Did it ever surprise you guys how few zapper games existed on the NES-- like Duck Hunt... and... Gotcha.
18 isn't bad actually-- but damn if they aren't obscure. It seems like you could make a game halfway sweet involving a gun.
The Zapper still had 17 more than ROB. Which I had.
Oh, and I also had the awful toy that this was based on. I was duped by the commercials. I was a kid, so it's excusable.
If you have MAME installed, a good arcade light gun shooter is Night Stocker. It's a hybrid driving game/shooting gallery that is sort of a precursor to Lucky & Wild.
I think I'll just submit a video (if I can find one).
I also had a Gotcha toy. On top of being really difficult to pump, the barrel was kind of curved to the side like a hot dog and the refills were way to expensive.

Please tell me this was inspired by the awful Val Kilmer movie.
Somehow Top Secret was mixed up in my childhood memory there. Yeah, I was too lazy to google.

I had a set of Gotcha! guns. I still have one somewhere actually, and the mechanism still works if I remember. They were pretty fun, but man did it get messy.

The quality of any NES game is directly proportional to how good the music in the game is. This game is horrible.

Making a paintball videogame is like making a fighting game on LARP combat.

Gotcha isn't that bad a game. The person playing this isn't even playing it properly. You have to move the screen left and right with the D-pad. For a Zapper game, it was alright. Probably one of the few LJN licensed games (Gotcha! was a briefly lived line of splatball guns) that wasn't complete garbage.
It's one of the best Zapper games I've played, which means it's not good but I still played quite a bit of it anyway because I had to do something with that Zapper.
