Boot Hill took the head-to-head action of early arcade games like Pong and transformed it into a simple but effective two player combat game. Itself a sequel to Gun Fight (adapted from Taito's Western Gun), the game updated its predecessor's concept with a colorful illustrated backdrop that added visual appeal and a feeling of depth, and two-axis movement, which added tactical depth to the game. The game uses two joysticks, one for movement and one for aiming and firing, a control scheme that was unusually deep for its era. Moving wagons and cacti provide a small amount of cover, but ultimately it's just two cowboys, and this town isn't big enough for both of them.
