Description (by MrFlibble)

Freddy Pharkas is a humorous point-and-click adventure game set in the Wild West. Freddy is a young pharmacist in the shabby frontier town of Coarsegold, but he has a dark secret in his past. Will he be able to set things right and save the day when the town is threatened by a sinister plot?

The game makes heavy use of popular Wild West tropes and pokes fun at them at every turn, sometimes in a rather crude manner. Nearly every character seems like a caricature, and the cartoonish drawing style also emphasises the light, non-serious tone of the story. Nevertheless, Freddy will face some serious danger and eventually save the town.

The playable demo includes a short unique scenario that does not appear in the full game. Freddy needs to find a way to collapse the entrance to an abandoned mine where a bank robber is hiding. You will explore the town and talk to some of the characters to solve this puzzle, but the game keeps reminding you that this is just a demo, as many areas are not accessible.
