To kick things off, i made a small app out of the reload mechanics which will be a main feature of the final game. The target was to bring accurate gun controls to a medium which makes them intuitive. Meaning you can modify each part of your revolver that is required to make it ready to shoot. You can p.e. drag the bullets into the chambers, spin the revolver and cock the hammer. But first, heres a quick overview of the app:

The Main Menu
slight changes in the main menu

It is a tribute to the intro of the first spaghetti western ever, "a fistful of dollars",which is one of the main inspirations for this game's style. I tried to keep it as puristic and simple as possible.

The Game
MiniGame interface

The only rule is to fire two bullets as fast as possible, but the twist is that there are still empty shells in the revolver and you need to reload it first. The Timer in the top right corner defines your score, so you better hurry.

The Tutorial
one of the 8 tutorial pages

For those who are not familiar with revolvers, there is a quick tutorial on how things work. Its a simple 8-step guide containing some tips and variations you might consider to set the best score.

and well, thats pretty much it. You can post your highscores, feedback and other stuff in the comments.

Currently the minigame is only aviable for windows phone 8 / 8.1, but iOs and Android versions might come later.
