What They Said

"Although it doesn't offer anything particularly new it's enjoyable as, being a direct port of the arcade original, it's like playing the "official" conversion." (Read Full Review)

The Game

Eliminate all targets moving in three rows, plus the eight rotating pipes at the top of the screen.

The targets are rabbits, owls, ducks, numbered squares (which give extra bullets) and the letters BONUS which, if shot in order, give a bonus.

You control a gun at the bottom of the screen. It's game over if you run out of bullets.

Beware: There is an inexhaustible supply of ducks and if they get to the bottom row, they may fly down and eat some of your bullets.

Bonus Box

There is a bonus box that appears randomly. If shot, it can grant or deduct points or bullets.

Bonus Round

After clearing all targets, there is a bonus round where you must shoot the bear as many times as possible before it runs away.

Hints On Play

  1. For maximum points, shoot all the pipes first, then the targets using only the top row, and then finally B, O, N, U, S.
  2. Don't waste any bullets.
  3. Remember to get points from the bonus box.
  4. Don't take too long - the game speeds up the longer you take.



The disc version can be loaded by holding down the SHIFT key and tapping BREAK.
