Enter the tall-and-twisted tale of a fierce gunslinger who gave it all up for his first love: pharmacology! The year is 1888. The setting is post-Gold Rush California. You play Freddy Pharkas, the town's beloved and meek pharmacist who must resume his gunslinging past to halt the reign of terror threatening all he holds dear. With pestles and pistols you defend your bucolic burg from one catastrophe after another: arson, stampedes, hired guns, riverboat gamblers...even terminal flatulence!
