Description

Devlin was an outlaw of Mexico, an outlaw who grew tired of his gang, the Los Gauchos and set up an elaborate plan to walk off with their gold. After gunfights and losing his eye, Devlin set himself up for an easy life north of the border. That was ten years ago and now Devlin's traded his guns for a priest's collar. The year now counts 1862, the beginning of the American Civil War, and Devlin is suddenly attacked by a new group of outlaws who promptly burn down his church and steal his gold. There's only one way to protect his parish and that's to return to his gunslinging days and fill the outlaws full of lead.

The game is a western shooter that takes place from a top-down perspective on some levels and on others becomes a first person rail shooter. In top view, Devlin moves with the keyboard while the mouse changes his orientation and fires his weapon. In first-person modes, there is no movement and Devlin must move his mouse cursor around the screen and click on each opponent to shoot them dead. The game offers you a variety of objectives and a progressing story. Six shooters, shotguns, rifles and dynamite will all be at Devlin's disposal as weapons to clear the Texas lands. On a few level, the game goes for stealth and you must sneak up on foes with only a knife. Crates can be found scattered around which contain weapon ammunition and health restoration items.
