Since the discovery of Kerium, the planet has attracted hordes of prospectors in their attempt to gain opportune riches. As well as the prospectors with good intentions there are as many with less honourable morals. Soon corruption and terror had fast overtaken New Texas and it all seemed to originate with one man, TEX HEX, and his hordes of evil friends. Evil attracts evil and Tex Hex was no exception - he is under the grip of the spirit Stampede. Stampede, a remnat of the dark past of New Texas - before even man took his first steps towards evolution - there were strange Bronosaurs roaming the rugged landscape. Their eventual extinction left only bones and fossils, preserved in the desert sands. Stampede's aim is to bring life to the ancient bones and once more reign supreme over the planet. His one way to do this is to extrude the magic sequence from the ancient Indian Shamen. Stampede has captured Shamen and has him in his grasp. The good Marshall Bravestarr - brought through childhood by Shamen himself - takes on the mission of his rescue. Alone, armed with his blaster and his wits, he sets out to take on Tex Hex destroy Stampede and free Shamen.
