Note:

Feedback is appreciated! If we get a good overall response to this version we will improve the AI to be more competitive and probably release a separate version with the NES palette.

Description and inspiration

Wild West themed poker for CGAJam built in Unity3D and inspired by one of my all time favorite NES games, Casino Kid

Something might be wrong with cheat detection - it froze once when i tried to cheat, but other times was fine.

Otherwise fun game.

Thanks for the heads up -- will look into it -- need to clean up the code, was a rushed job at times

Fun game, I enjoy card games a lot but I wish he wouldn't fold every time I go above 75 bucks on a bet bluffing or not. It makes it really easy to get money, bet 45 then 110 kind of thing.

thanks for the feedback -- the AI could use some improvement. I might end up revisiting this game and upgrading the AI / releasing a version with different graphics. glad you enjoyed it!

Nice game! With some sprucing up, I think it could become a great game! Found the controls a bit confusing., Think there are a bit too many and breaks the immersion a bit. But overall, I really liked it!

thanks for the feedback!  we might end up revisiting it depending on the overall response we get. I'd like to improve the AI, add more characters and an overarching quest.
