Atari 7800 version of Barnyard Blaster
The goal in Barnyard Blaster is to rid a farm of vermin by shooting targets in several different areas. Players begin each round with a limited amount of ammo and need to successfully shoot a required percentage of targets in order to move on to the next round. The game features three different screens along with an additional bonus round after each one is completed:
- The Barnyard: The simplest of the three rounds, the barnyard provides several stationary targets in the form of cans and bottles lines up along a fence.
- The Cornfield: The second round takes place in a cornfield and offers both stationary and moving targets. First, players need to shoot several watermelons and pumpkins and then a variety of critters appear including crows and rabbits.
- The Barn: The toughest of the three rounds, the barn has all moving targets. Rabbits, owls, mice, crows, and other critters appear here.
- Gramps' Bonus Screen: Gramps will throw 10 bottles into the air; players need to shoot the bottles for bonus points before they disappear off of the screen. The quicker the bottles are shot, the more points are earned. If players accidentally shoot Gramps, the round is over. The bonus round appears after each of the other rounds are completed.
