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.

Other Aspects

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.

Jesse James. Billy the Kid. Doc Holliday. These are just a few of the many legends whose stories make up the rich tapestry of the American West. But one tale has never been told until now: that of Hero.

Wild West Ransom begins with Hero in a tight spot: ghosts have taken his family and girlfriend hostage, and are holding them ransom in exchange for as many gold coins as our brave champion can gather. So he sets out to collect the riches in the hopes of setting his loved ones free.

The game pays homage to a classic arcade offering in which players gobbled dots, avoided ghosts and ate fruit bonuses in an effort to rack up the highest score. Wild West Ransom also offers several power-ups to help Hero defeat the outlaws and Indians that pursue him. Dynamite destroys every enemy on the screen, for example, and vials containing green gas allow Hero to leave a noxious trail in his wake. Our champion should avoid bottles of whiskey, however.
