Sombrero: Spaghetti Western Mayhem is a side-scrolling multiplayer arena game similar to Samurai Gun or Super Smash Bros. by indie developer Pixelmetal. 2-4 players will be able to select from over two dozen distinct characters and sling lead at one another. The game features local and online multiplayer, a variety of power-ups, and the promise of future content updates. Although the developer feels that controllers work best for the game, it will nonetheless feature keyboard & mouse controls if that’s how you’d like to play.
The game is launching with four different game gameplay modes. The classic multiplayer modes Deathmatch and Capture the Flag are there, of course. Loot has the various outlaws in the game trying to grab up as many bags of money as possible before time runs out. “Banditos” is similar to King of the Hill-style gameplay; players must get their greasy mitts on the Golden Monkey Idol and hold onto it as long as possible. Of course, other players will be keen on liberating it from the competition whether it’s with bullets or boomerangs.
