Gun Fight is a 1969 electro-mechanical arcade game produced by Sega. It was a 25-cent shooting game.

Gameplay

The game pits two "gunfighters" against each other in a Western setting. Using a pistol handle controller, players move and shoot simulated bullets. Tops of cacti can be shot off, reducing the opponent's cover. When a player is shot, they are momentarily fallen to the ground before standing up again. Shots can be carefully aimed or triggered in staccato succession and gunshot sound effects are given off. Hits are shown on individually illuminated scoreboards. The game is set to default to 30 seconds.
