Your goal is to rid your farm of vermin by shooting targets in each of three areas: the barnyard, the cornfield, and the barn. You aim and shoot
your light gun to hit static and moving targets on the screen. You have up to 40 bullets per screen, so aim accurately to avoid wasting precious ammunition.
In order to advance through each area, you must achieve a certain percentage of shooting accuracy in that area. Each time you finish one area of the farm, your scores are displayed: your score for that screen, your bonus bullet score based on the number of spares, and your total game score. You can shoot the score screen to advance to the next screen, or you can wait for it to advance automatically.
A fourth area of the farm--Gramps' bonus screen--gives you a chance to brush up on your target shooting and earn extra points. This screen appears each time you leave other areas of the farm.
If you make it through all three areas, you'll make the rounds again and again, with each round more challenging than the last. At the end of the game, you'll be given one of 13 possible target-shooting ranks, from Total Dud, the lowest, to Blaster, the highest.
