West of Loathing is a comedic adventure, although here you role-play as a stick-man cowboy. The quipping characters and intricate puzzles work better with teenagers, but the slapstick comedy will make anyone laugh. Traverse snake-infested gorges, punch skeletons wearing cowboy hats, grapple with demon cows and investigate a wide variety of disgusting spittoons.
