Shadowgun gets Retina support on new iPad, now $2.99
Shadowgun (TMA Review), one of the best third person shooters on iOS, has just been updated to support the new iPad’s 2048×1536 resolution. Not only does it get a nice bump up in res count, but it also gets 4x MSAA Anti Aliasing without sacrificing on performance. As such, the visuals will look even more stunning on the latest iPad. Meanwhile for other iDevice owners, this splendid shooter has received some minor bug fixes to improve upon the overall experience. The update is free for those who’ve already purchased the game, otherwise, Shadowgun can now be had for only $2.99 (down from $4.99).
The year is 2350, and corrupt intergalactic corporations are the rule of law, hiring bounty hunters and mercs to do their bidding. The best of the best are known as SHADOWGUNS.
SHADOWGUN puts you into the role of John Slade, the galaxy’s most infamous bounty hunter. Your mission: hunt down Dr. Edgar Simon, maniacal genius and leader of his own mutant army. Infiltrate Dr. Simon’s mountain fortress and fight his personal guard of cyborgs, battle droids, and genetically-enhanced humanoids. Using state-of-the-art weaponry, ships, and the assistance of S.A.R.A.—Slade’s personal android assistant—SHADOWGUN combines intense tactical combat with 3rd person action.
