The Gunstringer returns on Windows 8 in this all-new sprint-to-the-finish twist on the wildly successful Xbox Kinect game! Hit the trail at a dead run as you race through three sprawling Wild West locations and 15 levels as the Gunstringer, the legendary skeleton cowboy marionette bent on vengeance. But as the ol’ saying goes—if you climb in the saddle, be ready for the ride! Avoid deadly obstacles, take aim in fast-action shootin’ challenges, collect tasty loot, and battle outlaws—all while being pursued by the hands of Hell! Complete the level-driven Story mode, and then challenge friends for braggin’ rights and loot payouts in three Endless Run levels. Exchange hard-earned loot for new customization options such as weapons, power-ups, and more to aid in the Gunstringer’s quest for the evil bandit!More

Cute game! Finally got it to work in Windows 10
It was very tricky trying to find this in the Windows Store. I had it for Windows 8 but it didn't show up for me in the Store app after upgrading to Windows 10. I was finally able to locate it when I looked at my achievements through the Xbox App and clicked on the game. It brought up the game in the Store App. I'm very happy that I can finally play this again.More
Good but Poor Touch Response
Great graphics and tons of potential to be an addictive, super fun game. That said, touch response is awful which makes the game very difficult to play. Highly frustrating. 😢More
I actually like this game. Its easy at the start but get steadley harder. I like that. It is addictive too. Runs your fingers off too. Have to pay attention to all the turns. But once you run all the courses that is it, needs an update to add one more place to runMore
This is a classic runner game that is actually challenging and has a sufficient number of levels to keep the play fresh. Like many games that are "free" there are ads and a store where you can purchase different outfits and other game features. Download and enjoy if you like running games.More
This is a great game to play on the computer. Its much like temple run, but it has more things to do in the game itself like customizing your character and having a story line in the game. I found this game to be really fun and I enjoyed playing it. I would recommend this game to any one aged 4+ because its an easy and addicting game. I am also very glad for this game to be free!More
It's As Good As It's Bad
For what has now been made available as a freebee, I have to say that while the graphics are pretty good, and the game is fun, the fact that you have to either play this FOREVER, or BUY extras with your own cash to achieve all the goals, I can only give this three stars. Maybe if there were more levels I would give this 4 stars, but the monotony of the three same scenes makes wanting to play it forever, in order to achieve all the goals, unappealing. I'm glad I waited for this to be a freebee.More
Good game to pass time with before having to do some work on the computer.More
You don't actually need to spend money in the shop
It's a little confusing since it lists two separate prices for each item. You'd think you'd need both to purchase but you can select gold, diamonds or cash. I changed my previous review because of this. The game is fairly fun but very derivative. It's like Temple Run but with shooting sections. These are glorified Quick Time Events. I wish they were a little better thought out but the game is still fun. My big complaint is there is no 360 controller support for the PC version.More
Enjoyable after v2.0 update
With the new v2.0 update, THIS GAME IS NOW PLAYABLE & much more enjoyable than before! Kudos to the devs for updating the game. The achievements are still ridiculous...but slightly less so, now. :)More
Gunstringer is a Fun smooth playing game
Graphics are great no lag quick load time not very technical but still a fun and interesting game reminds me of the android game temple run just better in my opinion CONS: In game purchases cost real money are you kidding me?! That wont make anything fun for kids and adults to upgrade one star lost for this reason otherwise I am very happy with the game Running on a Asus Vivo tab rtMore
