Indian Battle is a fixed shooter arcade game, that had been released by Taito Corporation in 1980; it utilizes an Intel 8080 microprocessor (running up at 2 MHz) while using discrete circuitry and a Texas Instruments SN-76477 for sound. The player must use a 2-way joystick to take control of a cowboy at the bottom of the screen, with a single button, to make him fire shots at various types of Indians (who fire and throw their arrows, tomahawks and rocks back at him) - and all arrows are worth 10 points in this title while tomahawks are worth 30. Rocks, however, are worth a randomly-generated amount of points, while regular Indians are worth 100; Indians on horseback are worth 150 points, and condors are worth 200. Every third level is a bonus level where the cowboy has to show his skill in the lasso - and for every Indian he lassos you'll receive 100 bonus points (there are 20 for a maximum of 2000).
