    Review The Adventures of Bayou Billy

    Billy's swampland slog

    In 2014 Nintendo suddenly realised that it could recreate the experience of a light gun game by using the pointer controls of the Wii Remote. Duck Hunt arrived on the Wii U eShop that Christmas and a few other NES Zapper games have followed since. Now we have Konami's The Adventures of Bayou Billy, although it should be noted...

About The Game

Brawl through the Louisiana Bayou all the way to New Orleans' famous Bourbon Street with former U.S. soldier Billy West, determined to save his homeland and his fiancée from local mobster Godfather Gordon and his crew.

The Adventures of Bayou Billy is a classic NES action game, notorious for combining beat 'em up sequences with driving and shooting stages. The shooting stages could even be played with the Zapper light gun, replaced with the Wii Remote in this Virtual Console release.
