Outlaws

Comprises of two cassettes, the program and a head cleaner.

The Lone Rider's sole game, is a straight forward shooter set in the wild west, the instructions give the usual tantalising instructions

Outlaws
Many years ago, rode a band of men. They came from the East of the desert and with them they brought terror and destruction. Nobody was safe from the perils of a merciless death, no family was complete, no man was free.
They were the OUTLAWS.
Driven only by murderous ambition and selfish greed they scoured the land, leaving behind them a trail of death and pillage. Town after town they plundered, with no man left who could stop them and no man left alive who dare try. The townsfolk lived at their mercy and prayed that the evil band of men's dark shadow of doom would not pass over their valley. Frightened though they were, they still found hope, and they prayed that one day someone would come and deliver them from the OUTLAWS' evil tyranny.
The Lone Rider
Many months of hell passed and then one night out of a clear moonlit sky, arose a fiery storm and through this storm rode a man, a stranger with vengeance in his eyes. He had no name and no past, he had been sent to avenge them, for he was the LONE RIDER.

The major problem is that the Lone Rider seems to be able to be killed by one shot, while needing to shoot his enemies at least three times to be rid of them, he is also regularly dispatched by the scenery, in fact the player will have to work exceptionally hard to keep The Lone Rider alive, he can duck thankfully, and will need to do so very frequently, good animation is about the only memorable thing about it, as it gets old very quickly.

 Not fondly remembered by Ultimate fans.
