Boot Hill is a shooter arcade game released by Midway in 1977. It is a sequel to the 1975 video game Gun Fight, originally released by Taito as Western Gun in Japan.

Description[edit]

A classic one or two-player western gunfight game. Each player uses a small joystick to move their cowboy up and down the play area, while a second, much larger joystick is used to aim the pistol and shoot - this larger stick also has a trigger button. The game's single goal is to shoot the other player situated on the opposite side of the game area with the allocated 6 bullets. Wagons move up the middle and cacti litter the play area, both providing temporary cover from the opponent's gunfire and disintegrate when shot. The player may play against the machine or another person in two player mode.
