Shoot Away (シュート アウェイ Shūto Au~ei) is an electro-mechanical game created in 1984 by Namco. It is a projection-shooting game where the player uses a lightgun to shoot projected clay pigeons. It received a "sequel" known as Shoot Away II in 1993, and was included as a bonus game in the PlayStation version of Time Crisis II. The game was also included in Point Blank DS as a bonus game. Shoot Away was featured in the 1984 movie Karate Kid in the Golf 'N Stuff arcade.
Gameplay[edit | edit source]
The player uses a lightgun (which looks very similar to a real shotgun) to shoot the oncoming clay pigeons. The player is limited to two shots per round. The round begins when the "ready" signal flashes on the pedestal. The player gets an "extend" if he/she shoots all of the clay targets, and another time for a "super extend". The game has three difficulty levels, which affects the speed of the pigeons and patterns. The game's projection screen can be mounted on the wall of on a stand (with the stand being more common).
