it's too late now.
People need to take responsibility and accountability for their own submissions. I am not here to pick up your slack. Sorry to sound so harsh but let this be a lesson.

Awww.... I didn't know you could do that, after I posted, which was 2am where I live I went to sleep.  I fixed it and PM'ed you like you asked.  Please put mine in the competition.

and just in case anybody doesn't know, you can actually edit your own submissions. I'm not doing this for you. You're all smart enough to figure such a simple task.

less than 30 minutes to go lazy bums!

I PM'ed you but not sure if it went through, just in case here is a link to my fixed pixel.

Attention!
Please make sure you are abiding by the rules of the challenge. Particularly the colour count and size parts. I have gone through each submission and removed almost half from the challenge so far

And it was partly facetious, though it IS the only lightgun game I've ever played or recall.

Jal:  I searched the site for "showdown", it was in the first three results : P

Metaru:  There were lightgun games other than duckhunt? : O

I was just thinking about cowboys the other day, I'll enter. 

user
DJD (Level 4 Button Man) @ 8/13/2007 09:59
Ah, cure beat me too it. I was going to say I demand xion to enter using that same style and charm. Absolutely stunning.


This is a wonderful challenge, good luck to everyone!

Another 'retro' Example

omg, I spent 30 minutes looking for that second link.

This isn't quite a showdown, but xion's mockup is still western and a great reference.

Also, this is a great reference too.

Gas:  The old American west.  Cowboys havin' one on one gunfights in the middle of the streets at high noon.

when you say old fashioned, do you mean this? ; )

user

Guns, dust, west, cowboyz, dawn... tension.

user

i might try this

Showdown as a shootout?

user
Stickman (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 8/13/2007 03:26
Aaahhh...it's a shame that animation isn't allowed. Small sizes like this make anims a little easier to handle.

@Gas: I think it's a showdown such as Clint Eastwood vs Lee Van Cleef cowboy style

Could you describe it in other words please? I don't get it.
