Game Information

Available on:PCApr 21, 2016

Developer: Bandit-1

Publisher: Surprise Attack

Genre: Action

Based on a true story, Western Press is the most historically accurate frontier dueling game available for PC and Mac. Probably. Competing in tournaments of up to 16 players (or bots), duelists both online and off will face each other in rapid fire, 1v1 sprints to finally settle who can press a random string of ten buttons the fastest.

Western Press makes for a brilliant and inexpensive party game. Its basic nature means you're not going to get much out of it when played on your own, whether online or offline, but with friends it's an absolute riot.

There's one great and one awful thing about Western Press, and both can be summed up in one word: simplicity.
