Hopalong: The Badlands is a virtual reality game that manages to combine violence and comedy to impressive effect. This is a Wild West style game where classic shootouts feature heavily, although a comic twist is provided by the fact that players ride around on a hobby horse rather than a real stead.
Time to Saddle Up
As the game progresses, players will have the chance to earn a number of different styles of hobby horses, which range from the classic stick horse all the way up to a hobby horse that has been created in the style of the legendary Pegasus. Because of the hobby horse, movements are limited to hopping and jumping, which takes the edge of the often rather gruesome action and provides plenty of laugh out loud moments.
Exploring a Barren Wasteland
Anyone who has ever played at cowboys and Indians as a child is sure to appreciate the nostalgic feeling of Hopalong: The Badlands. The shootouts are especially engaging thanks to the large collection of weapons that players have at their disposal, although because it is not possible to save the game players are forced to start right from the beginning each time that they load it up.
