Ruffian!

Broken Pixel's Ruffian! is all about being the no-gooding-est baddie around while doing the least amount of work possible, which is to say it's a puzzle game where a single well-placed bullet can ricochet around each level to take out all your hapless, helpless victims. Just use your mouse to aim and fire, you no-goodnik, using the dotted line trajectory to help plan where your bullet will go, and hopefully where it'll end up, and remember... spare no-one, not even the women and children! It's the sort of thing we've seen before in games like Ricochet Kills, but Ruffian! focuses on aiming and pulling off some pretty impressive trick shots, and with only a handful of bullets in each stage, things get tricky in a hurry. A lot of the game's appeal comes from its fantastic old-timey presentation, with its highly stylized visuals and attention to detail in everything from the sound-effects to the way they're represented graphically. While the gameplay doesn't really offer any surprises after a handful of levels, Ruffians! emphasizes going for the gold by offering up a slew of challenging achievements, such as completing certain levels in a specific number of shots. It's a fun facelift for a familiar formula, and one pulled off with style and flair. Not that you'd appreciate such things, you ruffian, you.

Play Ruffian!

Great music and presentation and atmosphere and had high hopes for this because I like shooter games. Maybe it's my PC but it seemed inconsistent in that sometimes I'd knock off two of three targets and progress to the next level, and sometimes I'd knock off two of three targets and wouldn't progress. Or, I'd hit all targets but they didn't fall off their platforms and I wouldn't progress, so wasn't sure if there was some other solution to that particular level I was overlooking.
