Players will find themselves situated at the bottom of the screen, able to move left and right, do a quick dodge roll to avoid danger, and fire back with reckless abandon against the enemies that fill up the top of the screen. Players will need to move their reticule around to take aim on the foes that move through the various Wild West settings they find themselves in, blasting enemies as fast as they can until each area is clear.
Players don’t just have to use the pistol they begin with. They can acquire temporary power-ups that are dropped from fallen foes to gain a quick burst of power or protection, as well as use the gold they acquire through play in order to buy new guns and equipment to make later levels a little easier as well. If they find themselves short on cash, they can take a break at the Saloon and gamble for a while to increase their gold stores.
