Shootout at Old Tucson is a live-action laserdisc video game, released by American Laser Games in 1994 in the arcade. The game saw a limited production run and was the only release by the company never to be ported from the arcade. Soon after the game appeared on the market, American Laser Games went out of business, which, along with technical issues which limited its popularity in the arcades, further contributed to the title's obscurity. Shootout at Old Tucson was also one of the first games by American Laser Games developed based on 3DO technology. The game was filmed at Old Tucson Studios.

Storyline[edit]

The action takes place in the old Old West town of Tucson, Arizona. The game's plot is based around gunfights with villains, much like that of its predecessors Mad Dog McCree, Mad Dog II: The Lost Gold and The Last Bounty Hunter.

Gameplay[edit]

The game, like similar releases, involves aiming a light gun correctly in order to eliminate successively appearing villains, simultaneously attempting to avoid hitting innocent civilians. Two-player support is included.
