K - Kane! Once Upon a Time in the West...

A video game imagining of 'High Noon' came to the Commodore 64 in 1986 in the form of wild west jaunt Kane, swiftly followed by Amstrad's conversion which was near identical, if not improved. The jolly & jumpy western theme rolls on during the wonderfully animated horse stages, with the other 2 stages falling into the shooter category providing light amusment. The sound is nice across the board, with some cool samples included too, and while the visuals don't push the CPC, they are more than acceptable. It may be short in terms of longevity, but for what it is it's executed pretty well. Ride 'em cowboy, play that harmonica, grab an oven door...erm... I got me some varmints to kill!
