8. Gunfright (1985)
Gunfright sees you play the role of a Sheriff trying to clear the town of 20 bandits. It is broken up into two distinct play-styles. The first is an isometric exploration view where you attempt to hunt down the bounty. The second is an early form of ‘FPS’ where you have to take aim and quickly kill the bandits before they kill you. The Rewind feature makes this a doddle.
You will get an early tutorial on how the ‘FPS’ works in the form of shooting money bags that fall past the screen. You need as much money as you can get because you need to buy your bullets, pay fines, and buy a horse (bullets are bought automatically when you run out). The bounties you collect will be worth a decent amount.
Buying a horse will significantly speed you up and makes it much easier to catch some bandits (some of whom are on horses themselves). Get on a horse whenever you can as there’s an achievement for spending a certain amount of time on horseback.
Here is a map of the town:
Make sure to turn Infinite Lives on in the cheat menu and start the game to unlock:
Now you need to start exploring the town to find your first target: Buffalo Bill. Somewhere, placed randomly in town, will be horses. If you have enough money to buy it, walk over it to purchase, though it will only last a short time. The bandits are also randomly placed, though certain citizens will point in the direction you need to go.
You also, for some stupid reason, need to avoid walking into any civilians as both of you will immediately die. Makes sense, huh? You’ll also have to pay a fine for it. Also, dust bunnies are invincible and deadly...
Anyway, once you’ve located the bandit, shoot him to start the quick-draw mini-game. As soon as you move the cursor, it counts as you drawing your gun which will make the bandit dodge out of the way and shoot back. You have two strategies:
- Wait for them to draw first then try and shoot them before they shoot you
- Draw first and hope you hit them with your first shot
If you fail, simply rewind and try again. There are 20 bandits in all, and you must win a duel against all of them:
Firstly, kill 19 of the 20 Bandits (the 19th Bandit is imaginatively called “Bandits”). Make sure to ride the horse as much as possible. If you haven’t unlocked it naturally yet, there is a horse right next to the spawn point (see map) that you can ride until it runs out – you can reset it by dying. Repeat this until you unlock:
Next, fire loads of bullets. Once you’ve fired a total of 250, you’ll unlock:
Now go and kill your final Bandit. Once you have won duels against all 20 bandits, you will unlock:
Gunfright: Beat all 20 duels in the game over time.
Now start a new game. Play the money-shooting section at the start then quit. Repeat this until you’ve shot a total of 100 money bags. This will unlock:
Gunfright: Shoot 100 money bags over time.
And now it’s time for the Snapshots. The first Snapshot requires you to shoot 35 money bags within 45 seconds. Once you’ve completed it, you will unlock:
The second Snapshot requires you to blow all of your money as quickly as possible. While on horseback, simply run around town running over as many damn civilians as you can. Serves them right for being so annoying during the game itself...
The third Snapshot requires you to kill Buffalo Bill without dying yourself. Follow the directions until you find him then simply shoot him to complete (you don’t even have to duel). Remember to shoot any civilians that get in your way.
The fourth Snapshot requires you to find your horse without firing any bullets. For this Snapshot, the map is reversed:
Luckily, one of the horses is really nearby. Leave the room, head left, go up straight through the first building to the left, and continue left to find Panto.
The fifth Snapshot requires you to gather $500 in 120 seconds. There are money bags randomly lying around town. You need to find one and fire your bullet so you get a refill. Once you’ve done this, head to the large building near the centre of the map as Klondike Pete can almost always be found in the lower room:
Pete has a reasonably slow draw, so it’s reasonably safe to let him draw first. Win the Duel against Klondike Pete to unlock:
That is all of the achievements and Stamps unlocked for this game. Congrats!
