My love affair with Star Trek began about the time of Star Trek the Next Generation when, in between series, I needed something sci-fi to keep up with. Thus, I got my hands on re-ran 1966-1969 Original espisodes, screenplay-adapted novels and plastic models. It wasn’t long before I dreampt of sidling to others of my kind at Star Trek conventions and lost my discomfit at being called a ‘Trekkie’ or ‘Trekker’.
Paramount has just released what could be their best App Store offering to date in Shooter. If you enjoyed watching the movie starring Mark Walberg and love Sniper/Shooting games, then the surprisingly deep Shooter is a must have for your iPhone/iPod Touch. (did I mention that the intro price is only $0.99?)
Shooter – The Official Movie Game is one of the first true 1st person shooters to be released on the iPhone and iPod Touch. As Gunnery Sergeant Bob Lee Swagger, you must clear your name after being accused of an assassination attempt on the President. Stealthy pursuit, a steady hand and nerves of steel will allow you to eliminate those responsible.
We previously looked at i Sniper, a decent game that was probably the best of its kind when it was first released. With the arrival of Shooter, there’s no question who’s the new king of the (Sniper) hill. Impressions and screenshots after the jump.
