You are in the middle of a duel, in the middle of the Wild West, in the middle of an Atari game. And all you have on your side is a revolver with bouncing bullets. No more, this is after all an Atari game, so it requires no more.

In 1978 this was about all there was if you couldn't leave the house. Not much different from any other Atari shooter. Try to goad your opponent into a vulnerable position while maintaining a safe place for yourself. There is a modicum of strategy. Don't waste your bullets because you can't reload until your opponent runs out too.

Outlaw is an arcade port to the 2600. The Atari arcade game ('76) itself was a rip off of Midway's Gun Fight. Another variation on the theme can be found in the gory Showdown in 2100 AD for the Magnavox Odyssey
