Do you long to get out of the rut of shooting bug-eyed monsters from outer space? Yes? Well, this is the program for you.

In Gunsmoke, you are plunged into the old Wild West as a gunfighter, and only quick reactions can save you from the bad guys.

This package takes a fair time to load, in three parts: first the instructions and then the background scene. This is a typical western town with good graphics of a saloon, sheriff's office, store and barn.


After Part Three loads, a tune is played and you start the shoot-out.

It takes a lot of practice to even survive, let alone kill one of the baddies.

But this makes the game that much more of a challenge, and will maintain long-term interest, long after the usual zap-pow games have been relegated to the back of a drawer.

Good graphics, sound effects and music - Software Invasion have set themselves a high standard to keep up. Good luck to them. All in all, very good value for money.
