Bambo is back for another round against the redneck hunters in Deer Avenger 4: The Rednecks Strike Back. Unlike the previous episodes, there isn't much backstory this time; just an no-holds-barred competition between the deer and the hunters. Bambo begins in his decked out bachelor pad of a cave which is equipped with a widescreen, wall-mounted television on which he can view game credits or the intro movies for any of the 4 Deer Avenger games. There is a trophy room and passageways to wildernesses in 4 different states. Bambo uses these doorways to magically teleport to the hunting grounds.
The action takes place in a large, open, 3D space with fog and running streams that can be waded through; the camera follows just behind the hero deer. Bambo runs around in search of hunters to engage. He can lay out lures such as pizzas or beer, or he can use any of a number of humorous calls, or he can find a broccoli power-up which affects a magnet fart. When a hunter enters the terrain, the music changes and Bambo uses either the hunter's voice for tracking, or a radar fart power-up. Bambo does well to sneak up on the human, hiding in shrubbery where available. When a hunter sees Bambo, the encounter devolves into an all-out dogfight. Fortunately, Bambo is nimble and has strafing capability. Further, he can collect rocket fart power-ups that jettison him across a lot of terrain very quickly, and a nuclear fart powerup that can destroy any hunters in the immediate area.
