Ready for a little round up? With Stampede by Activision, you’ll have to ride fast and rope even faster. Those little dogies seem to be everywhere, and they’re all worth points. But, be careful!

Your ol’ horse can get a little edgy, especially when you take your eyes off the trail. So, head out West for hours of fun with Stampede!

The objective of Stampede is to round up all of the cattle you encounter. To do so, the player must lasso each one in order to capture it. The player is initially only allowed to let two cattle pass; if a third one slips by, the game is over.

I really didn’t think I was going to be able to get the required score for this game.  Once I understood the strategy of how to handle the brown “doggies” it got somewhat easier, but still a challenge.  Took many tries but I got it!
