Konami’s wild west-themed sidescroller had a lot of character and charm, which overcame the repetitive gameplay long enough for it to be considered a classic. Bury me with my money, etc. I just felt bad for the guys who were just minding their own business on a roof that got gunned down all the time.

I liked Sunset Riders just fine but it wasn’t as good as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles or my much-beloved The Simpsons Arcade in my eyes. What can I say, I’m just a sucker for a license.

I heard a rumour once that Sunset Riders was going to be included in Microsoft’s Game Room, but that’s only because I walked by the office where it was being made onetime and saw it up and running. Then again I saw a lot of unreleased games for that platform that never came out for one reason or another. Oh well!
