Worth it

It's easily worth what you pay it's a fun little game with many objectives to complete, but the only thing you get to upgrade is the cowboy's attire, and well the bit graphics kinda make it difficult to detail. I would imagine a game like this would benefit from having a different art style. Also it's best to buy the game in the bundle you get both it, and it's sequel 2 bit cowboy rides again.

Not a reliable game because of bugs and glitches.

You know you can't trust a game when the horse you're riding vanishes mid-jump, and doesn't respawn but the game keeps prompting you to jump on it.

Retro Gameboy Nostalgia goodness!

Just installed this again on my iPhone 6S and it's just as much fun as when I played it all the way back at release. Controls are great, soundtrack is on point and the level designs make it worth exploring :) throw in the Saloon, Doctor, and Casino shops and this is a really fun and challenging little Westernvania :)
