It's ♥♥♥♥ing awful. Controls are annoying, game is slow, and just a generally headache-inducing experience.

Short, simple, stylized.

This game feels like a true retro game. For $2, you can't go wrong.

If I spent any more than $2 on this I would have been ♥♥♥♥ed.

With that said, the price point of $1.99 is right on the money. This game is pretty awesome. The only problem I had with it is the length. This game is SHORT! The animation is well done. The gameplay is reminiscent of the Megaman series. The audio while nice, would have been repetitive if the game were any longer. Also the Western style is a refreshing change of pace.

A short but sweet platformer that is well worth the cheap $2 price tag. I loved the charming cartoony style of the graphics, and they could go up to very high resolution. The soundtrack is very suiting as well. If you are a fan of Mega Man games, you'll love this wonderful platformer with a Wild West twist.

A short, Western-themed 2D platformer in the Mega Man vein. A solid little game which can beaten in around an hour. Levels are short but have no checkpoints so dying restarts the level. Not too much of a problem except for a couple of levels that accounted for over half of my deaths. Some of the level design is of the "you need to die once to know what to avoid next time" variety. There's also the feeling that the devs went down a platformer checklist when creating level features but some of the stuff they did is pretty cool.

Bosses are pretty standard, not great, not bad. Enemies drop gun power-ups and they're mostly in the Contra style. There's no up/down/diagonally shooting, though you can shot while crouched and jumping and this stops feeling restrictive with a couple of minutes of playing. Your health bar doesn't do a particularly good job of conveying how many hits you have until death, as you'll get killed at times with what looks like to be a decent chunk left. Game would've been better off just having some type of numeric representation of health, those this isn't too big of a deal. There are no game overs, you have infinite attempts at levels.

There are three playable characters, Clive, Ms. Johnson, and the duck. Ms. Johnson is clearly inspired by Peach from Mario 2 in how she controls, with the big difference between her and Clive is that she can float for a bit on her jumps. The duck cannot hurt enemies but can jump/fly and is more of a challenge run character.

All said, a decent little game with some replayability, though a bit on the boring/bland side at times but hey, it's 2 buck at full price. Worth picking up if you're looking for a Mega Man-esque platformer.

This is a short but enjoyable Mega Man-esque platformer with some humor and a little bit of variety. The hybrid 3D/drawn style is well done, along with the Old West styled music. Some levels and bosses can be hard until you learn their patterns, but the game is forgiving with infinite lives and saving. Three different characters are available along with legit achievements.

Cheap, short, fun, and EXTREMELY challenging. TOTALLY 100% worth 1.99. That is like the price of a burger, that you eat and it's gone forever. Gunman Clive however isn't edible and will stay with you forever. If you like unique artsyles, tight controls, great level design, and soundtrack look no further.

I got this game thinking it would be a short little game for me since I was bored at the time. But, of course, I was wrong. Games pretty bland in the visuals. Its pretty intersting the first few stages, but got old quick. I am well aware this was meant for 3DS and mobile devices, hence it being dull. Level design isn't that great considering I can barely make alot of the jumps in the first few stages. I didn't even finish the damn game becuase it was so dull and boring. Doubt that the gameplay gets any different in the later leveles. Plus, who cares about a generic story abouy the Mayot's Daughter being captured by bandits?

Gunman Clive is... interesting. It's a pretty good game, with a good artstyle, but you can totally beat the entire thing in like 20 minutes. Ultimately, I wouldn't recommend it nearly as much as Gunpoint, which is possibly my favorite Very Short Indie Action Game, but it also costs only a fifth of what Gunpoint does.

It gets a thumbs up, though not a "go out and buy this now" one.

what drew me to this game was the artstyle, very simplistic and appealing. you really cant say much about it since it was made to be a very simple, only that it was fairly enjoyable if not a bit repetative, but the visuals and smooth animations will be keep you captivated enough to not notice it. all in all if you're looking for a good little bit of entertainment, definately pick it up for 2 bucks, plus this also makes a great gift for friends.

This game has potential... but ends up being more frustrating than satisfying.
Pros:
- Cool art style
- Nice models and animations.
Cons:
- Movement is feels slow and unresponsive.
- No clear indication of what is and isnt a hazzard. Means lots of frustrating trial and error.
- Punishment for failure is repeating the entire level. Gets boring.

Very cool game. Takes some of the best features of Megaman and mixes in its own unique qualities that does not make it just a "megaman clone". Dying is part of the game and you will die alot, but because the controls are so tight and precise it will probably be your fault.
