One Sentence
A nice run and gun platformer with heavy mega man influence and some creative boss design.

A Bit More
The sound effects are probably the weakest part of the game while the music is excellent.
The game starts pretty easy and the difficulty ramps up almost too quickly into some really interesting platforming segments rather than just the run and gun of the early levels. Enemies are kind of lack luster but the tough platforming segments in the end are worth sticking around for if you are into those kind of things (there's a VVVVVV tribute as well)

Bottom Line
Worth the 1.99$ and I think it's a nice addition to any platformers fans.

Gunman Clive is a pretty nice platformer though it has some flaws.

What i liked:

* Nice 3D feel book art graphics;
* Responsive and functional controls;
* There are some good level design ideas, like a big variety of moving platforms, enemy placements;
* Challenging;

What I didn't like:

*Sound effects and music. Music is very generic and seems like it was composed using Nokia 3310 sound sample library. Sound effects belong to an old NES space shooter;
* Enemies. I can understand outlaws and coyotes as enemies but ducks, bunnies and pelicans? Seriously?;
* No story. Who the hell is this Clive and why is he fighting ducks and bunnies?;
* Weapons and powerups. Same thing as with enemies. Restore your health by eating a slice of birthday cake. Why not beer, tabacco or anything else that should belong in a wild west based game. Also you can shoot lasers and bubbles;

Apart from things that I didn't like I still think that the game is worth it's price.

Gunman Clive is a beautifully simplistic platformer in a futuristic wild west setting featuring charming sketch like visuals and a great soundtrack. The controls are tight and feel precise, when matched with the fair platforming, creates a enjoyable experience. New elements are introduced every level, however many are gimmicks which only appear in their respective levels, due to this it should also be noted whilst playing the duck some of these gimmicks feel like a hinderance to play. Gunman Clive is very reminisant of Megaman and Donkey Kong Country as many of the levels feel similar to those I have played in the aforementioned games which I enjoyed. However whilst the game is great in all there are some issues; Difficulty only changes how much health/hits you can take whereas I feel the game would benefit more if it changes the levels or enemies. Whilst the game is indeed short, say 2hrs for your first run of every character combined, I wouldn't say it was repetative, each character handled slightly difficulty, where Clive was the standard character who was the all-round character, Ms. Johnston played a lot like Peach, where her jump has a extended reach thanks to the small float she recieves each jump. The duck was by far the most enjoyable to play as for me, it was more challenging due to the fact you had to avoid enemies rather than confront them. I would definitely recommend this to casual players and platform fanatics alike.

In Summary: 8/10 Great Purchase.
Pros;
+ Stunning sketch like visuals,
+ Great soundtrack,
+ Tight, precise controls,
+ 3 different characters to play, most importantly a duck,
+ Platforming is fair.

Cons;
- Not too long,
- Keys can't be rebound for controller, however can for keyboards,
- Some platforming elements are only gimmicks in a single level,
- Duck doesn't have an intro or ending sequence,
- The game can crash on occasion however this is rare.

Your enjoyment of this game heavily depends on whether you liked NES platforming games, since Gunman Clive is highly reminiscent of those, albeit with better graphical assets among other things.

People usually compare this game to Mega Man, but it's really more similar to Ghosts and Goblins.

The setting is obviously that of the Wild West, and you're entasked with saving some lady, or something... The story is definitely minimal, so if you're expecting a narrative about life as a cowboy, you might be disappointed.

All the sounds and audio fit well in the game, although they aren't extremely impressive. One of my main complaints on this topic are that some of the music tracks are quieter than others. Ironically, the boss theme is the most silent of the bunch, which doesn't do the game any good.

Personally, I'm glad the graphics aren't 8-bit, since we already have enough of those types of retro platformers. This game has a rather pleasing art style, even though it is a bit simplistic, and the color palette consists of mainly brown (with the exception of enemies).

When playing the game, I found it to be difficult, but not agonizingly frustrating when playing on the highest difficulty. There are three difficulty settings, which only affect how much health you have. If you die, you'll be forced to restart the enitre level. Forutnately, each stage is only around a minute long, but that doesn't stop them from being challenging.

You won't be forced to restart the entire game when you run out of lives though, because this game doesn't abide by that common and annoying feature. You're able to select any level you've unlocked once you've beaten them.
For its price, Gunman Clive offers a decent amount of stages: 16 standard levels and 4 boss fight stages.
While the game doesn't introduce any unique gimmicks I haven't seen in a platformer before, it's a polished game and certainly fun to play.

There are power ups too, which you can find from killing the many enemies you'll encounter, or just stumbling upon them on the ground. These are just different types of guns, and the occasional healing item.

One thing I highly appreciate about this game is that it retains the quirkiness of old video games. You'll have to fight pelicans, eat cake to restore your health and even travel to the moon near the end of the game.

It also carries a great amount of replayability. You can earn achievements for completing all of the levels quickly, or without suffering from any injuries. There are also two characters you can choose from: Clive, and the... one lady... (who plays much differently).

Most importantly, once you complete the game for the first time, you unlock duck mode. While being a duck, you can't attack, but get a jump boost to compensate. Boss levels don't appear here since ducks are extremely useless in combat situations. By the way, this is much more challenging than playing as anyone else, although it's not entirely apparent in the beginning areas.

It's basically a pacifist run of the game, except you can't change your mind half way through because you get annoyed at dying a lot.


Pros:
  • It's a retro platformer, but not a poorly made one. The graphics are also of a unique style.
  • It made me hate pelicans and ducks, but taught me that large beaks are a great place to store explosives.
  • There's a lot of replayability.
  • The level design is well thought out.
  • DUCK MODE

Cons:
  • The music tracks don't have a consistent volume.
  • The second boss (the train), makes all the other bosses in the game look stupid in comparison.
  • Nothing extremely unique is included here, with one exception.
  • No controller support.

Please understand that I am NOT the best reviewer for a platformer like "Gunman Clive". I haven't played platformers much since about 1991, when the platformers of the time, with their extreme precision jumps and shots, never varying even an iota, created a feeling of a Holy Grail Quest that lasted long into the night. Now the term "platformer" is VERY different, with things like FPS platformers. Say WHAT!?

Gunman Clive. First off, I paid 99 CENTS for it, mainly because of the art. That and the incongruous images on the Store Page. Cowboys and space flight?! Sure, why not when the possibilities of that concept are nearly endless. The idea of cowboys firing ray guns from hover platforms is hard to turn one's back on, especially with such AMAZING, yet simple, art. And then one starts to play....

The right hand moves, the left jumps and shoots (so far, at least on a keyboard.) That's all you need to know. Part of the reason I now avoid platformers is some physical issues. This is not a "jumping" game. THANK YOU! Yes, you jump, and some are quite precise, but not while shooting, and flipping. while cooking an omlet and reading Moby ♥♥♥♥. But that's not what this game's really about. The jumps are generally harder to MISS than to achieve. A player starts by searching for a kidnapped farmer's daughter, or some such, as either a cowboy named Gunman Clive. (Why not the more aliterative "Cowboy Clive" is a mystery) or a "Ms. Johnson", presumably the victim's mother. (VERY nice touch. I rather more enjoy the female character, with her dress-induced mincing steps, and her frequent floating to the ground, as result of said dress inflating.) A player has a choice of 3 skill levels. I haven't tried the hardest, but it seems as though the difference in the first two is mostly the amount of life one has. It's just you and you trusty 1,000 shooter. (Or some such.) You're attacked by cowboys, wolves, bunnies, ducks... Yes, ducks, too low to the ground to shoot. Usually. Sometimes shooting something results in "birthday cake" health, which shrinks in size and finally vanishes if you don't reach it in time. Or (naturally!) one of a selection of ray guns. Unfortunately, the ray gun is as hard to hold onto as it is (usually) valuable in battle.

It's true (at least for me) that some sections between save points must be played dozens of times. While this might be a dealbreaker in some games, not with Clive. Things change. A cowboy with a gun before now throws dynamites(sic), and he's GOOD! But maybe shooting him will produce a piece of cake or a ray gun. Nothing is ever exactly the same, but similar enough to encourage progress with most attemps. The differences are certainly enough to keep the game from getting boring, or excessively frustrating. The good news about achievements: GC has them. The bad news: you aren't likely to see any of them.

Hopefully this review will grow with time. I've not gotten far yet, primarily on middle skill level. If you'll excuse me, I really MUST get back to the game....

Remember those very old games you had on your old cellphone? Remember the one with the snake, the one with the airplane, the one with the spacecraft? Even though, of course, this game has graphics that are different from those cellphone games, it kinda reminds me of then. It kinda reminds me of hours and hours I spent in my first cellphone, draining the battery by playing these sort of games. It kinda reminds me of when there weren't any games with good graphics and people still had loads of fun. It kinda reminds me of youth. And anyone of us, every once in a while, like to remember our youth.

9/10

I only played first ten level when writing this review. Ok, my first impression is this game does have Megaman classic feeling (NES era) uses 3D with fancy pencil shading like valkriya chronicle use. Music is just acceptable. Level design is good. Grab it while it's less than a buck :)

Wow, Gunman Clive suprised me. Smooth controls, an enjoyable to the eye art and a pleasant soundtrack all in a game that only costs 2 euros. Replayability is not much but the "duck mode" you unlock after beating the main segment is rather interesting - shame it goes through the same levels - or else I would complete it. Totally recommend it though!

Its a very good game, for being made by one person its great but the biggest problem it suffers from is simply being unfair at parts. Another game like this is Ninja Gaiden of course Ninja Gaiden is alot more unfair but at parts you might being to rage abit. I feel abit more play testing may have helped this problem or maybe its supposed to be a learning experience but I feel if its the latter of the two a checkpoint would be nice

Even with the problem its worth it

Gunman Clive was a game that I had owned on my 3DS when it launched, however when the Steam Holiday Auction happened, I went to go see what games were very low on bids before the event closed for the day. I just happened to see this game that I never knew was on Steam.

Gunman Clive is an old-school style Run n' Gun game very similar to games such as Mega Man, set in the old west in the days of the cowboys. Your overall mission of the game is to save the maiden and defeat her kidnapper.

Pros:
+ Great soundtrack.
+ Solid gameplay (Easy to move around and fire your weapon).
+ Vast array of different weapons that drop from enemies (Reminds me of Contra).
+ Levels are short and provide a good challenge (Great for speed running, not great for people looking for a longer game).
+ Great visuals, hand drawn artstyle really fit the game.

Cons:
- More of a personal thought, I felt this game took too much inspiration from games like Mega Man, such as stage elements.
- Game is pretty dang short. The normal game itself is only about a hour long and even with other modes, 100% this game will only take you up four hours max. In the main game, there are only 20 levels.

Final Thoughts:
~ Game has great features such as its soundtrack, gameplay, and visuals. However, the game's only has one standout problem, the Length. However, for it's cheap price, this game is a must have. I can only hope Gunman Clive 2 comes to PC.

Final Score: 8.5/10

The game tries very hard to mimic Megaman, and it works at times. But the slippery and slow controls, much more slippery or slow than many of the Megaman games are, make the game very hard (or frustrating/cheap) to play. The levels are designed very well for a 2 dollar game, but its controls definitley need to be touched up.

Review in English and Spanish / Revisión en Inglés y Español

English:
A nice 2D Side-plataformer-Shooter with Simple but charming graphics, aceptable sound track and sounds and a enjoyable level of challenge. In some way, the gameplay makes me remember the gameplay of the olds Megaman from the NES.

The game is around 30 minutes long to clear the campaing, the duration can be prolonged if you want to try to do the achivments, speedruns, trying to clear the game in the less time or without taking damage.

Español:
Un bonito juego de plataformas en 2D con simple pero encantador apartado visual, aceptable apartado sonoro y un disfrutable nivel de reto. De cierta manera, las mècanicas del juego me hacen recordar los Megaman del NES.

La campaña del juego es aproximadamente de 30 minutos, la duración puede ser prolongada si quieres tratar de hacer los logros, speedruns, pasarte el juego en el menor tiempo posible o sin daño.

Gunman Clive c'est quoi ?
Un scénario original et un gameplay jamais vu.
Plus sérieusement, même si le scénario de la dulcinée (ou du prince, celon le choix du personnage) à sauver dans une ambiance Far-West n'est pas un pari risqué pour les devellopeurs, Le jeu sort de la masse grâce à ses bonnes idées !

[+] Prix très abordable (je l'ai eu pour moins de 2 euros perso).
[+] Graphismes originaux et accrocheurs, limites utiles pour discerner ennemis, zones sensibles des boss, etc...
[+] Musiques sympatoches, et variées.
[+] Aucun chargement, les animations sont très détaillées, aucune coupure ou cut-off.
[+] Choix entre plusieurs armes, pour s'adapter au style de jeu de chacun.
[+] Succès steam intéréssants améliorant la durée de vie du jeu.
[+] De nouvelles méchaniques de jeu à chaque niveau, j'ai toujours été agréablement surprit.
[+] ... Et des méchaniques de bases (perdre le fusil en prenant un coup par exemple) bien pensées.
[+] Le jeu présente des petites touches d'humour qui vous feront sans doute sourire.
[+] Les points commun au niveau du gameplay avec Megaman rendent nostalgique :p
[+] Addictif, sans doute grâce à ses morts et à ses retours au début du niveau omniprésents.

[-] Petit à petit le scénario et le thème des niveaux s'embrouillent, passent au second degrès gâchant le style (presque) sérieux du jeu, les 3 derniers niveaux sont vraiment du gâchis je trouve.
[-] Legers problèmes de caméra sur le 3ème boss par exemple.
[-] Trébucher sur un canard vous fait perdre autant de vie qu'une balle, d'autres incohérences du genre...
[-] Quelques "bugs", c'est rageant de voir les soins passer à travers les plateformes quand on en a besoin c:
[-] Souvent il faut mourir pour reconnaitre un obstacle, heureusement vous n'avez pas un nombre de vies défini.
[-] Vous jouez seulement pour les beaux yeux de votre âme soeur, pas de système de score, juste un chrono.
[-] Il suffit de tourner le dos pour voir les ennemis revenir, il ne sert donc à rien de zigouiller tous ces gibiers de potence.
[-] Certains effets sonores laissent à désirer (explosions par exemple).

Conclusion : Ce petit jeu, bien que d'une durée de vie (très) moyenne, offre au joueur une large palette de niveaux et même différents personnages. C'est un bijou indépendant au niveau des graphisme et présente une histoire colorée par ses touches d'humour réguilères. Même si il finit bizarement, vous ne regretterez pas l'aventure à petit prix proposée ici. Les fans de Megaman et autres jeux de tir 2D seront comblés je pense, à condition de ne pas s'étonner de recommencer un même niveau 10 fois. Un mot pour la fin ? Coin-coin.

Petit prix pour ce jeu d'action/plate-forme à l'aspect visuel original.Un peu court et pas trop difficile,il est plutôt destiné à être rejoué en speedrun.On y revient de temps en temps par sessions de 10 minutes.Du potentiel mais pas de génie.
