Official description
Santa Fe in the late summer of 1883. Lester Lloyd Goodman is dead and buried, and his railway empire lies in ruins.

Cooper enjoys his bittersweet revenge, but only for a short while, because something else is wrong: Doc McCoy has disappeared. He was kidnapped and poisoned. The person behind the disappearance seems to be Goodman’s widow.

She meets Cooper in a church in Santa Fe, where she makes him a diabolical offer: she will spare Doc’s life if Cooper will carry out a few assignments that will brand him as a criminal. Cooper agrees.

Together with his friends he sets out to free Doc McCoy. But the more enmeshed they become in the crime, the clearer it becomes that much more is involved than the revenge of a young woman.

Features

* Real-time strategy and tactics in a hard-edged adventure in the old American Wild West.

* Enhanced Quick Actions: Unique to Spellbound games, this feature allows players to pre-schedule their heroes’ movements. Helldorado introduces a visual representation of intended actions combined with pause mode, keywords overview and tactical waypoint display
* Combo Actions pair skills from any combination of two heroes for added tactical versatility

* Switch instantly between freely rotatable and zoomable isometric and 3rd person views to gain the greatest tactical advantage.
