Saving the remain of civilization plays second best to keeping her sweetheart safe as our smart and sexy princess of the wild frontier runs a gauntlet of gigantic freaks and roving gangs of blood-hungry barbarians!

With their goal in sight, Sally and her crew are gonna need a little more luck if theyÕre hoping to navigate the city in one piece. Better get those guns loaded, ladies!
