Billy The Kid

Not quite as good as Bronx Street Cop, but nearly. You get to blow tins off cactuses in the practice round this time. The cowboy at the side of the screen also throws a tin which you can keep aloft by shooting at it - if you're skill enough that is. Then you go on to 'help Billy The Kid shoot his way out of' various sticky situations. You only have limited ammo for the main parts of the game, but in the practice round you can put on the rapid fire switch and blast everything to ribbons. This is one of the funniest ways to play any of the games. Skill to Middling I'd say.
