Wild West Guns (WiiWare)

Game Profile

Draw your revolver to see if you’re the fastest gun in the West. Adjust your speed and precision as targets or enemies appear in front of you. Point and shoot to earn more points. You can aim at anything, so be sure to explore the environment for elements that will earn you more shooting points.

Identify your enemies among the characters you encounter, but don’t shoot at innocent citizens. Take part in an Old West-style train attack, or challenge your skills in a variety of increasingly difficult shooting challenges in other beautiful, classic and lively Western environments. As you progress through challenges, you’ll earn medals and rewards, making for nonstop, addictive action.

Play in a two-player multiplayer mode where you and your partner can combine points, or play against each other to find out who’s the fastest gun in the West.

Saddle up the horse and reload your six shooter - it's time to earn your badge, partner...

As children many of us spent several lazy afternoons watching old cowboy flicks, so it seems almost criminal that this classic Hollywood genre hasn't been granted a decent videogame adaptation for some time. Last generation's GUN was a modestly successful...

I'm keeping watch over this game as i have a feeling it will be like some of the old NES zapper games. Hopefully, there will be Wii Zapper support



Objection said:

In regards to this game, we still know nothing about it. And nothing has been said in any mags



Raptor78 said:

I think Gameloft make very good quality mobile games and if the price is right I can imagine that they can make very succesful wiiware titles too. Im looking forward to hearing more about this game.



Terra said:

I Knew there would be Zapper support. After looking at the screenshots, i think I'll buy this upon release



calculon said:

Could be a worthwhile purchase considering it's only 1000 points. Then again, considering I could pick up a copy of Ghost Squad for around a tenner (£10 equivalent of 1,500 Wii points) on Ebay - maybe not.

As for zapper support, unless there's some sort of calibration, I don't really give a rats. Any game can make use of the zapper - whether its practical or not - it's just a plastic shell.



Terra said:

Nintendo should have done a Zapper that isn't a shell but with the technology built into it already



Roboto said:

hehe this its grate i love this kind of games and i hope its wiizapper compatible
oh this wii it like my nes :D a lot of fun!



Virus said:

I hope it does well. It's nice to see a company like this try to make a WiiWare game from the ground up instead of constantly releasing remakes of their games.



Gavin_Rozee said:

Looks great. I like games based on cowboys. They remind me of an awesome SNES game I had back in the day called 'Sunset Riders'. I'm sure many of you know of it.



Rawk_Hawk said:

I remember Sunset Riders. Its was out on both SNES and Genesis. I also liked Gunsmoke from Capcom



Gavin_Rozee said:

I remember playing it in the morning before school and in co-op with my mate. I don't remember whether the game was technically any good, I just remember riding a horsey whilst shooting blokes on a train.



Knux said:

Looks cool. I wonder if they are ever going to release Duck Hunt or Yoshi's Safari on the VC or WiiWare?



Terra said:

Apparently, Japan get this next tuesday, so it shouldn't be too long before it comes out here, probably a month or 2.



danik said:

This looks very good, defintley will pick this up if its good enough.



Terra said:

Gameloft have so far surprised me with the quality of their WiiWare titles. I'm hoping for this to be another nice surprise



i_am_error said:

Really interested in that title. I've been looking for a cheap successor to Link's Crossbow Training as well as another use for my Zapper.



Raptor78 said:

@ I am error

i have found the game as good as if not better than Link's Crossbow Training. Also it have a two player simultanious mode which is better than just trying to beat each others score.



CanisWolfred said:

Well, it doesn't look too bad, but it seems to have almost too much going on at once, and seems like it's trying to be every classic Light gun game at once, but it still seems fun. Also, it doesn't seem any more offensive than any other western, unlike what I initially thought. I'll wait on the review first though.



Ian_Daemon said:

This looks like 'Lethal Enforcers' or maybe 'Link's Crossbow Training' gameplay with a 'wild west' setting. Not bad. Not bad.



i8cookie said:

"another one bites the dust" might get annoying after a while... are you just killing mexicans and native americans in this game?



Bensei said:

The video looks like a wild mix of Wii Play shooting range, Residen Evil Umbrella Chronicles and Link's Crossbow Training.



Mendez said:

I was just about to get this until I discovered it takes up 300 blocks :(
Looks really good though



Manny said:

Yes! Its here in the states now. Looking forward to this shooter.



Metal_Slime said:

Is this game somehow connected with "Wild Guns" on the SNES from Natsume? I know people are seeing a lot of comparisons to old games, but... the game-play and even the levels in this "Wild West Guns" are ripped right out of the SNES game. The train level, the inside the bar level and the outside the saloon level are all nearly identical. Anyone know if theres some shared team members?



Terra said:

Apart from the similar name and similar themes, i don't think there is a connection between the two. You could always email Gameloft and ask them yourself.



Objection said:

It is a big game, (biggest yet I think) but don't let that stop you from buying it! Investing in a good SD card is a sound decision. Get the 2GB Sandisk Made-For-Wii one if you can. It costs about $25. My friend bought a generic one ($17) and it won't hold bigger files.



Cheezy said:

I want it. It reminds me of an arcade game called Point Blank, which was awesome.



RoyOfTheRovers said:

I quite like this game, although 1,000 points is a touch steep.

As I think someone else mentioned, you only have 1 profile so it doesn't record your performance to compare to a mate, no leaderboards, etc. Certainly not a s deep as Link's Crossbow Training, although that is to be expected for the price.

Probably a 6.5/10 for me, but the gf loves the shooting games so you can't really put a price on the brownie points I got for downloading this one!



RallyFTW said:

There actually was a game that involved wild west shooting, believe it or not. I thought this was gonna be it. It kinda reminds me of Wii Play Shooting Range.
