Outlaws + A Handful of Missions (1997)

About This Game

Welcome home, pardner! We’ve been waiting for you here in the town of Sanctuary. Take your boots off and sit a spell. Ex-Marshal James Anderson lived a quiet life with his wife and daughter. One black day that life was shattered by a fancy-dressed, greed driven land baron intent on plowing down his farm to make way for the railroad. Now Anderson’s driven by revenge, which he’ll exact in a spray of gunfire.

Get ready for the good, the bad, and the even worse. As Marshall James Anderson, you’ll face a horde of ornery, gun-slinging outlaws. You’ll shoot your way through a twisted plot of greed and revenge. You’ll arm yourself with firearms, as well as your wits. So go ahead, and make your day.


Outlaws is a first-person shooter. Players control the character as he utilizes several American Old West weapons and items, such as a rifle, shotgun, dynamite and revolver.

The player can activate the lantern inventory item to lighten dark areas, and use a shovel in specific areas to dig holes. In the lower difficulty levels, termed Good and Bad, the player is able to sustain several bullet wounds with no apparent ill effects.

In the hardest difficulty level, Ugly, the player’s resistance is reduced to one or two shots. This forces the player into a different style of play. Where on the easier difficulty levels a player might charge into a gunfight heedless of Anderson’s personal health, in Ugly mode, the player must use stealth and cover to win.


  • Highly stylized characters with distinct personalities and weapons.
  • Gameplay involving puzzle solving to tease the mind as well as the trigger finger.
  • Combines first-person Gun Slinging Action and Wild West Adventure in one game.
