Wild West C.O.W. Boys of Moo Mesa is a horizontally-scrolling platform run 'n' gun game for up to four players. The game is set in America's Wild West and is based on the cartoon series of the same name.
Players take on the roles of four recently mutated cows - now turned lawmen; the Cowlorado Kid, the Dakota Dude, Marshall Moo Montana and the shotgun-toting Buffalo Bull. The lawmen must shoot their way through enemy-packed stages to take down wanted criminals.
Controls consist of a jump and an attack button and pressing both buttons simultaneously will cause the player character to perform a stampede attack, do a spinning jump, or use any equipped item like dynamite sticks and tomahawk blades.
Numerous variety of power-up items can be found by shooting flying chickens, these include a rapid-fire Machine Gun and a Power-Up for wider bullets. Players have a three-unit life gauge that allows them to take three hits before losing a life.
The game consists of eight stages, each with a boss fight at the end, and after the first stage, players can choose in which order they want to tackle the following stages.
