Shot in the Dark is a supernatural western that puts a lone bandit on a trail of vengeance against demons, cultists and other horrors hiding in the dark. Demons hide in the dark, while our hero shoots from the light, offering a unique challenge that combines a pixel-perfect platformer with precise shooting.
Be on the lookout for glowing red eyes, shadows moving through the trees, and figures lurking in the night before they can strike. The only sign of a demon on your trail is the slight movement of the tall grass and sometimes all you can do is take a shot in the dark.
