Freddy Pharkas: Frontier Pharmacist Sierra On-Line, Inc. 1993

Yee-haw! Experience life in the wild, wild west in this adventure co-designed by jokesters Al Lowe and Josh Mandel. As the title suggests, you are a gunman-turned-pharmacist who will soon find enough cause to pick up a gun again. Throughout the town, businesses are either being bought or proprietors are being scared out of town. Someone is obviously trying to take over the entire area, but who? And why? The slimy sheriff doesn't seem eager to help, so it's up to Freddy to find out the details. The cast includes the town's eccentric old man and story narrator Whittlin' Willy, Srini (Freddy's "Injun" sidekick - actually Indian-as-in-India), town schoolmarm (and Freddy's love interest) Penelope Primm, and Madame Ovaree, who runs the local brothel. Excellent puzzles (except for the annoying, devious copy-protection scheme disguised as "puzzle" in filling prescriptions), cool plot, and tons of zany characters. The humor is somewhat stale and predictable, however. Suffice it to say that if you have never understood the appeal of John Wayne movies and raunchy cowboy humor, you won't enjoy this game. But for anyone who appreciates jokes that have the word "flatulant" in them, this is the perfect game for you. It was released in both floppy disk and CD-ROM versions, the latter having full voiceover speech for all characters. The game's manual is entitled The Modern Day Book of Health and Hygiene, a parody of 19th century medical texts. It contains information necessary for solving prescription puzzles.
