DESCRIPTION

[COIN-OP] Gun Game

Gun Smoke © 197? KASCO (Kansai Seiki Seisakusho Co.).


In Gun Smoke, you are armed with a rifle and try to out-draw a wild West gunslinger who stands inside the swinging doors of a saloon. If you win the draw, the 3-D gunslinger falls into the dust; if you lose, he stands triumphant with his six-shooter still smoking. What is remarkable, technically speaking, is that both alternatives are contained in the 3-D action of the hologram. Sophisticated video game players might find the action primitive, but the holographic movie action is impressive.
