Gunman Clive is a stunning and underappriciated game that needs more fame! Its a quite hard platformer with bad controls that I personally changed to the good old W,A,S,D! Apart from that the music and visuals throughout the game are stunning and never get old! For the platform finatics out there and new gamers its certainly a must buy!

Pretty fun game, especially for the price. Take elements from old school mega man, and super mario bros., throw in a few different guns and you've got a winner. Easy to play, reasonably challenging, and the graphics are pretty cool too. I'd put this in the casual category for sure, considering how it's set up. You can quit at any time and it saves at the level you left off. If you're looking for something cheap, and worth the little amount of money, this game is for you.

Gunman Clive is a very unique, super polished, platformer. Taking place in the old west, you embark on a rescue mission. There isn't much of a story but that doesn't matter. This highly-stylized adventure is not only beautiful but a blast to play. It may take a lot of inspiration from classic platformers but the game is a whole new twist on the genre that is definitely worth checking out.

At its core, the gameplay is quite simple. Dodge enemy bullets, return fire, and navigate the various obstacles in your way. Your reflexes will be tested as the action is fast. This helps simulate the feeling of being stuck in the middle of the shoot-outs you see in a classic western. When you're not exchanging fire there a plenty of platforming segments as you jump around various moving objects. The tight controls leave no need for guess work. You'll feel great with the mobility of your character feeling very fluid and natural.

You can choose to play as Clive or Ms.Johnson, the other of which will be kidnapped. There isn't too much of a difference between the two, Clive can move a little faster and Ms.Johnson can float for a bit. After beating the game a third character is unlocked that plays dramatically different. As you proceed on this rescue mission you pass through several different environments. These include the desert, the woods, a cave, and beyond. Each area provides new, varied, obstacles and enemies that will try to slow you down.

One of the neatest parts of this experience is the artwork. The backgrounds and characters look like they popped right out of a stretch book. As the lines shift and dance on screen it really feels like a drawing has come to life. The arrangement of the soundtrack is also superb. Clearly who ever composed the music for this game knew exactly how to set up a wonderful atmosphere. As you play through the levels, even if you die, the music keeps playing. This really helps keep you in the game and ready to face the challenges set before you.

I absolutely adore this game. From the beautiful artwork, to the smooth platforming, everything about this game fits perfectly. If you're a fan of old-school platformers you need to play Gunman Clive. Even those who don't play this genre as much can enjoy this game for its atmosphere. I'm still having fun in my second play-through and I'm really looking forward to playing the sequel. So put on your cowboy hat and charge in guns blazing.

This is a really short game--20 levels with a few additional modes and challenges, but it's pretty fun. Imagine original Megaman mechanics (sans chargeshot) meets Western minimalist art-styles. Near the end you also get some cool VVVVV-like platforming, but then it's over too soon! Considering the price, though, well worth a play.

Spiel:

Ein Sidescroller Western Action Game im Stile von MegaMan und Co.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Einzelspieler:

Man entweder einen Cowboy Clive, eine Lady oder eine Ente (die nach dem durchspielen freigeschaltet wird). Der Cowboy Clive hat eine Standard Steuerung, die Lady kann alles was Clive kann aber kann nach einem Sprung noch etwas Schweben und die Ente hat keine Waffen und kann Fliegen bzw. flattern.
Man läuft von links nach rechts und schiesst die Gegner aber auftauchen, ab und zu lassen die Gegner dann neue Waffen und Energie fallen um sich aufzubessern. Nach einer gewissen Anzahl an Leveln erwartet einen dann ein Boss um die nächsten Level freizuschalteten.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Grafik:

Die Grafik und das Design ist wirklich sehr passen zum Western Spiel.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Musik:

Die Musik ist ganz OK, zum Anfang sehr passen aber manchmal wirkt es sehr unpassend.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Steuerung:

Die Steuerung Ok, der Charakter steuert sich sehr schwammig was es nicht gerade einfacher macht.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Pro/Contra:

+ schöne Idee
+ Teilweise sehr gute Musik
+ unterschiedliche Schwierigkeitsgrade
- schwammig Steuerung
- wenig Action

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Fazit:

Ich fand die Idee sehr Cool habe aber etwas zu viel erwartet. Der Schwierigkeitsgrad ist wirklich hoch, aber auf Einfach bin ich gut durchgekommen. Es hat schon sehr abwechslungsreich Level aber zum Ende wird es wirklich etwas nervig und teilweise passt es einfach gar nicht rein (wie an Wänden und Decken laufen).
Es ist sicherlich für MegaMan Fans eher was als wie für mich der MegaMan nie grossartig gespielt hat. Mit Clive braucht man circa 1 Stunde also circa 3 Stunden mit allen Charakteren was ganz OK ist. Wer also auf so etwas steht wird hier sicherlich seinen Spass haben, aber für mich war es nichts.

Gunman Clive is a simple, engaging game with some unique features. The handrawn illustations are brilliant and the game has simple yet interesting puzzles that feature a new mechanic in nearly every level. The boss battles are fun and has good replayability with a small selection of different characters.

7/10 A fun short game with good visuals, gameplay mechanics and replayability.

Bought it and loved it on 3DS, and now I can love it on PC.

Let's get straight to the positives.

+Massive replay potential.
+Amazing style.
+Pretty lengthy for the asking price, and also, noted above, there's reasons to play the game 3 or 4 times through.
+Great controls and handling, though some may be turned off by the weightless feel of the jumping (but I was right at home here, having played similar games all my life).

And now, the (very) few cons.

-Could have used a bit more variety when it comes to enemies and level backgrounds.
-Is a bit too easy unless you are going for perfectionist runs (trust me, this is fixed in the second one, which is a hell of a lot harder).

Overall, Gunman Clive is pure amazing. It's short, sweet, looks great, plays greater, and costs as much as a soda at a store. Can't beat that at all.

9/10 - Must Own

I found the controls/gameplay very clunky and slow, and hence there is not a lot of room for clever, fast strategizing. It's pretty much either stand and wait until enemies aren't facing you, or run(shamble) in all guns blazing and hope for best. It lacks the smoothness and responsiveness that I need in a platformer for me to enjoy it or praise it.

However, it has a wonderful catchy soundtrack, and beautifully crafted design style.
If you like a slow paced, yet awkwardly cute little platformer, with a quirky sense of humor, and fun atmosphere, this is a good game for you. Especially for the generous price.

What I've learned over the years is that how a game feels is key to its success. People will put up with a stiff or janky game for all sorts of reasons, but you generally don't have to coax them into sticking with a game that simply feels right. Gunman Clive is just such a game, one that is familiar and welcoming from the moment you start it, so much so that you won't mind when it's all over so soon.

You play as the aforementioned Gunman Clive in a platforming quest to save his sweetheart... or vice-versa, if you're feeling particularly progressive. Clive can take a few more hits but Ms. Johnson can float SMB2-princess-style, which is always a pleasure in a platformer. No matter the gender you'll be armed with a trusty pistol that can lay down three shots on the screen at a time. Most enemies can be dispatched with one or two shots, and sometimes drop additional weapons like spread shots, explosive bullets, and piercing beams.

There are sixteen levels spread across four areas, with each level serving as a one- to two-minute scene. Some will take you some practice, especially once they start adding gimmicks like moving platforms, vanishing platforms, fans, zappers, and more. The further in you get, the more the levels will remind you of classic Mega Man gauntlets, which seem to be the chief inspiration for the game. The music follows suit, a collection of gentle, twangy riffs on 8-bit-era tracks. The graphics are even more beautiful in motion, animated with a simple, sketchy flair more distinct than most platformers manage.

Gunman Clive won't last you too long on a single playthrough, but there's a hilarious third character and a hard mode that lives up to its name to tackle once you beat it. Considering how charming, challenging, and just plain fun it is, you really can't pass this one up. It's Mega Man platforming with Contra weapons that looks great, sounds great, and controls like a dream. What's not to love?

Ich muss wirklich eingestehen: Ich bin ultra scheiße in dem Spiel und hatte trotzdem Spaß gemischt mit Aggressionen. Vorab möchte ich sagen, dass es eine Art MegaMan mit Cowboys ist und wer nicht mit MegaMan vertraut ist (so wie ich), hat nicht wirklich eine Chance in dem Spiel. Trotzdem macht es Spaß :). Das Spiel ist im Großen und Ganzen sehr kurz und man kann wenn man gut ist innerhalb von 1 Minute ein Level schaffen. Es gibt verschiedene Charaktere die sich von den Stärken her auch voneinander unterscheiden. Die Level sind alle unterschiedlich und die Bosskämpfe sehr herausfordernd. Da das Spiel sehr billig ist, hat es ein sehr gutes Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis.

This game is pretty nice. It will remind you of a lot of old classic shooters such as Megaman as well as Contra. Think Megaman in western setting. The game itself is pretty short takes around one and a half hour to beat in normal mode. There's boss fights every 5 rounds and total of 4 bosses. 20 stages and they're not that long. Everytime you die you start at the beginning of the stage.

Graphics - This sort of has a design which looks like hand drawn (not sure if it actually is). The game looks beautiful in my opinion and the art style suits it as well. The few number of colors used really make the artstye unique and looks very cool imo.


Music/Sound - This game has VERY nice music, when i say nice i mean i have literally taken the .ogg files from the games directory and put in on my phone to listen to. I was addicted to the soundtrack.

Gameplay - Fun gameplay which can be challenging. All you do is go through the stage and kill the cowboys, ducks(lol?), aliens with your handy pistol. There's some frustrating platforming as well. You can also get upgrades to your gun (think contra), there's a 3 way spread, a bigger buller which is slower but does more damage, there's even laser gun as well as a heat seeking gun. You have a life bar which lets you take around 4-5 hits before you die. Every 5 levels you get a boss fight which are pretty interesting and require you to learn their patterns to kill them.

Overall i'd recomend this game, $2, seriously you can't even get soda for that now a days.

This game deserves to be purchased for so many reasons. For one it's only $2. Which is insane.
Two, it has a great replayability. There are three characters with different play styles that really change the way the game is played so beat it then rebeat it again.
Three, the gameplay is perfect. No trouble with the controls, the power ups are great, and the bosses are fun and challenging.
Four, the art style is beautiful. It's a western and the coloring and penciled look applies so well.
Really if you like action platformers buy this. Full price. Don't even wait for a sale.

When I first found this game on Steam and watched the trailers I like it a lot. I liked platformers ever since I was kid. But I barely remember how hard some of them are and could take up to a week to master because there were not saves in most of them. But back onto Gunman Clive. I was collecting tons of platformers in my wishlist just in time for another Steam sale. So when I rushed to buy it but didn't have a change to played until now. After a long coding session I decided that it was time for some relaxing platforming.

I fired up the game and was enjoying the art style and music and that simplicity of the game. All seem perfectly set up for a nice gaming evening. But... You know that kind of games that you liked when you watched the trailer but hate after playing for 5 minutes. At this point you probably think that it was exactly the kind of game. And you are right. Controls seemed sluggish, game unreasonably hard even on easy and I started thinking about requesting a refund. When I was ready to quit it something stayed my hand. I asked myself what kind of gamer am I to quit the game without giving it a proper try. So I went back to main menu, selected my save on normal and began my path to liking this game.

That path wasn't easy at all especially considering that I didn’t play games let alone platformers for 2 years. So I started mastering the controls first which looked like a task close to impossible at first actually turned out a lot easier after having some practice. With that out of the way I started training to shoot properly. After that it was time for jumping and shooting at the same time. And that aspect of game mechanics was crucial for having fun in this game. Once I became good at it the game became much more likable but didn't become relaxing. And you know what it probably won't anytime soon if at all. Another awesome mechanics that made the game fun was moving while shooting in opposite direction. And it becomes more and more important once you get into a boss fight. Even though I thought I was pretty good at playing this game when I met the first boss it almost made me hate the game again. But as it's said "Don't hate the game, hate the player" I couldn't be more true with this one. I did however feel that boss was to powerful for the first encounter and he had one trick up his sleeve that I couldn't overcome. After some additional training and to be honest, luck I was done with him.
After the fight I felt like a changed man. Levels felt more and more adequate and game in general became more likeable. Levels felt enjoyable and almost relaxing but I knew that I will relax when I complete the game.

Then I met the second boss. And it was one hell of a fight. I stood my ground, fought like a man, fought intelligently. Instead of trying to do as much damage as fast as possible I was tried to live longer and do consistent damage. And this time I rarely suffered from rage-inducing deaths and I felt like I was failing rather than the boss being overpowered. Afterwards I was greeted with some platforming challenger more than with enemies. But then I realized that it was very late and decided that it was enough for the day.

While I was slowly walking towards the computer to turn it off I felt satisfied, I knew there are more challenges ahead and I liked the game. I was rather hard to get to that point but I made it but it was totally worth it. So would I recommend it? Yes, I would but with few key points in mind. First and foremost you need a controller. I didn't try it with keyboard but when I tried other platformers it was terrible. And the question what kind of gamer are you? if you're more casual then it would probably leave you hating it for being too hard and not fun. But if you're more hardcore than casual and can endure that kind of challenge then go and grab it.

Gunman Clive ist ein Spiel zum verlieben.
Ich hatte es damals im Debut Bundle von Indieroyale gekauft und nach den ersten paar Sekunden hatte ich mich in das Spiel verliebt und die Liebe hielt leider nicht sonderlich lang an. Warum? Weil das Spiel klein ist. Dieses Spiel kann man in ~30 Minuten durchspielen und wenn man es nochmal erneut spielt, verliebt man sich einfach ein weiteres mal.
Aber das soll nicht heißen, dass dieses Spiel immer nur das selbe ist. Es gibt 3 verschiedene Schwierigkeitsmodi (die nur die Lebensenergie von einem unterschiedlich hoch / niedrig machen), 2 unterschiedliche Charaktere bzw einen 3., den man bekommt, wenn man das Spiel durchgespielt hat. Die 3 Charaktere unterscheiden sich zudem allesamt leicht bis stark.
Das was das Spiel so verlixt suechtig machend macht sind die kurzen, knackigen Level die sich zum Teil immer wieder neu erfinden und da stoert es wirklich gar nicht, dass es gerade mal 20 Stages gibt die man alle in ~1 Minute schaffen kann.
Das Herzstueck in dem Spiel sind letztendlich die zum Teil heftigen Bosskaempfe! Alle haben ein Chema was immer unterschiedlich ist, es heißt einfach nur letztendlich wissen wie man ausweichen muss aber trotzdem fordernt.

Einen kleinen Kritikpunkt habe ich hier aber trotzdem:
Man wird hier nie wirklich bestraft fuer's sterben. Das soll heißen, dass man beim sterben nur zum Anfang einer Stage gesetzt wird und kein Leben verliert und das nicht mal beim hoechsten Schwierigkeitsgrad. Da geht hier leider ein wenig das Oldschool Jump'n'Run Feeling floeten.

Mit dem Spiel hat man zwischen 2 - 5 Stunden Spaß, denn dann hat man alle Achievements GARANTIERT geschafft. Trotzdem hat das Spiel selbst dannach noch einen Wiederspielwert, da man immer wieder seine Zeiten verbessern kann.

Habe es soeben das erste Mal durchgespielt.

Euch erwarten 20 teils sehr fordernde, ansonsten jedoch sehr kurze Level mit vier Boss fights. Der artstyle ist wirklich etwas ganz besonderes, jedoch sind die Inspirationsquellen stets fett aufgedruckt: Mega Man, Super Mario (Galaxy), Donkey Kong (Country) und Space Impact. Das macht das Spiel auf keinen Fall schlecht, lässt einen sogar freudig schmunzeln.

In unter einer Stunde ist der erste Spaß schon vorbei, Motivation zum mehrfachen durchspielen gibt es nicht sehr viel, für 1,99€ ist das Spiel jedoch wirklich klasse und übertrifft das Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis sowieso schon lange in ganz besonderem Maße. Am meisten beeindruckte mich am Spiel übrigens die wirklich wunderschöne musikalische Untermalung. ♪

Unbedingt mal spielen! 8/10

Here's a review after finishing the game with both the main characters and trying the third, hidden one.

TL:DR? Challenging 20 levels of platforming with wild west style. Like Megaman, if you're familiar with those.

Gunman Clive is a short but challenging platformer of minimalistic but nevertheless adequate graphics. There are three playable characters, one of which you have to unlock, each with their special skills. There are about 20 levels, every 5th of which is a boss battle. They take you through the wild west and the story hilariously hyperboles towards the end.

Levels are sidescrolling action that last only a minute or so per stage. However, they're also quite challenging, requiring multiple tries to get through. Bosses have anywhere from 2 to 4 different attack types. Challenge rises from the low health of the player who can take only two hits before dying (on Hard difficulty) and also from death falls and insta-kill spikes of certain levels. Obviously, once you get familiar with the game it becomes a lot easier to avoid enemies and go through the previously difficult spots. Warning though if you're easily irritated, you might get momentarily frustrated with some spots.

After a while the game begins to resemble very much the Megaman games of NES. While you have infinite ammo, your rate of fire is limited by your weapon. Many features of the levels from enemies to obstacles also resemble Megaman, from moving platforms to appearing and disappearing blocks to alternating gravity and wind machines. Admittedly, these features are part of virtually any decent platformer, which this one certainly is. There are also a couple of special levels with slightly different moving capabilities akin to Gradius (continuosly moving, sidescrolling shooter) and just about any sidescroller with rideable minecarts.

I hope I'm not spoiling too much if I reveal that the third character is unlocked after finishing the game first and is a duck that can't attack, only fly short distances. This game mode is also a bit more difficult because of these limitations. Because of this there are also no bosses in this mode for obvious reasons and it is basically a different game altogether. This mode is very challenging to complete perfectly, adding several hours of play time to the game.

For such a small price this is a good platformer, maybe even too cheap for its content, for now it's like on a permanent discount. I hear it has been first released on 3DS, now rereleased on Steam with achievements. These are of the speed-run, no-damage run types with different characters. They can be quite difficult, though you can do the no-damage and speed-runs separately. The most difficult one is the one requiring completion of the game without dying. There are two versions of this achievement, one for the initial characters and another, probably more difficult one for the duck. I have yet to get all the achievements.

Some people seem to have become upset because of some "misogynistic content". Myself, I found this concern hilarious. You can play either as the guy or the girl and save the other one. This is the incentive for the story. It isn't very original but the story isn't exactly the reason to play this game: it works splendidly for what it is.

You could buy Gunman Clive or a large soda and trust me this game is much better than a large soda.

Originally available on the 3DS as well as the iOS and Android, Gunman Clive is now (finally) available through Steam. Gunman Clive was a nice short little platformer with (what I thought) were some pretty smooth/minimalistic visuals and a not-to-shabby soundtrack (I'll be honest, it wasn't really my taste - but that doesn't mean I didn't like it by any means). The gameplay itself was pretty fun - the game's comprised of a total of 20 levels (4 of which are boss levels), 3 unlockable characters followed by a moderately high replay value; the game itself is also slightly challenging if you're trying to go for speed-runs or higher difficulty settings. For a full price of $2, this game was a pretty fun time-filler (took me about 20-30 minutes to complete it the first time around, but I'm not stopping there). Methinks you'd like this game if you are at least somewhat a fan of platformers or if you ever liked the first Megaman games (as it shows many similarities between the 2).

My rating - 9.3/10. Definitely consider getting it. Heck, think about it even if you don't like platformers, especially since it's so fracking cheap.

Also, if you're on Windows you may want to try to get a free demo off of Desura. They also have a Mac-friendly version there as well.
I've tried looking for demos compatible with both Mac and Linux, but I can't seem to find anything.... (I believe Linux is generally unsupported in in this case, but don't quote me on that.)

[Edit]: It seems the review is getting some negative feedback for one reason or another... What do you think I can do/mention to help make this a more helpful review for others?

Charming coloring book visuals with all the simplicity of an early NES game. Specifically, it plays like Megaman, with some enemies' functions and patterns lifted right out of it, despite the wild west setting. All you do is run, shoot sideways, jump, and climb ladders. Bosses are pretty strait forward with highlighted weak spots and life meters. 90% of the audio is the subtle soundtrack, while the effects are extremely soft. A good standard $2 price tag on this one.

There's not much more one can say about Gunman Clive other than that it's a fairly simple, two-button arcade-length action platformer with a fun little western presentation. There's a pretty good variety in terms of enemy designs, stage gimmicks and layouts, and boss enemies, and a decent selection of randomly dropped gun power-ups from enemies to mix things up here and there. Replay value lies solely in the Steam Achievements and personal satisfaction if that's your thing, and are aimed more toward hardcore goals such as finishing stages under par-times, without dying, and under certain circumstances which can only be unlocked by completing the game once.

What Gunman Clive presents is utterly simple, but it's executed well enough to bet that you'll have a pretty good time with it if you're into older-school games like Contra and Mega Man. You could really do a lot worse for the couple bucks this one's going for.
