Trapshoot is a 1975 wall game made by Gremlin Industries, Inc.. There was one in my hometown at a little pizza place downtown where wed hold users group pizza parties thats how far I go back. As with most wall games, this is played with a wireless remote that is taken back to your table, chair, etc. This game has a single button remote. Trapshoot, as its name might imply, is a shooting game. Its actually quite robust, considering the age and the technology level available. Its a two player game or one player can just play both teams where the player shoots down a clay pigeon by a designated hunter on the screen. The middle hunter is a Doubles player, and shoots TWO clay pigeons one from each side of the playfield.Each hit is awarded coins or points up to four that is added to their total score. A hit score of four will win you a trophy. Get enough trophies, and you get a free game.
