Fenimore Fillmore: The Westerner is a graphic adventure developed by Revistronic and published in Spain in late 2003 by Planeta DeAgostini. In 2004 it was published in many other countries, including USA, where it was titled Wanted: A Wild Western Adventure. Set in the wild west, it is the sequel of 3 Skulls of the Toltecs and it is in 3D, although keeping the traditional Point and Click gameplay and the comic style of the LucasArts productions. In May 2016 the game was reissued in both iOS and Android, distributed by Casual Brothers.
Fenimore Fillmore: The Westerner Wikipedia
One night, while riding alone through the meadows, Fenimore Fillmore comes to a farm that is being attacked by a bunch of gunmen, and our hero helps the humble farmers, called Bannister, who invites him to dinner and spend the night. Early in the morning, when Fenimore awakes, he discovers that his gun is missing, and, assuming that Billy Bannister, the kid of the farmers, has borrowed it, taking the revolver to the school. In his quest to retrieve his weapon, Fenimore is involved in a great adventure, helping the farmers in their struggle against the powerful rancher Starek, whose niece, Rhiannon, becomes Fenimore's great love.
The screen is divided in three parts, the main of which is the scenario that appears in widescreen.
On the top bar there is the inventory, to select the various objects shown. In the upper left is the main menu, represented by a sheriff star.
The bottom bar, in black, shows the running actions and dialogues subtitles.
The cursor appears as the sight of a gun, and when you hover over an object becomes a magnifying glass to look at it.
By clicking the right mouse button, the magnifying glass is transformed each in a sandwich (when you click on a character to talk to him) or hand (by clicking on objects to pick them up or use them).
To use an inventory item, you must click on it with the left mouse button and the object moves across the screen to use it.
Fenimore Fillmore moves through different locations in the game on his horse, which should feed carrots grown on farms of your friends, or you can buy in the village store.
In addition there are some action sequences in which our hero must use the gun. The gun is fired by pressing the left mouse button (if you can not move) or the right mouse button (if you can get around using the left mouse button).Fenimore Fillmore can not die, however, there are some puzzles that require skill accuracy and speed.
Fenimore must participate in a contest of insults which is an obvious tribute to duels in Monkey Island.
Throughout the game you have to collect money, which can be found in drawers and other places of the different scenarios, and you can get it also borrowing in the bank or sending telegrams from the train station.
In the shop you can buy newspapers interesting because they provide clues to progress in the game.
The iOS & Android version includes a help pack that, besides giving 50 game dollars, lets the player use the horse after giving him just one carrot, so the player avoids to feed his mount before each journey.
