The name pretty much says it all: In Buffalo Bill's Rodeo Games, you are a young man who is part of Buffalo Bill's travelling rodeo act, which consists of various Wild West tricks and feats. You have to put together an act of your own, consisting of any or all of six different stunts: sharpshooting, knife throwing, calf roping, calf wrestling, bronco riding and stagecoach rescues.
Each game is set up in a classic arcade format, and you have to get the highest score possible using the arrow keys and spacebar. There is no real object, just to get the highest score.
The game is very fun, and I especially like the knife throwing game (you'll see what I mean). The soundtrack has a wide variety of light and bouncy tunes to entertain you with. Like all old DOS games, the graphics are nothing special but do the trick well enough, and the very colorful and vibrant pictures are an added plus.
As for compatibility, the game works wonderfully with DOSBox but can also be run under Windows, as long as you are willing to give up good sound.
All in all, Buffalo Bill's Rodeo Games deserves a rating of 4, because it is fun and engaging, and very true to the Wild West atmosphere. Go ahead, give it a try!
Dear Abandonia visitors: We are a small team that runs one of the largest DOS Games websites in the world. We have only 3 members of staff, but serve 450,000 users and have outgoing costs like any other top site for example: our servers, power, rent, programs, and staff. Abandonia is something special. It is a library of old games for you to download. It is like an old gaming arcade with all the old games in their original format. Abandonia is a place where you can find great old games and have fun four hours and years. To protect our independence, we are dependent of our friends using the site. We run on donations averaging around 6 USD (5 Euro). If everyone reading this gave the price of a cup of coffee, our fundraiser would be made easier. If Abandonia is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online for another year. Please help us forget fundraising and get back to Abandonia.
