Playing Bang!Bang!

Install and run the game on your Palm.
Tap the screen to start a game !

As targets pop-up or fly past, tap on them as quickly as you can to fire a shot from your gun.

If you are quick, then some targets may drop some extra ammo for you. Miss too often, and you'll run out of ammo, then its game over!

Don't leave it too long before shooting, or maybe some of the ducks will try to take their own revenge!

Hidden Features

There are a couple of extra features we built in for fun....

  • Shoot a wave of ducks, and each one gives a higher score. Get all three, and you get extra ammo.
  • Shoot the wall, and you'll hear a ricochet sound, and leave a bullet hole.
  • Shoot the mole's helmet, and you'll get a ricochet
  • Shoot the mole when he blinks and you'll get extra ammo
  • Shoot the cat 5 times, and it will drop some more ammo
  • You can shoot cans while they are in the air.
  • Shoot a can on the left, and it will fly to the right, and vice-versa. Juggle cans in mid-air for up to 75 points per hit.
  • Graffiti 's' gives you a bonus 25 shells, at the cost of 1000 points.
  • Graffiti 'u' turns on (or off) a machine gun effect with infinite ammo - drag across the screen to wreak real havoc!
