Wild West Guns is a shooting game for the Wii in the tradition of the classic laser games. There are six main levels in the game with three scenarios each. Players use the Wii Remote, or Wii Zapper, to shoot by pointing it at the screen and hitting a button. Reloading is not required. There are many different shooting games, such as shooting birds and targets, keeping a can up in the air for a set amount of time, or even a classic shootout, among others. Players need to reach a set target score to advance to new levels. Achievements can be earned for doing certain objectives throughout the levels, such as getting high scores, completing levels fast, etc. Many levels have random objects in the environment that can be shot for extra points, while there are also innocent bystanders that need to be avoided. The game can be played cooperatively with a second player.
