The Long Arm of the Law: ------------------------ Bandits made the wild west wild so dont be surprised if outlaws start attacking your town. Once you have built a jail, you can hire a Sheriff and deputies to keep the peace. If that doesnt work, once you have built a saloon, you can also hire gunslingers to clean out the riff-raff. A mix of deputies and gunslingers works best. And remember you dont have to provide food or housing for gunslingers. When you hear about a group of banditos camped outside of town, you can send out a posse to round them up. You fighters will automatically being firing at the bandits when they are in range.

Whiskey Youre the Devil: ------------------------- Eventually you will have to build a saloon in your peaceful town.

The saloon will keep your population happy, but you may end up with a few drunks wandering the streets. There are two ways to handle the town drunks. A deputy can toss him in the pokey until he sobers up. Or, once you have built a church, a kindhearted citizen can drag the drunk to church and he will reform. Hints, Tips and Tricks: ----------------------- - The gunslingers are better then deputies they are cheaper and stronger. - Although a gunslinger cost more then a deputy, they cost less then a sheriff. They are much better than a deputy at fighting bandits. Sheriffs are good for exploring your land since they are on a horse and travel much faster than anyone else. - Don't buy a lot of gunslingers, sheriffs or deputies or you will run out of food. - Spend your money wisely! Gunslingers may cost more than deputies, but their fighting skills will make up for it. Sheriffs cost more than gunslingers, but they are better at exploring the land since they are on horseback. So, buy gunslingers for defense, sheriffs for scouts and avoid deputies altogether! - As long as you Produce more food and water, gold and wood, than you USE, your town is OK and you can go about completing tasks without worrying about people starving or leaving (Click on the magnifying glass for the map, it shows your produce/use stats). It's critical! - In lightening bluff level, go northwest to find a hole with a treasure in it. In order to dig up the treasure, go northeast to find farmer tim and buy a rabbit from him. Drag the rabbit back to the hole and it will dig the treasure out for you. - When you get to paradise falls, find the gun slingers, they are up and left a bit they only want a bit of water so get them and locate them right of the railway track, bandits come but without them your Whole town will get blown away! also as soon as you can afford it locate more gun slinger and deputy's top right, (you cannot build here its a old fence place ) use the map and see red dots, they are the baddie so you can see where they come from and locate your heavies it stop them destroying your little town, oh and ps, its a fun adventure. - Don't invest in farms and such to feed your people if you don't need settlers to complete a level. Some levels only need a few combat personnel - let the rest of them starve.
