Cowboy Blues

About the Story

The town of Stonetomb is a town in peril: Mad Jake and his gang of notorious outlaws have shown up and promised more mayhem than you can shake a stick at. The residents of Stonetomb are powerless against them (powerless = too damned scared to do anything) and so the task of saving Stonetomb falls to its last remaining cowboy: YOU!

Now, all you need to do is get some time off from your day job at the bank and you'll have all the time in the world for rescuing the town...

Editorial Reviews

Delron Review Compilation
If you downloaded this game expecting an authentic picture of the old west, you're in for a big surprise - this wild west town has space invaders machines, television, rock and roll and all manner of other incongruous features. I haven't been playing it for long and I've already been struck down by God and been laughed at by a bunch of schoolkids for walking into a door. So not your average run-of-the-mill Western then. The characters, a bunch of reprobates who could have stepped straight out of a Robert Rankin novel are funny and the writing is, as always for one of David's games very good indeed. Recommended
