Become a gunslinger in this epic wild west pixel shooter adventure. Plenty of bad guys to kill and a lot of nuggets to collect - shoot for gold! Hover mouse over bad guys but don't hover mouse over good guys or you will decrease your score. Click left mouse button to collect gold.

Important update:

I'm very shocked about some people claiming this game to be offensive to either Hispanics or Mexicans. I've never intended to be offensive against anyone! In fact there are some people who really feeling hurt by the games theme. In respect for these people I've changed the bad guys in the game. Please take my excuses.
Thank you all for your comments, especially the constructive ones.

PS: The changes are pending approval...

Slow and boring.

There's absolutely no challenge to this game. Even though there is the fact that I'm trying not to shoot the blond guy or the guy with the sunburn, I don't feel like I'm doing anything. I kept thinking the game would pick up and start making me actually test my reflexes, but it never did.
A short term fix would be making it so I actually have to click to shoot. But that would really just be slapping a band-aid on it. It needs to be faster and harder.

The art really needs an upgrade, too.

This was sweet graphics may have not been the greatest but its also great because it kinda works with the game in my opinion. Keep up the good work this is a great start to 2012.

Too simplistic for it's own good?

The fact all you have to do is hover over targets makes for A LOT of friendly kills! However that being said their is a great deal of nostalgia to be had when playing this 16 bit style game, and the game itself is entertaining once you get used to killing half of the friendly targets.

It works. I mean, the programming functions and it functions well. But it feels...lacking. I smell a moral issue somewhere inside there, but the chance to make a difference has been thrown away.

But at the same time, I don't get the sense that you're trying to make a difference. Not every game has to be Bioshock. Not every game has to mean something. And if you're going for mindless fun, good job!

Please, though, you can do more than this. I know you can. Blow our minds next time, okay?

Great Concept / Game!

I only wish that back in the day Atari made their games this well!
I mean, they had the technology and all to make a pixel shooter as well as this one.
Loved the music, graphics etc and the only thing I found rather tedious was the game play control. Trying to hit those damn coins was murder even when my cursor was directly over them and I mashed the left click button.
Other than that great game and keep up the great work!
