Co-Op Classics Video Edition: Wild West C.O.W.-Boys of Moo Mesa
Where's the beef? Right here
For your viewing pleasure today, we've got a gameplay video for the game we covered most recently for Co-Op Classics: Wild West C.O.W.-Boys of Moo Mesa! It absolutely screams "early 90s brawler", from the anthropomorphic protagonists to the run and gun gameplay. It's so great we gave it the super sized treatment and feature it all by itself! (Besides, there's no room left in the article title for any other game!)
They may have been inspired by (or, to put it unkindly, ripped off from) a certain quartet of reptilian sewer dwelling marital arts experts, but the C.O.W-Boys are still very entertaining. There is a goofy charm to the game, with it's Sunset Riders inspired color palette and a nice variety of action to keep things interesting. The game also features some of the excellent character designs from the Saturday morning cartoon, which look fantastic in pixelated form. It's a pity that licensing issues will probably keep this gem from a modern-day release.
