Gunman Clive is priced at $1.99 in Google Play, and is normally priced at $1.99 in the Amazon Appstore. As we've noted before, there are sometimes differences in pricing between the two marketplaces.

Gunman Clive is described as follows:
The west is overrun by thugs and outlaws. A group of bandits have kidnapped Mayor Johnson's daughter and are spreading havoc across the land. Only Gunman Clive can bring order to the west and save the girl. Gunman Clive is an old-school, side-scrolling platform game set in the old West with full 3D graphics and a unique art style.

Shoot 'em Up

Navigate Gunman Clive through the dangerous Wild West using three controls. Directional arrows are located at the bottom left-hand side of your screen. Jump and Shoot buttons are located on the lower right-hand side. Move Clive through a number of obstacles while dodging bullets and taking down the outlaws.

Rowdy Bandits

Jump and shoot your way across 16 diverse and challenging levels against a variety of outlaws--from your run-of-the-mill gunman to their powerful bosses. The unique sepia sketch-shaded graphics pull gamers into the rough and rowdy ways of the original Wild West. Be careful out there.
Gunman Clive is rated at 4.8 stars in Google Play. It is rated at 4.2 stars in the Amazon Appstore.

That 4.8 star Google Play rating isn't one made with a few ratings. Instead, the app has 215 ratings and still has a 4.8 stars average. With that, plus the Amazon Appstore 4.2 star rating, there's no question: "buy" this while it is free.

There is also a version by the same developer in the iOS App Store. That version is also priced at $1.99 and has a 4.5 star rating for the current version and 4.5 stars overall.
