Do you have what it takes to be an agent?

Test your skills, using the Zapper, in Hogan's Alley. There are three quick-
draw games to choose from: First, practice making split second identification

can pop up from anywhere, then show 'em your stuff in the Trick Shoot, a rapid
fire round for only the toughest G-men.

How to play

The people who appear on the panels in Game A and Game B are introduced in the
demonstration sequence.

Three of the flashing panels are gangsters - shoot them as quickly as you can.
The other panels are of a lady, a professor and a policeman - people you must
not shoot.

Gangster A - 500 pts.
Gangster B - 1000 pts.
Gangster C - 2000 pts.


Game A (Hogan's Alley A):

Find the gangster from among the panels, and shoot him.
* Three panels will appear facing sideways.
* All three panels will turn toward the front at the same time. Find the
gangster, and shoot him.
* If the panel is hit just right, it will turn around.
* If you shoot anyone other than a gangster, the panel you shoot will flash,
and you will be penalized with a MISS.
* You will also be penalized with a MISS if you fail to shoot a gangster that
has appeared.
* The display on the top of the screen indicates the number of the seconds
that the panels face forward.
* The people drawn on the panels (gangsters, the lady, the professor and the
policeman) and their positions change continuously, calling for quick
* As you advance to later levels, the display time (seconds) for the panels
shortens, and so the difficulty increases.


Game B (Hogan's Alley B):

Find the gangsters from among the panels that appear in the windows of the
buildings or from out of the shadows, and shoot them.
* This game is played in the same way as Game A; shoot only the panels that
have gangsters drawn on them.
* Five panels will appear in the windows or out of the shadows in each scene;
however, their positions and the order in which they appear vary.
* The scene will change five times. If there are no MISSES, five panels will
appear in each scene. Five scenes (composed of 25 panels) makes up one
* As the rounds progress, the panels will move more quickly and will face
forward for shorter periods of time, making play more difficult.


Game C (Trick Shooting):

Shoot the cans as they are thrown, keeping them in the air and guiding them
onto the platforms at the left.
* Cans are thrown in from the right side of the screen, so shoot!
* If you hit a can, it will fly up.
* Keep shooting at the cans to keep them in the air, and guide them onto the
platforms at the left.
* The points for each platform are displayed at the platform. The points will
flash, and be added to your score whenever you get a can onto one of the
* You are penalized a MISS if a can falls to the bottom of the screen before
reaching a platform.
* You can avoid MISSES by placing cans on the safety platform, but you won't
get a very high score.
* Five cans will be thrown out for each round. They will be thrown from
various directions.
* The cans move faster with each round.



Games A and B:
The points you receive depend on which gangster panel you hit.
