remember "Western Bar"? :)

do you remember the old-school handheld Casio game - Western Bar? :) i certainly do! that was the "IT" game when i was in primary school!

i never had one of those, so i always had to try to get into the good books of those few classmates who had it, then wait patiently for others to finish their turn before i could lay my hands on it.

so you can imagine how thrilled i was to find an iPhone version of the same game on the app store! granted it's not free.. but for that priceless reminiscence and nostalgia (and the uncontrollable odd grin on my face when i played it), it's definitely worth the US$0.99 price tag! LOL.
i love that oh-so-familiar tune and sounds they put on the iPhone game too...
it's not as easy to manoeuver your way on the touch screen (round rubber buttons are still more fun!).. but for good ol' times, i can live with it :D

if you don't have the iPhone or iPod Touch, try the online remake of it - Drunken Sherriff instead.
