Description

One to five players compete by shooting clay pigeons from 8 fixed positions. At each position, a first pigeon flies by from the left side, and a second pigeon from the right side of the field. Some positions provide an additional third round in which two pigeons are launched from both sides simultaneously. By adjusting the size of the pigeons, their speed, and the gun choke (the width of each shot's spread), the difficulty of the game can be modified.

Trivia

According to Steven Levy's book Hackers, Apple II game programmers in the early 80s were so quick in continuously surpassing the technical quality of their programs that Ken Williams removed Skeet Shoot from the company's line-up only a few months after its release because it already looked too primitive and dated in comparison to other products.
