If one is looking for a nice middle road between reading or watching movies about a fantastic, stream-driven march West and actually taking an expensive real-life excursion down to Arizona, USA or Alberta, Canada, finding yourself an enjoyable little online video game may fit the bill. Thankfully, that is what one finds in Bang! Howdy: "fast paced tactical strategy fun in a wacky Wild West world."
Some dramatis personae.
Perhaps they slightly overestimate how fast paced it is, since there are plenty of moments in the heat of battle where both you and your adversaries are waiting on their movement cycle recharging. Nevertheless, they haven't overestimated the fun of setting your dirgibiles and steam-tanks to rustle cattle and gun down clockwork outlaws. Unfortunately, like most of these sorts of games, you can log in for free, but if you want to really get anywhere or stock up your character, you're going to have to put out some hard cash.
If this sounds like your sort of thing, however, then head on over to Bang! Howdy.
