About The Game

Point Blank is a lightgun-based arcade video game where players can select from a variety of target practice mini games.

Many games require skill and accuracy, such as shooting cardboard cutouts of criminals, a one-shot chance at hitting a leaf, aiming for a specific toy from a shelf, and shooting at objects that move across the screen or rush towards the player.

Your 'judgement' is based on your shooting accuracy in some games, and others require you to hit a certain number of targets within the given time.

Trivia

This game is known in Japan as "Gun Bullet".

Julian Hicks holds the official record for this game with 135,730 points.
