Colt Canyon is a beautifully animated pixel art Wild West shooter with roguelike elements, where you set out into the wilderness to save your partner from bloodthirsty bandits.
Previously featured on Alpha Beta Gamer when it was an early prototype called Help!, Colt Canyon is a 2D pixel art shooter where you use yotu trusty six-shooter and a load of dynamite to blast your way through a hostile canyon full of hazards, bandits, weapons and treasure. Your goal is to find and rescue your partner from a gang of blood thirsty bandits, but finding them is the easy part – you also have to get them home in one piece!
Colt Canyon features randomized, persistent levels, a variety of unlockable characters, upgrades, boss fights and permadeath. At times you’ll be accompanied by AI companions, but you can also play in local coop if you’d prefer some human support.
The original 2016 prototype was already a whole lot of fun and it looks like Colt Canyon has been fleshed out with a nice array of features since then. The pixel art animation looks particularly impressive, with lots of detail in the beautiful bloodstained desert environments. Sign up now for a chance to shoot your way into the Beta.
