Summary

A western themed puzzler, in Virtuous Western you need to avoid gunfire, pick up bullets and shoot the enemy to clear the level. Its all very simple in its execution and it is a light hearted puzzle game. Whilst it won’t push your thought process too far it will top up your trophy count nicely and give you a quick “I’m smart” fix that we could all do with from time to time.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
