Cactus Cowboy is a small top-down-shooter. You have to fight against evil enemies, collect powerful upgrades and fight a terrifying boss. Can you survive the most waves of enemies and reach the highest score?

I developed this game in my free time during the last 6 months. I'm quite happy with the controls and the look and feel of the game. The game currently doesn't provide that much content yet, but I may update the game at some point.

Special thanks to Sandro Erhardt for making the awesome soundtrack. I also want to thank all of my friends that continuously test my games and always offer me support and great motivation!

Thank you for your feedback and support!

This game feels so good! Good feeling, lovely graphics, nice ideas! Love it :) Greetings from switzerland.

Thank you very much! :D

If you could make the 6 round shotgun a little less random add some more story this game would be great

I agree with you, many of my friends told me the shotgun has to much spread.

I had some thoughts about a story, but decided to leave this game as a prototype for now. Maybe I will pick it up again at some point!

Thank you for your feedback! :)

REALLY COOL! Fun to play.  I especially like the minecart function, the dashing and the revolver barrel(?) to show your ammo. 

Some constructive criticism (from my point of view): Losing health is not visible enough, I would like some additional effect to it, maybe a red vignette or something .  Add icons next to the health, dash and reload bar to avoid confusion. 

Oh yeah, a more visual damage effect for the player would be nice. Thank you for your feedback! :D
