'Sombreros' is another top-down shooter game on the 'Action 52' compilation. It has a Wild-West theme and, quite fittingly to the game's title, the main character is wearing a sombrero.
Although 'Sombreros' might be considered as one of the more inspired shooter games in 'Action 52' as there are definitely far worse titles in the collection (like the 34th game in the collection, 'Evil Empire'), the gameplay still has its fair of problems. The objective is simple enough, reach the other end of the level while avoiding cars (in the first level) and while disposing of your 'competition' (enemies), who are found strolling about on the game's map. However, the soundtrack is very frustrating and makes the overall experience of this game a little irritating.
- A sombrero is a broad-brimmed straw or felt hat, typically worn in Mexico and the south-western United States.
- This game's Wild-West theme might have been inspired by the famous arcade game 'Gun.Smoke', released by Capcom in 1985. 'Gun.Smoke' is a vertical, top-down shooter game like 'Sombreros' as well.
