Game Play


The object of this game is to find the Spanish treasure of lost gold that is hidden in a cave in the mountains, return it to the mission and recieve a reward for it. Throughout the game, you must shoot the outlaws before they shoot you, being careful not to shoot any innocent by-standers.

At the beginning, you are given a target practice session to shoot dynamite, a cow skull and a sign. Afterwards, a dying prospector will give you half of the map to the treasure and inform you that the mission padre has the other half. You must then go to town where you will have to fight against attacking outlaws.

When you reach the mission, shoot the outlaw disguised as the padre, then, when the real padre appears, hold your fire. After the padre gives you the other half of the map, you will be able to choose one of three guides: The Professor, a British card shark Shooting Beaver, an Indian scout or Buckskin Bonnie, a woman ranger. Depending on which guide you chose, you will be facing one of three gangs on your quest, either Mad Dog's Men, The Renegades or The Bandidos.

During the journey, you must protect your guide from certain attacks. Occasionally, you will be challenged to a showdown between a certain number of battlefields. Later, your guide will tell you that the treasure will be lost unless you shoot one of the objects at the gatling gun. When you reach the gatling gun, you must remember the object your guide told you to shoot either the moonshine, the ammunition box, the lantern or the dynamite. After that, when making it past a few more battlefields, the guide will leave you on your own to find the treasure.

Once you have made it to the caves, you must shoot the cow skull, where ever it appears, to find the treasure chest and return it to the mission. As you fight your way back to the mission, more of the outlaws will attempt to take the treasure from you. Before you can get the treasure into the mission, you must challenge Mad Dog to a final showdown where you must shoot him directly in the head twice to take him down. However, sometimes you will not always bring back the right treasure chest to the mission, since the chest will have either sand or rocks in it instead of the gold. If this happens, you will have to start all over again , choose another guide and continue the quest once or twice more until you bring back the right treasure chest containing the gold.
