Programs from this company seem to be written carefully and with a high standard of attention to detail, and this one is no exception.

Two little men, one red and one blue, are placed in a random landscape of trees, cacti and rocks. In the two-player option, one man's movement is controlled from the keyboard and the others by joystick. A single player can play against the computer.

The length of play is pre-selected at between one and nine minutes, and a score of hits is kept. Play is fast and furious, and care must be taken not to be hit by a ricochet off a rock. Cacti can be shot out of the way, but not trees.

At the end of the game, the victor celebrates his win while the victim lies prone. The only omission is a user-defined graphic vulture to circle the spot.

Not, of course, an original idea for a game, but this version should keep aspiring John Waynes off the streets from high-noon till high-half-past-three at least.
