The overlay contains rows of shooting gallery targets, and the player attempts to shoot the computer-controlled dot with the light gun as it moves over them

Shooting Gallery is one of the 4 games available with the Shooting Gallery add-on. Three of the games use game cart #9 and this fourth one uses #10. The add-on comes in its own box with a gun!

This special cartridge displays two paddles between which a big square (much bigger than normal Odyssey ones) goes back and forth, revealing a plane, a rabbit, a duck or a boat depending on which row the target is moving.

Player 1, which holds the gun, is trying to shoot the target as many times possible. Player 2 is assisting player 1 by moving the target down every 10 back and forth.

This game is quite advanced compares to other Odyssey games, as it's only one which almost doesn't need a second player action to have fun, the target moving automatically between the two paddles.
