The long awaited thrilling conclusion to the Shootmans trilogy, Shootmans III: Götterdämmerung the Final ~ eternal cruel apotheosis ~ Deadly Armageddon Apocalypse Edition - The Official Movie Of The Game Of The Book, is finally coming out -- and now with at least 50 % more mans to shoot than in Shootmans II! New man shooting technology together with DawnBringer's DB32 palette brings shooting mans to the new millennium exclusively on Amiga 500. Atari owners can go play whatever it is they play on their machines; it sure as heck ain't going to be Shootmans III!

"Shooting mans has never been this visceral, it's like I'm really shooting mans" -Neurogamer
"Must have for fans of man shooting, those mans aren't gonna shoot themselves" -Sudoku
"mooooooom not now can't you see i'm shooting mans" -Constructoid

The time is now. The hunt is on. The moose is loose. Shoot or get shot.


I'm happy to have finished this in time. First my idea was just a static shoot'em up screen, then it of course had to be animated, then I just had to have a loading screen, then a lobby screen.. I ended up spending something silly like 15 hours on the logo alone before even starting on the actual game part, and I was worried that together with the other screens, I wouldn't have the time. In the end, it's pretty close to what I wanted to do. My old Paint Shop Pro and Animation Shop weren't helping because they're really showing their age. :D

Nope, although the character kinda does look similar!

omg is it an Electrobody homage as well?

honey (Level 1 Thug) @ 4/25/2014 11:37

Wow  you went above and beyond! I love everything about this ughhh 

albertov (Level 4 Button Man) @ 4/25/2014 03:51

Man, what a logo!! I like it a lot! Can't say the same about the character though, but this is an excellent piece overall.

Arkan85 (Level 9 Rear Admiral) @ 4/24/2014 04:48

The main title is really great!  I like a lot also the other graphic elements!

The gameplay is not so good... I mean:

"The enemy spawns and kills me in one second? I give up!"

Delicious (Level 9 Boss) @ 4/23/2014 13:57

You put some solid effort into this, wow! 

inphy (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 4/23/2014 08:49

Thanks! Yeah, the sprites are not as good as I had hoped. I'm not happy with the tileset either, I was hoping to have more time for them, but alas. I could've spent at least a couple of extra hours on them, I had to reserve time for baking all the stuff in into actual frames too but that went faster than I thought. Overall it might've been better to scale down a bit right from the start instead of trying to cram in everything and the kitchen sink, heh. :)

The Turrican logo homage is my fave thing of this.    I think the character sprites let it down but overall nice work.

SuperTurnip (Level 1 Seaman) @ 4/21/2014 21:12

I love this. Your description made me laugh, and the pixelling is great!

Zadaben (Level 1 Thug) @ 4/21/2014 19:57

Absolutely amazing
my one critique would be that the characters seem a little stiff and disproportionate, but considering the amount of time you had to put this together I can see where you would end up short on time to design something better. They definitely get the point across.

Incredible, I was totally blown away (pun intended?) Mega nostalgia activated! Yes!

Daruda (Level 4 Button Man) @ 4/21/2014 12:57

The logo is amazing and stunning.

That uzi is so OP, it's ridiculous. Imba much?

Nice pixelling though. 

Elastico-Gadget (Level 2 Kukyu) @ 4/20/2014 16:13

Wow, great job.

atei (Level 1 Intern) @ 4/20/2014 15:05

Holy crap.  It just kept going and going, the intro logo is sick...everything is sick.

DawnBringer (Level 10 Maniac) @ 4/20/2014 14:56

Cool! Spotted the Turrican logo right away :) ...but did not realize it was DB32 until reading the description :/

Looks like a lot of work went into it! I really like the intro sequence with the title and searching for players.

BillToWin (Level 1 Gangster) @ 4/20/2014 12:58

I'm completely blow away by this. I guess I shouldn't be that surprised though, you're very very good.
