Game Play

Shoot the 'good targets' for points. Moving and/or difficult shots are worth more points than stationary/easy shots. You must shoot X points worth of targets before the timer expires to move to the next level. The number of points required to move to the next level increases as the game progresses, as does the speed which the moving targets move. Shooting a 'bad' target deducts five seconds from your alloted time.

The game is directly convertable to ICheyenneI, ICrossbowI and IChillerI by performing a simple boardswap. ROM swaps will work between ICheyenneI, ICrossbowI and ICrackshotI. There is some question about a ROM swap with IChillerI since some people have reported that a IChillerI board will accept the other ROMs, but not the other way around.
