Remember that awful, unresponsive red gun Nintendo released for the NES?  Well, you rely on it fully for this game, and boy…don’t ya know it.

Without the gun, you can’t play this game.  With the gun, you can’t play this game.  The gun is unresponsive and it is almost impossible to shoot the enemies as they enter the screen.  You don’t just have to shoot the enemies though, you also have to shoot Mr Stevenson, who walks continuously to the right.  You have to shoot him to make him jump…but as you can imagine, this is a task and a half!  If you miss him, he will end up falling down a hole, or walking into a monster or obstacle of some sort.  The gun has bullets (not in reality of course, in the game) and you collect even more bullets as you shoot the red balloons.  Run out of bullets however, and it’s game over.  Kill Mr Stevenson (yes please), and it’s game over.
