Shooting puzzle that takes place on the pages of century-old newspapers. Comes complete with breathtaking stunts, cartoony characters and slapstick humor.

Ruffian is an old newspaper cartoon character that seeks historical justice. He was neglected and disregarded by upper classes for too long, but the time for putting paper over the cracks has passed. Now is the time for slapstick cartoony revenge.

Guide your gunslinging anti-hero through the series of brain-teasing spatial ricochet puzzles that will test your wit, agility and reaction speed.

Score highest scores by hitting all targets with as few bullets as possible.

Unlock criminatory achievements by completing even more sophisticated stunts and meeting specific requirements.

Show those arrogant high-brow paper goodies from the “Fashion life” and “Modern family” sections what a killing article really means!

This game's visual and audio style is a love letter to the early 1900-20-th newspaper cartoon comedies, commercials and comic strips. Some of the models and visuals are a tribute to the works of James Guilford Swinnerton (main character design) and Charles William Kahles, prolific and influential cartoonist. Among the latter's creations are comic strips dedicated to the hilarious adventures of Hairbreadth Harry, his fiancée Belinda and their archrival, iconic villain Relentless Rudolph.

This game is a dedication to the hard work and creative talent of countless cartoonists and newspaper artists of Progressive Era in USA.



Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Great game, very addicting. There was a very hard level early on that should have been at a later stage and was followed by way easier ones, but other than that it was perfection!

Rated 3 / 5 stars

This is a pretty fun game with vintage graphics and a unique theme. I enjoyed playing this game but after awhile you can only play so much of the same thing, even if the levels do get harder. So if this is your type of game, you'll enjoy it.
