is coming, I thought this would be a good time to review Turkey
Shoot! It is not every game that allows you to battle turkeys.
But these birds have gone bad and it is your job to stop their
criminal ways! And you thought Chicken Run was crazy?
This is another of the
light gun games. But on the computer, you use the mouse to move
around and the control key to shoot. You also can throw
grenades and make a turkey call, which freezes them
momentarily. You get one grenade and gobble per level. While
you may think that you are only dealing with regular turkeys,
that is far from the case. There are also dive bombing turkeys
and robot turkeys as well as the thug turkey. These gobblers
are robbing banks and causing all kinds of havoc and only you
can halt their fowl ways.
(Turkeys gone bad! And
you thought killer tomatoes were dangerous.)
But the streets are not
just full of turkeys. There are also innocent people who need
to be saved. Besides saving them, you must also avoid shooting
them. Shoot a person and you cause a fowl. Three fowls and you
lose. Also letting a turkey carrying money to escape will cause
a fowl, so keep them corralled.
The graphics are
simple, but fun. Shoot a turkey and he becomes a stuffed bird
(not the taxidermist kind, but the kind you would find on a
dinner table). They run around with their weapons and look
pretty cute, for rampaging turkeys. The game greets you will a
gobble and the sound is pretty decent. Unlike many of the MAME
lightgun games, this one is quite a challenge and it will take
some time for you to beat all the levels. No walk through the
Turkey Shoot is a
quirky title with some appeal. While it will not go down as a
classic, it is a nice treat. If they can find a way to make
lightgun support for MAME, then games like this will really be
more fun. But even with the hardware limitations, it is still a
fun little game that you will gobble up. Sorry, but I couldn't
This is just a review of the arcade machine.
