The original version of this 8-bit game was one of Nintendo's early (A structure composed of a series of arches supported by columns) arcade games released in 1974. It consisted of a light gun connected to a 16mm projection screen. An image of a Wild West gunslinger was projected onto the screen and when his eyes flashed, the player needed to draw and shoot.

A Wild Gunman unit appears in the 1985 movie 'Back to the Future', and in the 1989 movie 'Back to the Future Part II'.
