Action 52 Wiki

Shooting Gal (Shooting Gallery) is the thirty second game of the NES version of Action 52.


The objective of this game is very simplistic as you just shoot the targets that appear on screen. If you don't hit any of the targets, you will not be penalized in any way, shape or form. There is also no time limit and you can never run out of ammo.
