Game Details

A sequel to Crossbow and Cheyenne. This game had an unparalleled level of graphic violence for the time. The torture chamber level featured a topless woman on the rack. If you shot the handle, it would turn, ripping the woman in half as she screamed. Other than the violence, there is no significant improvement or difference over its predecessors.

***** by bklynfx. Comment: "I have been searching for this game for almost 20yrs! It was the best shooting game (and bloodiest) for the time. It is also one of the most memorable for me and, for anyone who's ever played it I'm sure. Does anyone know where this can be bought and if it comes for any of the game systems out there now? I think they made it for Nintendo Nes but I can't seem to find it anywhere! HELP and Thanks!!!" 2003-11-15 02:55:50Z
