Wild Gunman is a single-player game of light gun game and action genre created by Nintendo Co., Ltd in 1984.
The original version was a Nintendo's early electro-mechanical arcade game that was released in 1974. An image of a Wild West gunslinger was projected onto the 16mm screen and when his eyes flashed, the player needed to draw and shoot with the light gun connected to the screen. The player should be first and fast to shoot, and then he will be able to kill the gunman. If not the projection would show the gunman drawing and firing his gun.
The updated version of 1984 had replaced photographic images with cartoon-style video game sprites. In this version the player also waited for the opponent's eyes to flash (also with a speech bubble reading "FIRE!!") before shooting.
Wild Gunman can be played against one bandit, two bandits or in Gang mode. There you shoot them as they appear in the doors and windows of an old saloon.
