Colt Canyon Review
Posted: 15 months ago, last updated 6 months ago.
The novelty is the focus on fast and accurate shooting. If you die, you have to start again but you can unlock a range of characters and weapons. Each round creates a random level with persistent elements that enable both stealth and shooting strategies.
The longer you survive the more enhancements you can unlock (by saving civilians). These range from simple improvements to health or firepower, but also can add companion partners who can follow you around and take on enemies.
Players: You can play with 2 players in the same room, but you can’t play it online. Playing with someone else adds an extra layer of co-ordination to creep up on enemies and to revive each other when you die.
PEGI 16 with strong violence. ESRB TEEN with Blood, Violence.
In addition to the official ratings, it’s worth noting that although the graphics are pixilated, they are still graphic depictions of shooting people, dismemberment and stabbing. Bodies disappear after they are killed. You also encounter innocent people tied up or nailed into coffins. Horses, dogs and wolves attack the player and need to be shot to survive.
