Stranger's Wrath HD

  • Enhanced visuals and cut-scenes
  • Characters remodeled and retextured
  • Music, voice and SFX upgraded
  • Hidden easter eggs and unlockable extras

In the dusty, undeveloped wastelands of Western Mudos, cantankerous townsfolk find their settlements besieged by belligerent outlaws. Along comes Stranger, a tall, dark and enigmatic bounty hunter with a critter-firing crossbow.

Better on PlayStation

First released in 2005, Stranger’s Wrath has been recrafted for PlayStation 3 and PS Vita with all new visuals, enhanced character models and richer environments. On PS3 it's a silky smooth 60 frames per second, and runs in proper 3-D too.

Strange secrets!

Stranger is keeping a secret and needs expensive surgery to survive. In his quest to earn enough Moolah, Stranger reluctantly accepts the ultimate bounty before coming to learn the truth about the valley’s oddball inhabitants, and suddenly his adventure takes a very different turn.

Your bounties

Earn moolah by tracking down outlaws with bounties on their heads and then apprehending them - dead or alive.

Your choice

Taking down key baddies from a distance is easier than cuffing them up close and personal, but the rewards aren't nearly as profitable.

Moolah means money

The better the bounty, the bigger the reward. Here are the first few in the game, there're lots more to find!

Choose your weapon

stranger's crossbow

Stranger's crossbow, available from the beginning of the game, offers up a multitude of Live Ammo types.

Each offers different combat possiblities, and Stranger can arm any two at once.

Chippunk

Chippunks issue taunts to Stanger's opponents, and are used to get an enemy's attention and lead them to a spot designated by the player. Can be used to bait bad guys away whilst hiding, or to split up a large group.

Bolamite

These spider-like creatures can stop an enemy temporarily, wrapping them in webbing and keeping them quiet until the effect wears off. Great for stealthy play, and useful for bounty hunters like Stranger.

Can be upgraded for greater power, which drains energy from the bad guys.

Fuzzle

Fuzzles work like mines, waiting for enemies to pass at which point they pounce and begin attacking, knawing at your prey.

Fuzzles can be upgraded, at which point they'll attack even harder - a very useful weapon to keep around.

Thudslug

These knock-out creatures do exactly that, dealing a huge amount of damage to anything in their paths, and that includes the environment as well as enemies - there are few creatures that can stand up to a flying thudslug.

Upgraded, they become Riotslugs, deadly at close range.

Zappfly

These offer up a decent rate of fire over an average range, capable of knocking enemies out without too much fuss. However, when charged up they can be used to activate machinery across the world.

Stingbee

These wasp-like critters are great for long range (they come with a sniper mode) and offer a stealthy (read: silent) way to deal damage to foes who aren't up close and personal.

When upgraded they become Stingbee Blasts, which offer a rapid-fire alternative.

Stunk

These might look like skunks, but they're super effective, rendering enemies (and otherwise) helpless should they stray too close - then it's up to you to either take them dead or alive.

Powered up they're even more offensive, pulling in nearby foes in their Implosion Stunkz mode.

Boombat

Once fired, a Boombat starts counting down to an explosion sure to take out anything and anyone nearby. And better than a portable, living bomb? They're sticky, so if you get one on an enemy it's not coming off!

And for even greater destruction, they can be upgraded to Bada Booms, which countdown quicker and feature five little internal critters that'll escape and cause even more damage at the moment of impact.

Part third person adventure, part first person shooter, part puzzler.

Something that other HD remakes could definitely stand to learn a thing or two from.

The gaming world has a chance to reclaim one of its brightest treasures.

The game would easily be worth £40 if stuck on the shelf of your local retailer.
