===============================================================================


Western games are a rarity. Western adventure games even more so. Al Lowe,
creator of the Leisure Suit Larry games, decided to make an entry in this
original sub-genre by making an adventure about a pharmacist that has arrived
in a town that is slowly closing down due to a corrupt sheriff. Only days after
he has arrived, a set of troubles are inflicted on the town: A bunch of
flatulent horses, a stampede of snails, a poisoned water supply and a gang of
violent thugs. The game involves Freddy's attempts to deal with all of these
problems while trying to keep his pharmacy from closing.
