Gunman Clive (Series) Review
Posted: 6 months ago, last updated 9 weeks ago.
In Gunman Clive, you play as the title character, in a Wild West themed world, as he tries to rescue the mayor's daughter. There are 16 levels and enemies vary in each, from bandits who carry rifles and dynamite, to animals such as pelicans and wolves; and occasional large boss characters too. The sequel, Gunman Clive 2, provides even more levels, enemies and more varied gameplay.
In addition to Clive, all the games offer additional playable characters (some unlockable) that control slightly differently and offer a different challenge to players.
Both games are available together in the Gunman Clive HD Collection.
Rated PEGI 12 for frequent non-realistic violence towards human characters. When engaged in combat the player’s character is equipped with a hand held firearm, (other weapons such as a spear become available at a later stage). Characters that are shot or stabbed with a spear disappear immediately in a puff of smoke, likewise with animals. Fantasy characters are presented as large robotic characters and despite their size will eventually succumb to being shot or stabbed and disappear from view. The violence is non-realistic looking.
ESRB EVERYONE 10+ for fantasy violence.
