- Sunset Riders is a side-scrolling run and gun video game developed and released by Konami as a coin-operated video game on the JAMMA arcade platform in 1991.
Turn back the clock to the Old West in Sunset Riders. As one of four heroes — Steve, Billy, Bob, or Cormano — shoot your way through stage after stage of outlaws and bosses, and collect their bounties once you’ve exterminated them. Your basic movement is from side to side, but you are able to walk to your left and right as well. You also have the power to fire in any direction, including straight up into the air. But be cautious, for your enemies have the same abilities.
In addition to the common outlaws, you’ll also have to deal with obstacles such as stampedes and fires. Occasionally, you’ll come across dynamite, which you can throw at enemies to cause some major damage. You can also pick up power-ups to boost up your firepower and add to your dollar amount. At the end of each stage, you’ll fight a boss, such as Simon Greedwell or Paco Loco. Defeating them will earn you a substantial reward and allow you to advance to the next level.
