Westbang by Rake in the Grass is out (.99$).

Westbang from Rake in the Grass is available for .99$!

AppStore url:
http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=316452883&mt=8

I'm quite amazed by the level of polish for this not so complex title (basically you just shoot the bad guys when they draw and try not to shoot bank customers). Congrats to the devs!

Cheers,
f.

Really good conversion of a classic. I absolutely recommend it for that price.
The world wide highscores are fun too.

This is a great game and at 99 cents you can't beat it. I really hope we see more Western games (Call of Juarez or Red Dead Redemption in some form on the app store? Yes please!).
