We first heard of Colt Canyon when it was announced by Headup Games back at the start of 2019. After a year, it’s here and if you’re looking for the opportunity to go looting and shooting through a wonderfully realised Wild West world, its release on Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC is something to seriously consider.
Available to purchase and download right now on Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC, Colt Canyon will see you going out to try and save your partner as you work your way through a rather delightful looking 2D pixel arted shooter, taking charge of a number of different characters in order to take down the most evil of bandits and rescue your friend.
Priced at £12.49 – at least on Xbox One as other on Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam it’s a little cheaper – Colt Canyon plays out as a rogue-like affair, pushing out random levels one after the other as you care for nothing less than shooting anything that moves. With your trusty revolver in hand, and an overriding objective focusing on saving your partner, expect to find a world full of clever ideas, hidden treasures and high replayability. It just so happens that the chance to satiate your bloodthirsty ways will come about too.
You won’t have to go about it alone too as Colt Canyon comes with full local cooperative options for those able to drag a friend or family member along for the ride.
