now rides again as a casual shooter, combining the Western themes
of the original hit with colorful hand-drawn graphics, an expanded
arsenal of weapons and smooth touchscreen controls.

Developed by Flying Wisdom Studios, the Wild West shooter puts
players in the boots of a well-armed bounty hunter, out to become

top spot on the leaderboards and prove to their friends just who
among them is the toughest gunslinger in the saloon.

fresh version of
Atari Outlaw for mobile devices,” said Jim Wilson,
