Gun Fright is a witty and welcome change to the wizard-dungeon type of arcade adventure. Yup pardners even Clint Eastwood would approve.
Crash! (Feb, 1986)
Well it seems that Ultimate have made up for the recent spate of not-so-good games with Gunfright. Some may argue that it’s a Nightshade clone but a very good and addictive one. The graphics are really good with a few nice touches like a horse which enables you to go faster and small children excitedly pointing the way to the nearest outlaw. The arcade sequences involved are colourful and very detailed. Definitely deserves a CRASH Smash

Ja, das ist der legitime Nachfolger von Nightshade. Sein Name: GUNFRIGHT! Das Strickmuster bei diesem Wild-West-Spiel ist dem des mittelalterlichen "Ritterspiel" sehr ähnlich. Doch beim genaueren Hinsehen ist noch "mehr drin".

Gunfright is good - it's difficult, attractive, amusing and even passably addictive - but for Ultimate it's not good enough.

I did not find Gunfright particularly playable. Encounters with wanted criminals were very few and far between and when they did occur, you tend to get killed straight away. It's a pity because it could easily have been a very good game if only the balance was a bit better.

Still, if you are after a souped-up version of the ancient old gunfight arcade game, then this is for you. But all the frills and pretty graphics don't make the game worth nearly £10.
Your Sinclair (Mar, 1986)
What ah'm tryin' to tell yer is that despite the mildly economic overlay of bullet an' hoss buyin' and bounty collecting, this is another Ultimate repeat and if you didn't have Nightshade and you're a fan of shoot 'em ups set among durn purdy pictures it'll make you whoop with joy.

Alles in allem ein amüsanter und empfehlenswertes Spiel für alle nimmermüden Fans von Action-Adventures und die, die es noch werden wollen.
