Shooting Gallery is a target shooting game, which seems to be most closely based on the arcade game Carnival, although with some major differences. In it, you control the gun at the bottom of the screen, and you have to destroy all of the moving targets. You have a limited number of bullets, but some of the targets will give you more. On the other hand, other targets can cause more targets to appear (if you hit them at the wrong time), and others can cause all of the targets to change direction.

If you manage to complete an entire set of targets, you get to the bonus round, where you have to shoot a large man, whom hitting causes him to both change direction and speed up. You can keep gathering points by shooting him, until he escapes off of the screen.
