Sidescrollers. Guns. Jumping. Brown. It's as if all of these things were just meant to go together since the dawn of time, yet no one dares combine them for fear of failing. Finally, one developer set out to do the unthinkable and bring them all together in a never before seen combination of awesome, old, and stuff. The end result was Gunman Clive, a retro-style sidescroller of kickass proportions.

Seriously, watch this. It's well worth 1:11 of your life.

In Gunman Clive, you play the role of, you guessed it - Gunman Clive. A gaggle of bandits who are up to no good have kidnapped the Mayor's daughter, and, as the biggest badass in all the land, it's up to you to safe her.

The game offers 16 levels of in-your-face action with an old-school gaming style. As you can see from the trailer, the game has a unique artstyle, along with dozens of enemies and over-the-top boss battles.

    That brown is terrible, but I kind of like it. The gameplay looks like it has potential though. I'll check it out.

    I played it and finished it the day it came out, it's quite short, but good.....if you have a Xperia Play or some other type of controller, the touchscreen controls leave quite a bit to be desired.

    Beautiful graphics in my opinion. Gave it a try and it's awesome. Died a lot but I like that it's a bit more challenging than other games. Very good game which runs very smooth on galaxy nexus. Just had problems on my prime, but contacted the developer already with a logfile. What I really liked is the option to use hardware keys or adjust the size of the d-pad. Something every game should have.

    It's worth it's money - especially for people who like this genre.
