And over at the Quandary website, reviewer Gordon Aplin gives us his very upbeat critique of the Adventure Company's Wanted: A Wild, Western Adventure (he gives it a 4 out of 5 star overall rating)...

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

The introduction sets the mood with a classic send up of the 'spaghetti' western genre with lots of close-ups of shifty eyes and tense hands hovering over guns. Fenimore Fillmore, all-round good guy, steps in and temporarily saves the day, then, Stella, the farmer's wife promptly tries to poison him by feeding him artichokes. Fortunately Fenimore survives, and just as fortunately he doesn't have the same aversion to carrots because carrots play a significant part in this game. In fact you won't get far without them as they are the only food (or fuel) that Feminore's horse will eat and you will have to grow some before you can leave the farm and keep a supply handy wherever you go. You will also have lots of other chores to do if you are to help the farmers of Starek City stand up against the cattle baron and win the heart of his feisty niece, Rhiannon.
