App Review No. 19 Sniper Shooter

Strong points:
Lots of levels
Lots of guns 
Great (and not so great) puns 
If you wait long enough then the game gives you the gun to reach the next level enabling free flowing gameplay
Good updates

Weak Points:
Controls are very sensitive or not sensitive enough

Can be very frustrating as if you mess up once then goodbye 3 stars

In-depth Review:

Release Dates:

World Wide: 29th April 2013

Gryroscope to aim and touch to fire

This app is good in the fact that it is a great pick up and play game but also has quite a lot of content. Two things that don't always go hand in hand. In it you play as a new sniper charged with getting rid of criminals and (for some reason) celebrities and famous historical figures.

There are 12 level packs in total as well as a survival and a multiplayer. But you have to play through the main levels before you unlock the survival. Multiplayer is either a random match over the internet or with friends on Facebook (it would be nice if you could use gamecenter as well).

You control your gun by using the iPhones gyroscopic controls and matching up the scope with the enemy and bang! The target is dead. There are a few types of guns and level types such as rapid fire and a few added physics such as wind and distance. These add to the content but not as much as the next point.

The stars are back. While tried and tested they do add to the content of the game. To get more stars requires less fails. Then there are the completions objectives. These require an extra sensitive hand and a lot of patience, and I mean a LOT of patience.

Overall this game is a great FREE app that has good pick up and play capabilities.
