    What is it? Shooter is a new AppStore game from Paramount Pictures. As the name suggests, this app involves shooting. Based upon the film, Shooter, you play the role of Bob Lee Swagger, one of the world's great marksmen.

    What makes it good? Well firstly, there are many different modes to play, weapons to unlock and also weapon add-ons. Secondly, im glad that finally a good app has come from a film. And thirdly, its shooting. What is there not to like?

    Game Modes

    There are two differnt modes of play in Shooter. Arcade mode and Story mode. In Story mode you have set tasks and missons to complete, sent from your "HQ". In arcade mode, you have the choice on which map to play on and basicly just have to shoot things freely.

    Story Mode

    Controls.

    The controls are kind of the down side of this game. Due to the nature of this game and accuracy being essential, it is very hard to use the accelorometer to control your weapon. However this could be seen as making the game more realistic in order to show how a real sniper is not just as easy as it looks. You shoot by pressing the shoot button, reload by swiping the reload button to the left and then can hold your breath to keep the cross-hair dead still.

    Gameplay

    In the story mode, you start by finding your target by using your binculars and then 'locking onto' your enemy.

    You then get put into the shooting mode, shown on the controls picture, to kill your targets.

    Overview: Personaly i feel that Shooter is a great shooting games. Its gameplay is simple yet challenging. The graphics are fairly good and the only thing letting it down are the controls.

    Price: £0.59

    My rating: 4/5 : Good fun game but controls are a let down. However for only 59p its a must have game for your device

    Nice review. Might get it. Little typo here and there, but barely noticable, only if you're a grammar freak like me.
