Your frontier lass is being kidnapped! Get your revolver and head out the door! Gunman Clive is a sidescrolling action/shooting game by Bertil Hörberg, starring you versus a bunch of bad guys. Utilizing some fantastic 3D visuals in a two dimensional world, you will have the pleasure of shooting your way through the strangest old west town you've ever seen, complete with moving platforms and loads of enemies. Oh, and watch out for ducks, those things can be deadly!
The on-screen controls allow Clive to move left and right, but you'll also need to duck under bullets and climb ladders, not to mention basic jumping and shooting actions. Enemies are usually marked by their blue color, though expect to see a few surprises as you work your way through the town and beyond. The bad guys play it smart and like to duck behind crates, take refuge on high platforms, and just generally make your day a difficult one. Fortunately, you get to eat cake (which replenishes your health) and collect pistol power-ups to diversify your shots, allowing you to reach enemies without putting yourself in harm's way.
Gunman Clive is a very simple sort of game, and it sticks to its arcade roots unapologetically. The unique sketch-like visuals that scroll across the screen really turn the experience into something cinematic, and the action is surprisingly intense, especially for a game controlled with virtual buttons. It's a short but wild action game that's a smart purchase no matter which mobile device you own!
