Quick Shot Carnival © 1995 Virtuality.

Quickshot Carnival is the ultimate fairground shooting gallery. You'll find yourself in the centre of a candy-striped carnival tent full of irresistible targets. It's 360° of shimmering tin cans, marching soldiers, leaping fish, dive-bombing birds and more.

All you have to do is shoot the targets as fast, furious and accurately as possible to score enough points to advance to the next level. There are eight levels to conquer with different themes ranging from an undersea adventure to an out-of-this world intergalactic fantasy. Each level has bonus targets hidden in secret places that you'll have to find and shoot to boost your score.
