Gumshow 158/365

You know how at fairs they have the shooting gallery or dart throwing at balloons? Gumshoe took that thought and the brilliant idea of a side scrolling game only to put them together for weirdness. June 6th, 1986 was a really good day for people who love silly hats and hate balloons.

“Your daughter, Jennifer, has been kidnapped! You have to help Mr. Stevenson who is on a mission to rescue her. Throughout the levels there are five diamonds you must collect which are needed to complete the final level and rescue Jennifer, with plenty of obstacles and enemies to get in the way. During the game Mr. Stevenson continuously walks to the right and you have to use the light gun to save him from any obstacles blocking his path. Some obstacles can be destroyed with the light gun, others Mr. Stevenson will need to jump over (shooting him with the light gun will cause him to jump.) You have a limited amount of ammo, but more can be obtained by popping the balloons which are scattered throughout the levels.”

You need this more than the game ad.

What are your thoughts?
