Wild Guns (SNES / Super Nintendo)

Game Profile

Blast your way through villainous outlaws, diabolical robots and towering, screen-filling bosses either by yourself or with a friend at your side in the Super NES classic, Wild Guns.

You’ll need a sharp eye and quick-on-the-draw reflexes, but fortunately, you’ve got plenty of moves to help you survive the hail of bullets heading your way. You can dive-roll, jump, double jump, rope enemies with a lasso and clear the screen with explosive special attacks. Blast apart just about everything in the environment to find guns, bombs and other hidden power-ups. It’s up to you to bring justice back to town – or whatever’s left of it when the smoke clears.

True Bit

The Wild West is a fantastic setting for a video game. Rugged gunslingers, drunken shootouts, limited presence of the law and a surplus of criminals lend to a volatile and rowdy backdrop for a tense, controller-gripping time. In the case of Wild Guns it...

Wild West or limp at best?

Whether the game had any influence over the film Wild Wild West is debatable, but what can't be denied is that the two have a similar, inextricable link between cowboys and steampunk. While the traditional steampunk time period might still be Victorian...

Ah cool, nice to see this getting a VC release. I played it before and it was pretty fun.

|sf>I've never seen or heard of this before, but the video really makes this appear to be a neat gem.



JaredJ said:

would be great if you could point and shoot with the wii remote. too bad the VC doesn't work like that.



StarBoy91 said:

Yeah, but, EarthBound then got removed from the ESRB rating.
I should try to find a copy (from eBay).



StarBoy91 said:

I wonder how the control of this game will be like on an SNES controller?
I'm interested.



Aenaida said:

Actually, EarthBound is still rated. There's just very little chance of it being released.



brandonbwii said:

Thank goodness the classic controller has analog sticks. Now all I need is that Nam game for Neo Geo.



StarBoy91 said:

I'm still curious as to how it plays on the SNES controller? Do you use the Control Pad to both move the cursor and your gun-toting person? Please reply.



Charco said:

Control pad moves cursor and character. Y to shoot, B to jump and X for bomb. Controls are very good actually as the stages are pretty static (only a tiny bit of scroll).



BlueFlameBat said:

The d-pad usually moves both the character and the cross-hair, but when you hold the shoot button down, your character remains stationary and the d-pad moves only the cross-hair. You can dodge enemy fire while holding the shoot button by pressing the jump button while holding left or right. And yes, you are firing rapidly while holding the shoot button.

What I want for a Wii remake is to move the character with the nunchuk's control stick, move the cross-hair with the Wii remote, shoot with the B trigger, jump with the A button, bomb with either C or Z on the nunchuk, and quick-dodge enemy fire by shaking the nunchuk left or right. How would that sound to you? I'd also want controller options because I'm not selfish and I know there are people out there who prefer firing using the A button for whatever reason.



SuperTeeter64 said:

This game is pretty damn awesome.
I fairly enjoyed it. I just tried it. Still figuring out the controls and all. What's fun is you can use different color schemes for the characters as player 1 OR 2.
Personally, I find this kinda better than Sunset Riders.



Pepe said:

Hey Charco have you ever played Cabal for Nes? it's just like blood bros but better!!!



SuperTeeter64 said:

Dude... That's just horribly utterly lame of you... The game doesn't need Wii pointing motion!... It's on SNES for a damn reason... But fine...fine... Do what you want. Just letting you know your choice of reasoning is horribly poor...

Just bought it..... fantastic game! Why I waited so long to get it!
