Wild West Ransom embraces all of the fun and excitement associated with Pac-Man while adding an intriguing twist. This game embraces a feel of the Old West alongside a rather interesting storyline. There are countless levels to challenge even the most seasoned of players and as should be expected, each is more challenging than the last. Although the full version requires a paid download, there is a free demonstration package available. This game is designed to be used with personal computers.
Overview and Basic Strategy
Wild West Ransom enables the player to take on the personality of a desperate hero. A family of ghosts have taken his family hostage and it is only through skilled gameplay that they will be released. Each "pellet" is actually money that is intended to pay the eventual ransom. So, there is a much more detailed story to be countered when compared to the original Pac-Man series.
Some similarities have carried over from classic Pac-Man. While the main intention is to gobble up pellets for points, there are also fruit bonuses associated with each level. The layouts will become progressively difficult and as should be expected, the more advanced ghosts are quick and very dangerous. The player must outwit his foes in order to ultimately emerge a winner.
