Sure Shot is a simple action game where two soldiers have to defend a group of islands from waves after waves of enemies. The two machine gun equipped soldiers are positioned on each side of the screen. The enemy soldiers will than appear in the middle of the screen and the player can choose to attack from either sides (or both at the same time) of the screen. The problem is that since they stand face to face they will likely hit each other, and the player therefore carefully has to calculate how much gunfire is needed to mow down the enemies while at the same time not killing his own soldiers. Each of the soldiers has twenty hitpoints. If either of the soldiers die the mission will be failed. In addition the gunfire the player also has a bomb to his disposal. It can be moved horizontally by the soldiers since it's tied to a rope.
There is two game modes in the game. The battle ground mode contains 25 preset levels divided on five islands. The training ground mode allows players to setup their own areas.
