Gameplay[edit]

The objective of the game is to accumulate the needed amount of points to advance to the next level. To do that, you must shoot down as many targets as you can without hitting the tombstones that block your attack. There are many targets that vary in points. including skeletons, skulls, axes, maces, and many more. After either beating or losing a level, Dr. Dearth will either comment or criticize your progress.

  • Example: you lost. "The idea is to shoot the targets, meat-head!"
  • You win: "You know, maybe they'll put... "he did O.K."... on YOUR tombstone!"

Sequel[edit]
