There is a mine filled with gold somewhere, and old miners like you are attracted to this kind of thing. So you travel, expend all the money on your pockets and then do what has to be done: running around the desert in search of gold to expend on the search for gold.

It would be 'dangers' if you could point with the mouse, as they are quite slow, have quite bad aim and can end being quite profitable (Snakes are edible, and some bandits have a bounty on their heads). But the mouse can’t be used, and if you flee most of the times they will take everything of value, so you are left to end with a few bullets on your body.

Not really sure what you're getting at here. The game is controlled without a mouse. And that causes... what?

No, no. The game uses mouse, but not for gunfights. I suppose it was added just to some versions, and to keep compability they left all the important things controlled by keyboard. So you have to win a gunfight with keyboard, but can choose to flee with the mouse.

Ok, but what does the first sentence of the quoted paragraph really mean? I don't understand the trinity of mouse-danger-profit.

I suppose it's not well written then. The only reason they even have a chance of shooting you is because you have to aim with the keyboard, if you could use the mouse (which they let you use for menus) they would be dead before they know what's going on, thanks to how long they take to shoot.

Ah, so they wouldn't be dangers if you could use the mouse - not would ;)
