A downloadable game for Windows

A character I made for another game has taken control of my new project because it wants it's own game finished. This new project was the early design of a arcade Light Gun game that had a western theme.

The character, Xen, has turned evil, and is holding my engine hostage! I've uploaded a demo and quickly coded in a way to beat Xen. You just have to click on him, the sights should help you. If he goes out of range press Q or E to look left or right. You can also shoot his bullets out of the sky so they don't hit you!

I also managed to get in a way for you to cancel his attacks if you click him enough to times before he fires, but I'm not the only one coding things in. Xen added in a lose condition, having your hp reach 0. It seems to be a box on the left that shrinks letting you know how much HP you have left. I think the value starts at 10.

Well, that should be everything. Good luck! Please help me save my new project!

Mouse moves the sights, and click shoots.
Q and E look left and right.

Update 1.6:
Xen grows more powerful. He's got a new attack, and takes a lot more hits to cancel now.

Update 1.5:
Added a Lifebar
Colors were added to the stage
Added a laser effect to help the player see where they're hitting

Update 1.2: Added title screen (Which Xen quickly defaced), and web player build.

Update 1.1:
Changed looking around from Q and E to right mouse + move or middle mouse on the side you the screen you wanna turn on.
