Sega brings back the classic gun fight in this light gun shooting game. Normally sold as 2 cabinets for head to head play but can be played solo in story mode. The innovation on this game is freedom of movement.
In most gun games, players are locked into a set path, meaning the game moves the player from location to location, without the player have much choice in the matter.
Too spicy introduces a double foot pedal system. Which gives the player options and freedom. One pedal moves the player left the other one right. Also being a shoot-out game there is plenty of places to hide for cover. Thus making the game a mano-a-mano fight to the death where the player must outthink, outshoot and outmaneuver his opponent.
The object of the head to head game is of course to kill your opponent. Each player is given a life bar, which can be decreased by the following: Combo shots - A number of rounds hitting your opponent in quick succession, Head shot - A skill shot hitting your opponent in the head, Environmental Damage - Shoot an explosive device near your opponent (oil drum, car, etc).
Story mode follows the same rules, however it is a series of solo missions, linked together by the story.
