ARCADE game Gun.Smoke ROUND 10 FINAL
WINGATE FAMILY MACHINE GUN & RIFLE Game ending.
A vertically scrolling shoot-em-up set in the Wild West, in which the player takes the role of a Billy; a young Sheriff charged with hunting down and killing a number of infamous ‘Wanted’ outlaws.
Each level is packed with gun-toting bandits and the Sheriff must shoot his way through the stage, before finally taking on the wanted outlaw ‘boss’ character at the end. Each outlaw wields a special weapon unique to them, such as a Winchester rifle, knives, darts or boomerangs.
Shooting the barrels that litter the levels reveals power-ups such as boots (for extra speed), rifles (for increased range) and bullets (for rapid fire). The game’s 3 directional fire buttons (for firing left, right or ahead) can be combined (pressed Simultaneously) to create a total of 8 different firing directions.
Gun.Smoke is not based on the old famous T.V. series of the same name, the first TV broadcast was on 10th September 1955, and it ran until 31st March 1975. A total of 633 episodes were aired over the 20 seasons – only the last nine seasons being made in colour.
Jaime Guzman holds the official record for this game with 1, 465, 250 points.
Alfa Records released a limited-edition soundtrack album for this game (Capcom Game Music – 28XA-94) on 25/08/1986.
CHARACTERS (source wikipedia) :
Wingate Family, Machine Gun & Rifle Round 10 boss(es). They are a family of criminals consisting of a father and two sons. (I would say they are brothers) They are said to be the most dangerous of the 10 villains because the sons are ace shots with their rifles and their father carries a huge Minigun that spreads bullets wider than a shotgun. Like Master, Pa Wingate will crawl on the ground when hit to avoid Billy’s shots. The Wingate sons are dressed in black (blue) and Pa Wingate is dressed in red with a belt of bullets strapped across his chest. $80,000
