- The sepia art style is pretty and makes you feel as if you’re walking through a sketch. It’s minimal, yet it works very well.
- Gunman Clive really taps into the nostalgia factor here, taking direct inspiration from old-school sidescrollers titles like Mega Man.
- Leaping from platform to platform and instantly dying is never frustrating, but actually a fun experience thanks to instant respawning.
- Learning to play the game takes very little time. This is an easy title to pick up and play.
- Different characters offers chances to play the title over, offering multiple experiences.
- It’s only two fucking dollars.
- Hour worth of playtime.
- It’s only $2. I’m not really upset here…

Gunman Clive: A Worthy Bang for your Small Buck
The concept of indie-gaming really just turns me on in today’s game market. A tiny team or sole person creates a video game with a small budget, releases it, and the creator(s) waits for people to find it and dig through the game, leaving a player with the feeling of wanting more from the content’s source, or just similar titles. A big part of indie-gaming is also tapping into the nostalgia feeling, bringing back difficultly into levels similar to gaming in the early 90’s, and giving it to the consumer with a fresh, yet familiar new feeling.
In the case of Gunman Clive, Bertil Hörbergs (who worked on the Bionic Commando reboot), has given iOS and 3DS gamers an artsy sidescroller game for older gamers to appreciate and newer players to gaze upon wondrously.
The fantastic sepia art style that Gunman Clive boasts gives it a unique repackaging of an old-school 90’s game. Think of this game as a western Mega Man, in which you’ll play the role of a cowboy (or Cliveman’s beau that offers different control abilities, as well as an unlockable character when you beat the game once) strategically shooting enemies, while also avoiding instant death-traps, jumping from platform to platform, and fighting tough bosses through each level. Along the way, you’ll pick up different brief weapon abilities (three-way shooter, rockets, etc.) that aid in fighting pesky enemy cowboys and flying birds.
What really makes this game challenging is the fact that there are no checkpoints on any level, meaning you’ll eventually learn simple platform movement patterns, as well as what lies ahead of your path after each death you experience. That’s not a bad thing either — Gunman Clive does it in such a way where you really do learn from your mistakes. Every death you tally up returns your main character to the very start of the short stage in an instant, as to not make this experience especially frustrating.
This game definitely deserves a couple of play-throughs. Though Gunman Clive may be a bit brief, it’s got a beautiful looking style, and the game offers multiple options for re-playing the title. The title fantastic, and for a measly $2, you’ve got nothing to lose.
Over on another site, the question was raised, “What Next?” What next indeed. Most of the big name properties have been mined for sets over the past few years. Batman, Spider-man, X-Men, Justice League, Avengers, Hulk, Superman, Captain America, Thor, Teen Titans, Iron Man, etc. For DC, there were 3 areas mentioned over and over [...]
