Battle aliens in this space spaghetti western!
• WINNER of the Pocket Gamer Silver Award!
Billy Frontier is a space cowboy who's mission is to rid the galaxy of alien outlaws. This is the most diverse 3D game you'll find for iOS - it is a combination of adventure game and arcade game with a whole lot of blood spewing action in-between!
You'll test your reflexes in Duels, see if you can outrun a stampeding herd of Kanga-Cows (half kangaroo, half cow), hunt down alien bandits in gun battles, and blast catapulted critters out of the sky in the Shooting Gallery!
This is a great game that pays homage to the spaghetti western genre!
Long overdue update to fix tons of problems running on newer devices like the iPhone X.
Ratings and Reviews
Fun, entertaining, great graphics and music
This is definitely one of my favorite games. The graphics are very good, only a slight choppiness at times. Not really a huge deal. You are Billy Frontier and you have to clear out the bad guys from town. There are not a tremendous number of levels. There are 8 missions. Two shootouts which are the best part of the game. You march into town and shoot at the bad guys by tapping the screen. You can shoot crates to reveal power ups or more bullets.
There are two Target Practice levels where you simply shoot at objects and characters from the game that are thrown in the air. Fun, but not a huge plus.
Two missions are shootouts. In these you are presented with a random series of triangles and squares which you must press the correct shape in the correct sequence in a limited time. (think left, left right, right, left) Do this and you win the shootout. This seems a bit odd to me, but entertaining.
Next, there are two stampedes which you are trying to beat the stampede to the finish line. Do this by running over the hot tamale to speed up, but avoid the rocks along the way.
All together I really do enjoy the game. It is a bit limited as far as number of levels, but I find myself playing over and over - So it is a four star game to me. Excellent music, effects and graphics.
This game was a lot of fun...
...in ~2008 when I was 12 playing it on my brand new iPod touch on the school bus every morning (when I wasn't showing off the beer app you "drank" to friends). It didn't age very well, mostly just because of how mobile games have evolved/improved; Billy Frontier feels slow and because of how repetitive most of the gameplay is, incomplete. I didn't know that at 12'since I think this was the first app I ever downloaded- I searched my own name first (Billy) + immediately downloaded this game. I didn't stop playing each morning on the bus until I finally beat it a few weeks later.
I'm still giving it a 5/5 because it definitely was a 5/5 for it's time even if now it only serves as a time capsule to show how mobile gaming has progressed (or regressed, depending on the game)in the past 15 years. This is less of a review + more of a eulogy for one of the OG mobile games that went beyond snake/Pong or mahjong/chess
I use to love this game now crashes all the time
I have a iPhone X and the game will load and once you complete the dual mode section where the cowboy shoots the aliens it crashes as soon as the cowboy shoots so frustrating. This use to be a awesome game. Please fix this crash and I will change my rating . It only crashes after the cowboy wins and takes the first shot then crashes. I rebooted my phone does not make difference it still crashes. Fix it.
