher were eligible to receive the "Trail Drive" patch from Activision if they sent in a screenshot to the company. Players who scored 10,000 points would see a small brand (that looked like a steer's head) at the bottom left of the screen before the score reset to zero.
