You're the great old cowboy and those pesky martians have invaded your territory. Use your trusty pistol to shoot them all. Use fewer shots to get a higher star count. This game will test both your reflexes and brains.

Action, platformer and physics pyzzle all masterfully combined. Simple idea, clever levels, addicting gameplay, and none of it too difficult or without reward! The violence is harmless (kinda) and that grinning cowboy with shaded eyes and green hair just the perfect hero. Aliens look vicious enough to seem deserved of their imminent death too. Great game!


Good game, pretty challenging late game, but very fun to play. :)

good game. i got all the stars, but none of the medals work

The game is very good and logical as well, there is some challenge too, but I must write about one glitch that I encountered. While playing the game simply missed levels 29 and 36, moving directly from 28 to 30 and from 35 to 37. It also gave me the last medal after level 40 while the level 36 was incomplete. I noticed that when I entered level select.

Love the fact you move around as the cowboy, that was clever and fun! I felt that without a bullet sight line many of the shots were tough to see, especially with the finicky explosive barrels. So it was fun but still frustrating.
