    Really good conversion of a classic. I absolutely recommend it for that price.
    The world wide highscores are fun too.

    Look at the video. Westbang is much better.Professional presentation,story,bonuses... .
     
  9. I agree with that...at 59p u really cant go wrong...
    And all of us that are old enough to remember the original speccy game and those not so old that remember the master system game will love this and it'll bring back the memories like it did for me...good fun all round...
    And i need to get better as im slipping down the leaderboards and only top 5 now in all levels...
    Better polish my gun and try and not shoot any old grannies holding bags of dosh;)

    This is a great game and at 99 cents you can't beat it. I really hope we see more Western games (Call of Juarez or Red Dead Redemption in some form on the app store? Yes please!).

    Just picked this up as well, what an excellent game. Bought Archibald's Adventures too on the back of this one from these developers being so good.

    Like others say, you don't get much these days for 59p and this is a lot of fun.

    Lite version of Westbang was approved today, so you can try the casual difficulty mode of the game now:
    http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=318957688&mt=8

    Note for existing Westbang players with OS 3.0, if music and sound is not playing properly under 3.0, set sound and music volumes to minimum (not "mute"), that should fix the issue for now until 1.1 update of the game is available (it was sent to apple two weeks ago, so I hope it will get available soon).

    This is a cute looking game. These nice reviews might encourage me to pick it up once I have the cash, what with all this empty space on my two clean pages! :)

    This game is a ton of fun, but totally unplayable on the 3GS. The sound is all off on the new phone.

    We are aware of this sound problem under OS 3.0 and we have sent Westbang 1.1 update to apple 20 days ago and still waiting to be approved :/

    There is simple workaround for this problem until 1.1 is released, in the options menu lower music and sound volume to minimum (but not to mute). This reduces the static and makes the sounds to play at normal level.

    As I see it is a common problem with Apple (very late approvals) right now -- probably a hit from the 3.0 release and latest expo. Let's just all hope Apple will improve the approval process soon (or I'm the only one who have hope for that right now?).

    Cheers,

    Definitely, but it seems only updates are delayed, new releases was fine...I'm a little concerned for approval times that await us at the end of the year...anyway westbang 1.1 was just approved, after 25 days, our "record" :) So anybody with 3.0 or 3gs can update now to fix the sound and music issues.
