Information about Desperados: Wanted Dead or Alive

Desperados: Wanted Dead Or Alive (12 walls) is a stealth-based real-time tactics computer game, developed by Spellbound and released in 2001 (20 years ago). In the game, the player controls up to six characters in a wild west setting. The protagonist is a wordly knife-fighter and gunslinger, John Cooper. He takes on a bounty to capture a mysterious and vicious train-robber called "El Diablo" ("The Devil" in Spanish). As Cooper sets off on his quest, he is aided by five other friends and they work together in a real-time, stealth based structure very similar to that introduced in Commandos: Behind Enemy Lines, although an all-out gunfight is still highly possible in the game. A sequel called Desperados 2: Cooper's Revenge was released in late Mar. 2006 (15 years ago). A second sequel, Helldorado, (announced as expansion pack Desperados 2: Conspiracy but made into a full game) was released in mid 2007 (14 years ago) in Germany. The English version was released in some regions in Nov. 2007 (14 years ago).


The game takes place in New Mexico, 1881 (140 years ago). Many trains have been robbed the last few months by a mysterious and vicious bandit called "El Diablo". The railroad company Twinnings & Co has offered $15,000 to the one who can stop El Diablo. Bounty-hunter John Cooper accepts the task, despite the objections of bad-tempered and contemptous US Marshal Jackson, but soon learns the mission is not as simple as he first assumed. John intends to create a team of his old partners to aid him on his hunt for the train-robbers, consisting of Sam, Doc and Kate. When he discovers that Sanchez is not in fact the leader of the raids, he releases him and enlists his help too. The team of 5 end up increasing by one more when Mia's father is killed at his outpost, and she vows to avenge his death.

In a surprising twist, El Diablo is revealed to be Marshal Jackson himself, who captures the characters and jails them in his secret cave headquarters. With the help of Mia, they successfully escape out of their cell. Cooper then chases El Diablo up to his office and kills him in the ensuing gunfight.


The game is well-known for having a very advanced AI. The player can use flashlights on NPCs to see their fields of vision. Depending on the color of the cone, the player can see the mental state of the NPC. If the cone is green, it means the person is calm. Similarly, a yellow cone signifies suspicion, and a red means the NPC has spotted one of the characters. Some colors signify special status such as a pink cone, meaning the NPC has become attracted to Kate, or a black cone, meaning they have been hit by Mia's blowpipe.

Another special feature is the Quick Action, in which certain actions - from running to a certain place up to using a weapon against a pre-targeted enemy - can be 'pre-programmed' and called upon immediately when needed. For instance, by programming his revolver with Quick Action, Cooper can either concentrate all three shots he can fire on a single opponent or divide them between up to three targets without having to move the mouse icon around.

An easter egg is to be found in the tutorial level for Doc McCoy: When he builds his scarecrow on the pier, a sequence occurs which spoofs a scene from The Empire Strikes Back.


The game received generally favorable reviews from critics. On the review aggregator Game Rankings, 80% of critics gave the game positive reviews, based on 28 reviews. On Metacritic, the game had an average score of 78 out of 100, based on 12 reviews.
