     Hello GameFAQs readers. It's me Philip Petrov from Punishing X Guides
    bringing you another FAQ/walkthrough on yet another Genesis game. Ok first
    about this game, I know that it's just a game that you pick from the store
    and return it just before you beat the first stage. Now to be honest I did
    this FAQ just because I am bored and have nothing better to do so try to
    enjoy this game (If you can).

     From here you will read a full walkthrough on all four stages in the game.
    
     Stage 1: Capture the Buckboard
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     Controls: D-pad up - Face up
    
               D-pad down - Duck
    
               A button - shoot
    
               B button - Jump
    
               C button - Duck under
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     OK, so this stage might be very tough for some people but thats why I am here
    right? Now first you are riding a horse and you will need do dodge everything
    in order to catch the Buckboard. First, jump over the box then shoot at the
    flying axe. Another one will appear so make sure to shoot at it too. Jump over
    the tree and then shoot at the birds. Now duck before the rock hits you and
    shoot another axe. Duck again and jump over a hole in the ground. Now a cowboy
    with a horse will appear behind you so press down and stay like that until he
    goes away. After a few seconds jump over another hole and grab the items ahead.
    Press C to get the item beneath you. Jump over this hole and you will see a
    small bridge. Jump over it's hole shoot the clock to get some extra time.
    Here duck and shoot and duck again and then again. Jump again over the box and
    shoot a bird (this is getting ridiculous). Now shoot the axe and jump over the
    box and shoot the bird and axe. Duck, shoot and duck again and now jump over
    the hole. Another stupid cowboy will appear from behind so press down and wait
    for him to leave the screen. Ok so jump over the hole and shoot at the
    multiple items ahead. Don't forget to jump over the hole. Here shoot many
    birds and axes and jump over a tree. Shoot some more and another cowboy shall
    appear. Do the same and get over the hole and shoot the bird. Now jump and
    duck after that. Do it a few times a then kill the bird. Here you will have to
    jump and shoot and repeat. Now you should be have beaten the stage and saved
    Clara.
    
     Stage 2: Shoot out practice
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     Controls: D-pad down - Upper your gun
    
               D-pad Up - Lower your gun
    
               A, B ,C Buttons - Shoot
    
     This is a first person shooting stage that you have to shoot at duck, gunman,
    pegions and bandits in the background buildings. Press down once to shoot at
    the gunman and press up two times to be able to shoot the pegions and bandits.
    You have got to make certain scores in order to get far in the stage and
    eventually beat it. A little advice, don't waste your time with the small
    ducks in front but shoot at the other stuff to get lots of points. Good luck!
    
     Stage 3: Urban shoot out
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     Controls: D-pad - Move and aim
    
               A, B ,C Buttons - Shoot
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     Here you will need to throw some dishes at the cowboys shooting at you. Make
    sure when you are out of dishes to go to the table on the right to get some
    ammo. First move a little and destroy the window. Get to the table and press
    up to shoot at the thug there. Press left once and throw at the next thug. The
    other thug will be on top of the saloon so get walk further and aim to throw.
    Now get to the fares left side and press up to aim at the thug that comes out
    of the door. Now go down a little and throw at the thug next to the table. Get
    to the center and throw at the thug at the window you first broke. Do this
    over and over to beat the stage and watch out for the bullets. At the end a
    big gunman will appear from the saloon to shoot at you. Reload here and keep
    throwing until he is down.
    
     Stage 4: Train ride
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     Controls: D-pad: Move or duck
    
               A button - Throw weapon
    
               B button - Jump
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     Note: On the ground or on objects you will see different colored objects that
    you need to get to increase the boilers temperature so don't forget to get
    them.
    
     You have a time limit here so make sure to hurry. First move only left and
    jump on the other side. Wait for a platform to come and quickly jump over it.
    Throw you weapon at the thug in front and move on. As soon as you see the next
    enemie keep throwing your weapon at him and jump over the next platform. Now
    kill the thug and go down where the lion is and kill another enemie. From
    the left you will barely notice some stairs. Climb them and kill the enemie.
    Wait a little for the platform to move then continue. Go down again and kill
    the enemie. Stand on top of the trees to kill the enemie on the train ahead.
    Jump At the train and kill another enemie. Jump again over the platform and
    move. Kill another enemie and for the next one be careful because he throws
    his knifes both down and up. From there another one will appear so take him
    down too. Go down at the empty spot and kill another thug. Get on top of the
    crate to kill another thug (it will take a few hits) and jump across. Now
    you will see some gas coming from the ground. You are going to have to keep
    an eye out for the gas on the ground from where it comes in order to move
    forward. Get the last object you will beat the stage.
    
     Congratulations! You have beaten Back to the future 3. Now "enjoy" your
    ending :)
