Name That Game

Today, we have another arcade lightgun game on NTG. This is another game I look back on with great fondness... Well, maybe that's not the right word. The object of this game is to shoot the hell out of the torture victims laid out before you, exposing their bones and making them bleed profusely - ultimately killing them. Nice, huh? Here's a further description from KLOV:

Various special situations are created as well. For example, shooting the edge of torture racks, to pull human targets apart into two pieces, or shooting the handle of a guillotine in order to drop the blade across someone's neck

This game came out in 1986 - three years after Crossbow. And it was made by the same company: Exidy. Infact, this game uses pretty much the same technology. Not really surprising since they don't look all that different graphically.

A great weird game. I still can't believe it was ever made. The 80's were a grand time.

Now get on that scent and Name that Game!
