Gunman Clive launched previously on the 3DS, Android, and iOS marketplaces to high praise and great sales -- now, it's on Steam. I'm a huge fan of it personally, as I think it's a great homage to classic platformers of old -- particularly the Mega Man series.

One of the best aspects of Clive is how easy it is to plow through one playthrough -- which takes roughly an hour. Not only does this faithfully replicate the NES era in terms of length, but it also ensures that no portion of the game overstays its welcome -- and with a $1.99 pricetag, it makes perfect sense.

I had a chance to play the recently released Steam version, and it's basically the same game people have been enjoying for about a year now. It's a very basic port with no additional content, but it comes with controller support, a higher resolution, and extra achievements. The game natively supports 360 controllers, so if you have something else, just get your PC to emulate one by way of x360ce.

Check out the game's Steam listing here if you're interested.

Gunman Clive more popular on 3DS than iOS and Android

3DS eShop games enjoy no success, and developers are idiots for putting their games on the service. While fun to say, the previous statement isn't always true, as evidenced by news that Gunman Clive on 3DS has surpassed sales...more

Gunman Clive now has an update for those nasty crashes

Gunman Clive is one of the best games on the 3DS eShop. I really enjoyed my time with it (especially with the secret character), and for just a few bucks, it's a complete steal. At the same time, it did have a few major glitc...more

Review: Gunman Clive (3DS)

Imagine for a moment that you have the power to make videogames. OK, I guess you don't have to imagine. With tools like Unity, Game Maker, and Flash on the market readily available to anyone who puts their mind towards snaggi...more

Review: Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth

Some concoctions will leave you feeling sick to your stomach. You need look no further than Yukiko Amagi's culinary misadventures for proof of that. Other pairings seem to work far better than they probably should, like Atlus...more

Review: Sneaky Sneaky

Stealth is a tricky game mechanic to pull off well. If it is too slow it can be dull, but if it is too fast it is more action than stealth. If it is too predictable it becomes mundane, but if it is too random it requires more...more

Review: Logitech G910 Orion Spark

In high-level competition, every little advantage counts. It is why Olympic swimmers shave their bodies before a race, why pre-med students fight tooth-and-nail for every half point on every test, and why gaming keyboards exi...more
