Gremlin developed and Sega released this relatively simple shooting gallery game in 1980. Unlike later Sega arcade games, what makes this game stand out is not the graphics, but the sound. This game, unlike any other game of its time, replicates a real world setting in sound design, the busy atmosphere of a carnival shooting gallery. Shooting sounds, birds chirping, and a very realistic bell sound when you hit a target are essential gameplay feedback sounds, all accompanied by the song 'Sobre las Olas', a very early example of background music that even changes key and tempo as the game progresses.
