Play a Space Cowboy in ‘Cowmets Download’
Cowmets is a hilarious little space adventure made for the Ludum Dare 38, where you play a space cowboy hunting down space cows (called cowmets) and trying to catch them and put them inside his small green planet’s cow pen.
The gameplay is pretty simple. Mounted on your comet-like horse, you chase after cows grazing in space. Your objective is to catch as many cows as possible, and you do this by shooting them with your lariat gun. Once caught, the cows will move for a while until they eventually stop, thus enabling you to take them and land with them on the planet. Trying to catch cows that fly like comets throughout the galaxy is an interesting game concept, and the process of catching them is not without its challenges.
Cowmets has a cool and colorful visual style, accompanied by upbeat country music. All these elements combined make for a fun and cheerful gameplay experience. With its amusingly bizarre notion, Cowmets offers a light-hearted take on the shooting genre, making it a highly entertaining and relaxing game. Let’s straddle our horses and hunt down those cowmets that moo all over the galaxy. Who said cowboys could not have fun in space too?
