@Yogibear: It would be nice to find your "Bonanza" tune in a future western-game on the C64! There are many other genres as a duel like these:

WOW! This is the ultimate Cowboy Duel!
Bad Bob is pretty hard to master... oh my. However: so many great levels and options and tiny ideas. What a massive release!

I especially like how you can shoot the hat off the other player... ;)

Wow, really nice game, even for single players. I like the VCS reference level and also that there are quite a few different levels to fight through. Great party game! Thanks a lot for this one!

@The Shadow:
Thanks for the NTSC tip. This is a timing-subroutine of the game kernal for waiting of rasterlines. I can't use your "skip"-opcode for the PAL version, but i'll find another way for future projects, which wokr 100% in PAL & NTSC! :)

@DATA-LAND: IIRC I also played it on the Philips Videopac. Well it was well worth the wait! It has become really nice!

For functionality on NTSC (standard) and C=64 (old) NTSC systems, ingame, place byte #$24 at memory location $156D.
This will effectively bypass a crash and allow full PAL/NTSC compatibility.

Since 2011/2012 i know the ATARI VCS 2600 "Gunfight" version, i wished and planned an own version. But i hesitated, because i know it will be a big project! And the CPU opponent must not be an idiot - that would be a catastrophe!!! After "Krieg im Weltraum" i started the project with a big and good concept on paper. I planned 3-4 months of production, but i lasted 7 months...

Cool game! Prime Suspect, JSL and I were planning to make such a game but since this is a good version we won't! I even made a tune for it in Renoise. (Bonanza cover). Maybe it can be used somewhere else in future.

Very nice game with lovely details. Thanks a lot for this 'christmas-gift'. I'm looking forward for more data-land productions.

Wow, excellent work. I'll be playing this a lot over Christmas :)

As this is clearly a clone of 1975's Gun Fight by Midway, for more authenticity, is it possible to also add an optional death musical sound sequence in the music options menu in a future update? :)

One of the oldest game ideas for one of the best video game systems!
- Traditional western melodies in high-quality by Richard Bayliss
- 1-2 player mode with tournament support
- Much game settings
- Full screen size

...and we have a special guest:
"Bad-Bob" the CPU opponent - inspired by the movie "The Life And Times Of Judghe Roy Bean" (1972)

For this version we're inspired by these originals:
PHILIPS G 7000 #14 "Revolverhelden"
ATARI VCS 2600 "Outlaw"
ATARI VCS 2600 "Gunfight"
Commodore 64 "The Duel"

Have fun and live your dream!
