Known in Japan as Ganpuru or Gunple, Gunman’s Proof is an action/adventure game similar to The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, but in a Wild West setting. The game was released exclusively in Japan due to the declining interest in the Super NES during this time in North America and Europe. So, unfortunately this little retro gem slipped though the hands of western gamers and was lost to the tides of time, until eventually, years later, it was translated and a translation patch was released. With this recent translation patch available you can now play this game in English on any SNES or SNES-compatible console.
Two meteors have fallen on a small island near the west coast of North America. Strange things started to happen like monsters suddenly attacking people while leaving behind a message that said “demiseed”. One of the aliens introduces himself as Zero, the Space Sheriff, and explains that an intergalactic criminal named Demi has escaped from justice and is hiding somewhere on the island, causing toubles. Zero possesses the player’s body; allowing him to do tasks that are only possible as a part of a human being. Buying and upgrading weapons is essential to defeating the monsters once and for all. While featuring traditional dungeon-crawling components and many enemies to dispose of in real-time combat, weapons include pistols, shotgun, machine gun, and even a flamethrower (all with infinite ammo). There are also special attacks than can be done with all the weapon types.
