Skeet Shoot is a very crude shooting game for the Atari 2600. It only real value is in its rarity.
Your little man can move left and right at the bottom of the screen. The trap is located in the middle. It shoots targets into the air, and you have to try and blast them with your shotgun.
From the manual (spelling errors and poor formatting retained).
Pull! The trap springs, and the clay pegeon -- alive with flight -- soars away
from you at an unexpected angle. With a fluid motion, you raise your gun to
your shoulder as you pivot toward you target. You lead your pegeon, finger on
the trigger...your mind racing...challenged by the speeding target before you.
Will your reactions be too slow? Too fast? Or right on course? Suddenly you
squeeze the trigger!
Legend says that this title was written by Ed Salvo when he was only 17 years old.
The box to this title (you do know that games with boxes and manuals are worth more, right?), shows a watercolor scene of two women in a duck filled field near a lake.
