Yee-haw! Experience life in the wild, wild west in this adventure co-designed by jokesters Al Lowe and Josh Mandel. As the title suggests, you are a gunman-turned-pharmacist who will soon find enough cause to pick up a gun again. Excellent puzzles (except for the annoying, devious copy-protection scheme disguised as "puzzle" in filling prescriptions), cool plot, and tons of zany characters. The humor is somewhat stale and predictable, however. Suffice it to say that if you have never understood the appeal of John Wayne movies and raunchy cowboy humor, you won't enjoy this game. But for anyone who appreciates jokes that have the word "flatulent" in them, this is the perfect game for you.
