Bronco Riding

In this game, you must try to stay on a wild Bronco (horse) for one minute. The Bronco jumps, spins, kicks, etc. in an attempt to throw you off. Should you fail to keep your balance, then you are spectacularly thrown through the air, to land with a bump!

Game Controls

Calf Roping

This game is set at a rodeo show. You must chase a calf across the arena with your lass spinning as you go. When you catch up with the claf, you throw the lasso round its neck and pull back to stop it. If you fail to pull back quickly enough then you are dragged from the horse and across the area!

Game Controls

Stage Coach Rescue
