    TIPS AND TRICKS
    INSTRUCTIONS:

    When a bandit gets on the train, use the Action button to get on the train to attack him. You can't shoot bandits who are on the train.

    When an obstacle approaches while you are on the train, press the Action button to duck.

    To get off the train, press the Action button when your horse is near.

    If you are hit by enemy gunfire, or if you run into cacti, rocks or the train, you will lose a life.

    The game ends when all lives are lost or three bandits get on the train.

    After completing a stage, hit the coin tossed in the air and receive double bonus points.
