Use the Joystick Controllers with this Game Cartridge. Be sure to plug the two Controller cables firmly into the Video Arcade. NOTE: The Console unit should be OFF when inserting or removing a Game Cartridge. HOW TO PLAY GUNSLINGER One or two players can become expert gunslingers during these games: In one-player games (Target Shooting), you control the movement of a gunslinger with the left Joystick Controller. Practice target shooting with the moving target that appears on the screen. In two-player games (Gunslinger Games), each player controls the movement of a gunslinger with a Joystick Controller. You score points when your gunslinger shoots your opponent's gunslinger. NOTE: In all one and two-player games, bullets will ricochet off the upper and lower playfield boundaries. Use the Joystick Controller to: Move the gunslinger on the screen Aim and shoot bullets from the gunslinger's gun Push the Joystick forward to move the gunslinger up the screen. Pull the Joystick towards you to move the gunslinger down the screen. To move the gunslinger to the left, move the Joystick to the left; move the Joystick to the right to move the gunslinger to the right. When you want to aim the gunslinger's gun, press the red Controller button. Hold the button down while you control the movement of the gunslinger's arm with your Joystick Controller. Push the Joystick forward to move UP the gunslinger's arm holding the gun Pull the Joystick towards you to move DOWN the gunslinger's arm that is holding the gun After you have aimed the gunslinger's arm that holds the gun, release the button to fire bullets. NOTE: The player using the left Joystick Controller controls the gunslinger on the left side of the screen; the right controller player controls the right gunslinger. SCORING In one-player games, you score one point each time a bullet from your gunslinger's gun hits the moving target. You have 99 seconds to score a maximum of ten points. The timing clock appears in the upper right corner of the playfield; the gunslinger's score is in the upper left corner. In two-player games you score one point each time a bullet from your gunslinger's gun hits the opposing gunslinger. When a gunslinger is hit, it will sit down and the point appears at the top of the screen. The score of the gunslinger from the left side of the playfield appears in the upper left corner; the right playfield gunslinger's score appears in the upper right corner. The first player to score ten points wins the game. SKILL OPTIONS Expert position: Your bullets will disappear in flight if your gunfighter is shot before your bullets hit target. Novice position: Your bullets will continue in flight even if your gunfighter is hit before your bullet hits a target. GUNSLINGER'S CODE There are 16 gunslinger and target shooting games in the Game Cartridge. Each one presents different variations. For a description of each variation, refer to the following code: BLOWAWAY: Your bullets are more powerful during gunfights with Blowaway. You can shoot away pieces of the protective center -- a Stage Coach, Wall or Cactus -- until it completely disappears. CACTUS: Some gunfights and target shooting games occur with a Cactus in the center of the playfield. Bullets cannot penetrate the Cactus. Use the Cactus as protection from your opponent's shots. STAGE COACH: A Stage Coach stands between the two gunslingers during some games. Bullets cannot penetrate the Stage Coach, making it ideal for protection against opposing bullets. In some games, a series of Stage Coaches will MOVE up the screen between you and your opponent. WALL: In some games, a wall is located between the two gunslingers. These games also feature Blowaway. Use your shots to make a hole in the wall and aim at your opponent. GETAWAY: During a gunfight with Getaway, each gunslinger can move immediately after shooting the gun. Without Getaway, gunslingers must wait until their bullet disappears off the screen or hits a target. SIX SHOOTER: In these gunfights with Six Shooters, each player's gun only has six bullets in it. Receive another round of ammunition when BOTH players have used all six bullets. TARGET SHOOT: The Target Shoot is a feature of one-player games. The Target bounces up and down on the screen while you attempt to make a direct hit. GUNSLINGER TWO-PLAYER GAMES GAME 1 This gunfight between two players features a Cactus.
