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...

It's Okay

This game is okay, but not much more, I thought the graphics where pretty decent and what animation there was seems pretty good, gameplay was basic and some parts seemed more like luck than skill, such as if you aren't careful, you hover over the wrong thing by a slip. A much better way would be to actually have you shoot the person rather than hover over them.

As for the gold element, it was okay collecting it and the gold mine map was pretty nice but when it came out of enemies, it was pretty hard to catch, even when I was sure I clicked it, it didn't register, this was a bit annoying, maybe some other mechanic could have been done collection wise.

The music was pretty good, maybe some sound effects when you actually killed someone though rather than just a shot. But overall, it wasn't a bad game but I didn't think it was anything amazing in my opinion.

Good game, broken premise....

I'm giving it an 'eh' with a shrug for the large problems that most seem to be harping on. The only things worth shooting are the 'Mexicans'. Even the 'Native Americans' took away points so I can only assume there's a theme you want to express. Or maybe it's meaningless...

Either way, you could have done well in making the things you could shoot wear masks and THAT would have been the differing factor. But I babble...

I enjoyed searching for gold all the while hunting for the pop-up guy to shoot, so the game factor was good. I would like to see more, but make it a bit more challenging. I held my mouse on one point on the screen and camped like some Halo douche.

However, there is one shining gem in the poop field I've just tread through: your choice of music. It set a good, likable feel to the broken, dusty mess you've spawned here this week.

Have a wonderful day.

Game about shooting mexicans

All the bad guys are mexican, the good guys are all white.

Not as bad as people claim, but...

The game is easy and the fact that there's no way to actually lose takes away any challenging aspects this game could have offered. I also felt that the crosshairs sometimes blended in with the environments a little too much, causing me to lose sight of it at times. This coupled with the fact that just simply aiming at a target meant you'd shoot it resulted in me killing a fair amount of the 'good guys' against my will. As a matter of fact, this crosshairs issue is the only thing that made the game a bit challenging for me, but that's obviously not a good thing. Cool music though.
