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.

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.
