Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Very good game!

I liked playing this game a lot because it just had so much to offer! I could easily see something like this landing on a professional gaming system given how good the gameplay is. It gets a little repetitive, but great besides that. The best part was being able to collect all those weapons and beat up the enemies. I think most of them could be beaten simply by attacking them relentlessly. I think the lead pipe is the one that managed to do the most damage.

Having a cactus be the protagonist was a pretty original idea. It's a pretty surreal game in that way, especially with how weird the enemies look. Whatever the purpose is, it's a very fun game to play and has everything you need. The controls are fairly smooth and the game is kind to you as it goes on. There's so much detail put into the backgrounds, too.

Simplicity is golden.

While I was playing this, I couldn't help but think this game would be right at home with 8-bit graphics and sound on an old NES system. The game really captures that fun well paced simplicity that you found in those old games, minus the difficulty. I had fun time playing this game, the only reasons I gave it a 9 out of 10 are due to small complaints; the melee weapons were much more fun than the guns, which doesn't seem right in a western themed game; and the game was much too easy. All those being said, still go out and play this game.
