A Look Into Video Games: Hogan's Alley

Hogan's Alley was one of Nintendo's first light-gun games which used the NES Zapper. While most gamers fondly remember Duck Hunt, Hogan's Alley was a bit more like it's tougher cousin.
The game was a bit of simulation of what a police officer shooting course would be like. Areas filled with card-board bad guys and good guys. My favorite as a kid was shoot the can. 
But it's been ages since I played mine, and most of my memories are very blurry. I wish Nintendo would relase the game on Virtual Console or something but since the system lacks a light-gun (the Wii-Mote Pointer isn't the same thing I'm afraid) I don't think I'll be counting on it.

  1. I forgot all about this one, I think I played it about a dozen or so times, I preferred duck hunt.

  2. I remember a similar game on the Amiga to Hogans Alley called Prohibition where you shot gangsters who popped up in doorways and windows.
