This week on Shack's Arcade Corner, we are taking a look back at Hogan's Alley. The game hit arcades in 1985 and was developed by Intelligent Systems and Nintendo. Hogan's Alley was named after a shooting range and the gameplay was built around shooting only bad guys. One key difference between the game and other light gun shooters of the time was that Hogan's Alley featured more difficult scrolling levels. There was also a mini-game based on keeping cans in the air as long as possible. The cabinet was a bit larger than the typical Nintendo arcade game, most likely due to the light gun. Check out the video to find out more about Hogan's Alley.
