Game A is a simple target shooting level, 3 targets appear on the screen and the player has to shoot the gangster, or gangsters, that appear. The longer the game goes on, the faster the targets move and the less time the player has to shoot them. If the player misses 10 times, it's game over.

Game B - Hogan's Alley B

Whoops, sorry about that.

Game B takes place in a made up town consisting of a generic building with four windows, a gun shop and a fenced area with a 'keep out' sign. 5 targets would appear at each area before the level scrolls over to the next area. If the player misses 10 times, it's game over.

Game C - Trick Shot

Come on, 5000 points.
Come on, 5000 points.

Game C doesn't use the targets that Game A and Game B uses, instead the player has to shoot cans that appear on the right hand side of the screen over to the left hand side of the screen, there are four different platforms on which the cans can land, the top left platform gives the player 300 points, the middle left platform gives the player 800 points, and the bottom left platform gives the player 5000 points. There is also a platform in the middle that gives the player 100 points.

Game C was also featured in WarioWare: Touched! as a boss in 9-Volt's stage.
