Each one presents different variations. For a description of each variation, refer to the following code:

BLOWAWAY: Your bullets are more powerful during gunfights with Blowaway. You can shoot away pieces of the protective center -- a Stage Coach, Wall or Cactus -- until it completely disappears.

CACTUS: Some gunfights and target shooting games occur with a Cactus in the center of the playfield. Bullets cannot penetrate the Cactus. Use the Cactus as protection from your opponent's shots.

STAGE COACH: A Stage Coach stands between the two gunslingers during some games. Bullets cannot penetrate the Stage Coach, making it ideal for protection against opposing bullets. In some games, a series of Stage Coaches will MOVE up the screen between you and your opponent.

WALL: In some games, a wall is located between the two gunslingers. These games also feature Blowaway. Use your shots to make a hole in the wall and aim at your opponent.

GETAWAY: During a gunfight with Getaway, each gunslinger can move immediately after shooting the gun. Without Getaway, gunslingers must wait until their bullet disappears off the screen or hits a target.

SIX SHOOTER: In these gunfights with Six Shooters, each player's gun only has six bullets in it. Receive another round of ammunition when BOTH players have used all six bullets.

TARGET SHOOT: The Target Shoot is a feature of one-player games. The Target bounces up and down on the screen while you attempt to make a direct hit.
