Play OverviewPlay Overview

Boot Hill Bounties (2017), following on from Boot Hill Heroes is a comedic adventure into the Wild West. It combines spaghetti western gunslinging, outlaws, brave lawmen, and the untamed wilderness with a role-play experience.

Play involves exploring the pixilated western world. You take on missions to pursuit and battle the bad guys. Unlike other role-play games enemies can be seen and avoided. When you choose to engage them, play switches to a turn-based battle. You cue up different attacks from each character to suit the current battle.

As you progress you realise this is a deep recreation of the western world. There's a range of locations and encounters. Fight outlaws and animals. Can you stop a barroom brawl? Can you defeat a gang of raccoons hoarding precious garbage?

There are over 350 inhabitants to meet and help with unique side quests. Beyond the progression there's also the option to grow crops, cook meals, customize your weapons with status ailments, learn medical treatments, solve riddles, compete in the ‘Chuckwagon Chief’ cooking competition.
