The Game

When Daniel was eight, he was kidnapped by a band of outlaws. Taken away from his family he was forced to become an outlaw to profit his kidnappers.

But Daniel had a good heart and knew the things he was forced to do were not right. One night, he stole their boss gun, a bright Colt, and killed his captors while they were asleep. He ran away under a hail of bullets.

He was found almost dead by an old man who took care of him. Years later, when this old man died, Daniel found himself once again without a family. He decided to go back to the city where he was born.

When he arrived to Cowntury County he found a land without laws. Bandits were the owners of every gold mine and town. People needed a hero and Daniel needed revenge.

They called him Daniel Colt.

How To Play

Outlaws has nine different levels, one training level and two bonus levels.

To finish a level, you must kill the number of enemies indicated by the number next to the skull on the HUD (Heads Up Display).

You start the game with four lives, the current one and three more represented by stars.

Every time you get hit, you lose a life and one of your stars gets a bloody hole.

When you lose all your lives the game is over.


There are three different kind of enemies, each one with his own behaviour. Take into account that their behaviour and abilities can change along the game.

  1. Close Enemies
  2. Far Enemies
  3. Window Enemies

Destructible Items

There are different items that enemies will use to hide and avoid being killed. All of them may be destroyed. The numbers of hits needed to be destroy them varies from one to the other. You should destroy them to be able to kill enemies easier.

  1. Bottles
  2. Barrels
  3. Cactus
  4. Stones
  5. Wood Walls
  6. Stone Walls


When barrels are destroyed, if you are lucky, two items can be released. You must fire at them to pick them up. Barrels are found in some of the levels and also on bonus ones.

Money increases your score by 100$

The Drink of life (or elixir of life) will give you one additional life.
