Bullet Rodeo from RedDeerGames places you in the shoes of a Wild West vigilante who must defeat the bandits and bank robbers who are up to no good. Check our Bullet Rodeo review!

 

Bullet Rodeo from RedDeerGames places you in the shoes of a wild west vigilante who must defeat the bandits and bank robbers who are up to no good. The game begins with a short cutscene of a group using some dynamite to rob the bank’s vault. As soon as this cutscene ends, you’ll be thrown straight into the action so that you can use your gun to shoot down enemies before they escape with the loot. There’s a timer to keep in mind, so you’ll need to act fast and defeat all enemies before time runs out.

You’ll control your character with the left analog stick or the D-Pad, shooting at enemies with the ZR button. You can also aim around you with the right analog stick as needed so that you can target all bandits and get rid of them before they deal some damage. If you run out of bullets, you’ll have to reload by pressing and holding down the ZL button. You can also duck to avoid some bullets. If you’re low on health, be sure to shoot at the flying eagle so that you can heal your wounds. There will also be some sidescrolling levels during which you’ll have to duck to avoid obstacles or press the A button to jump over them.

The first game I thought of when I learned of Bullet Rodeo was Cabal, an arcade game in which you move around the screen and shoot at enemies, bushes, trees, vehicles, and buildings as you control a cursor to aim your shots. I figured Bullet Rodeo would offer a similar arcade-style experience with tight controls. Unfortunately, that’s not what I got. The game’s controls feel off, with the reload button not registering half of the time. Aiming also seems to have a delay as you move between the different angles you can aim at.

The gameplay loop is also very repetitive, with the same enemy types popping up over and over again. Oh yeah, and for some reason, you can choose to display the town’s large clock on the screen so that you can, you know, tell what time it is at that precise moment based on the console’s clock setting. You’d assume at least Bullet Rodeo would be available on Nintendo Switch at a budget price, but it’s actually out with an $11.99 price tag, making it a hard one to recommend.
