Al Lowe, author of Leisure Suit Larry, abuses the Old West in computerdom's first Comedy Western: Freddy Pharkas, Frontier Pharmacist. And you get to live that legend... the tall-but-twisted tale of a man raised as a gunslinger, who gave it all up for his first love: pharmacology!

The year is 1888; the setting, post-Gold Rush California. As Freddy Pharkas, Frontier Pharmacist, you uncover a treacherous plot to turn your once-thriving metropolis into a ghost town. With pestles and pistols, you defend your bucolic burg from one catastrophe after another: arson, stampedes, hired guns, riverboat gamblers...even terminal flatulence!

Al Lowe has, immortalized...every Hollywood Western cliche' and character, adding his own perverse twists to produce his funniest game yet! You'll meet the pretty-but-shy Schoolmarm, the Madame with a Heart-of-Gold, the faithful Indian sidekick (Srini Lalkaka Bagdnish), and a cast of the most memorable characters ever to grace your monitor's silver screen. So come on, buck-a-roos! Strap on your spurs, saddle up your Palomino, and:
- Point-and-click your way through sagebrush, livestock, cacti, buzzards & swinging saloon doors...just like at the movin' pitcher show!
- Drink your own mistakes from an authentic, working, late 19th-century laboratory!
- Unlock your hidden potential with your very own copy of The Hidden Medical Advisor (1881 Edition)!
- Learn (and quickly forget) the real words to The Ballad of Freddy Pharkas!
