Game Review: Contract Killer for iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch

[HTML1] As gun owners/writers go, I’m pretty non-violent. I’ve never shot another human being. I’ve never bagged a deer. Never shot anything larger than a dove, in fact. Even though I conceal carry, I don’t really believe, in my heart of hearts, I’ll ever have to shoot someone in self-defense. So I’m trying to figure […]

Game Review: High Noon STARS & STRIPES for iPhone

Listen up, buckaroo…if yer the kinda desperado that has a hankerin’ to drill some other sidewinder fulla lead, you gotta call ’em out for a shoot-out. But this is 2010. Unless you’re a Crip or a Blood, callin’ somebody out in the middle of town for a little gunplay’s gonna get the attention of the […]

Game Review: GunShot for the IPod/IPhone

My quest for the perfect gun range game continues with the iPod Touch/iPhone game GunShot. I’m looking for a game that gives me the look and feel of a real gun range, re-sized for my iPod. Something that provides the same kind of fun I have shooting holes in pieces of paper. In that respect, […]

Game Review – Deer Hunter 3D

Full disclosure: I am not a hunter. I have never killed a deer. Not that I wouldn’t. Just never had the opportunity to do it. I have been on a couple of dove hunts, which was fun – kinda like fishing, but with noise and violence. But as far as deer hunting goes, my direct […]

Game Review – Target Practice

If you’ve been to the range lately, you’ve probably spent time getting up close and personal (or not-so-up-close and personal) with your favorite flavor of paper target. Clip it to the holder, and run that puppy downrange, then it’s “shooter ready” and we’re off to the races. But paper targets, live ammo, and practice time […]

Game Review – iSniper 3D

You’re at work. You’re bored. Time for a mental health break, and you you’ve got a Jones to revel in your inner shooter. Time to get down and dirty with iSniper 3D, a first-person shooter for the iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch, Apple’s triple-threat platform that is increasingly competitive vis a vis the Wii, Playstation, and XBox 360.

Game Review – Shadowland: The Sniper

But is it fun? Well, I’d give it a thumbs up, simply because it seems to be a great deal more realistic than most single-person shooters that I’ve played. It is a little frustrating though, simply because the bad guys don’t take long to start shooting, once you’ve gotten through the training set. And of course, you can’t beat the price. Which is a good thing, as reviewers in the iTunes store have complained that the mission is fairly short, and there’s nothing to do, once you’ve completed the mission.
