Western style shooting game featuring digitized characters. The game consists of 5 stages : Bank Robbery, Stage Hold-Up, Saloon Showdown, Train Robbery, and Hide-Out.
The player begins the game holding the rank of Sheriff, but if too many innocents or fellow lawmen are killed, the player can be demoted to Deputy or even Posse member. Complete a stage without killing any innocents, and the player is promoted to Deputy Marshal, further success can eventually lead to the player being promoted to the level of U.S. Marshal.
The player's gun can hold up to 6 bullets at a time. On each stage, there are special items that can be shot to reveal better weaponry, such as double rigs, rifles, 50 caliber sharps, shotguns, gatling guns and cannon. The gatling guns and cannon can only be used once but the double rigs, rifles, 50 caliber sharps and shotguns can be reloaded the same way as your regular 6-gun. Once a life is lost, any additional weapons are lost and the player is once again armed with only a 6-gun.

TIPS AND TRICKS
Unlike the first game, some enemies here can take two shots to kill, depending on how you hit them.
The bosses on Stage 3 (the saloon showdown) are three gunslingers who need to be shot in the order that they try to draw their guns one after another, and if you fail to take them down properly, you'll have to try again. This can be very difficult to clear when two people are playing, since six gunslingers will appear, three for each player, and if one player fails, both players will have to face the gunslingers on their side again!
On the third area of Stage 5 (the hideout in the mining compound), you can shoot and break the cable for the mine elevator to reduce the number of enemies who appear in it.
