Guns, gore & cannoli – review

My 11-year old brother came over to have some fun. We had some spare time and decided to play a videogame with local co-op. He found ‘Guns, Gore & Cannoli’ for €2,49 for sale on Steam. I bought the game and together we played.

The game

Guns, gore & cannoli is a 2D adventure game. The player has been hired to save a hostage from some gangsters from a rival gang.

What doesn’t help is that the city has been poisoned and most of the civilians have been turned into zombies. According to them, humans have to die!

You run through this game shooting zombies, gangsters, and a few bosses within three hours. If you have more skill than we had, you will likely run through this game within two hours.

Local co-op

As I said, we played guns, gore, and cannoli in local co-op. We used two Xbox one controllers to play with. In the menu, it was kind of annoying that in the menu the controller reacted to both controllers. But that was only in menus.

The game automatically gives both players their own appearance. Also when player 1 picks up a weapon, both players get it, and the same for player 2. I was very very happy with this because in lots of co-op games just one person gets the weapon.

Art style

In the art style, we basically see peoples from around 1950. Gangsters are still wearing suits and hats and other gangsters have been turned into zombies. The way this 2D art looks and the chosen style is a pleasure to see and both of us really enjoyed this.


The sound in this game suits the game very well. All dialogue was done with voice acting making the game feel of high quality. Voice acting is something I don’t see often in games like this.


So we played through this game within about 3 or 3.5 hours but that is partly because our skill wasn’t so great. Evethoughgh our 15-year difference in age we both enjoyed the game just just as much and we both pointed out the same stuff when we talked about what we liked and didn’t like in this game.

Our rating: 8.5/10 – great game, but short experience
