Originally created for the ACTION 52 OWNS project, Sombreros is a top-down shooter inspired both by the vaguely racist original game and countless western movies and games.

3 short but sweet levels full of setpieces and lots of variety, wherein you might just have to throw molotov cocktails at a donkey or fend off ants with your breath.

Featuring original music by Arthur Lee that kind of kicks ass.

Excellent game! The difficulty is just right and the check points were really well placed. Sometimes the controls got in the way of me shooting in the direction I wanted but other then that, this was a great games, with great graphics and music!

This is so cool. Love the music and arcade graphics. Especially like the multiple aim button- Makes for some Clint Eastwood moments!

...' Sometimes the controls got in the way of me shooting in the direction I wanted'
I found that if you hold the shoot button you can strafe with autofire- makes it play a bit like the classic 'total carnage'

I'd like to shake your hand for making this game, and Arthur Lee's for making the music.

Okay, I'm stuck. In level 2, there's a metal gate tied off to four burros. It's just after the segment with all the moving cars and the dogs that stick to you if they touch you. Any hints on how to open the gate?

...Please don't tell me I need to have all four burros shot at the same time...I would weep at the thought.

You do, but it's not challenging, dexterity-wise. It's a puzzle involving the ability you activate by holding C. From the readme/ingame help:

"Ingame, use X to fire and hold C to activate Ojos Rojos mode.

In Ojos Rojos mode, press X to mark a shot location (up to 6) then release C to fire."

Aha! Thanks for the heads-up, Dustin! "Red Eyes" Hahaha! I hadn't read the readme file and just jumped right in. Human error.

I hope to post a review for this game once I've completed it...This will be a HUGE help, I'm sure.
