Summary

Sierra mix more good medicine

The Good

Freddy and his entourage of in-game characters are likeable and believable and the dialogue (including a dirty old man Whittling Willy who acts as a narrator) is entertaining and funny.

In my view its this aspect of the game that makes it a good game, as the gameplay and graphics are mediocre really.

The Bad

The first quarter of the game is boring, and much of it is spent mixing medicines to a recipe at the pharmacy. This feels like nothing more than an elaborate copy-protection system.

The game-world - a small Wild West town - although 'nicely' depicted is a bit small and uninspiring.

The Bottom Line

If you like big complex adventure games with lots of difficult puzzles this is not for you. For most of the rest of us ordinary mortals this is a pleasant and likeable adventure, and one to seek out.
