App description: The western gun range game thats a cutout above the rest
Meet Sheriff McGyro, the lawman with a difference, when McGyro aims his trusty pistol at someone he imagines them as a plywood cutout. It makes bringing law and order to the Wild West just that little bit easier.

Press Quotes
The pacing is just right, and the controls are more or less perfect TouchArcade

I cant recommend this game enough 7 Bit Arcade

DRAW!
Use the perfect gyroscopic controls to aim your pistol then get shootin! Take on gangs of enemies across 5 levels, each with 3 stages.

WOODEN WILD WEST
McGyro brings his own special brand of justice to the entire Wild West. Youll be carving up cutouts on horseback, from the carriage of a speeding train, as part of a wagon chase and more!

THEYRE DEAD WOOD
Youll need to use your quick draw and steady aim to take on a variety of enemies from lowly bandits and deadly Indians, to alien invaders! Use your skills and the way of the gun to turn them all to splinters.

Thank you for taking notice of our game. I'm Andrey, Creative Director of the studio behind McGyro. I will gladly answer questions should any arise. We are a small team and our game is small as well, but we hope the players will enjoy it none the less.

Is there a calibration option for the tilt controls?

There is an in-game recalibration button. It centers the aim.

Game Impressions

First off I must admit I am loving the game. I am not much of a tilt control fan, but it feels pretty solid. There is an option to turn off gyro and use relative touch. Controls feel solid both touch and gyro, does thake some time to get used to but should be fairly quick.
Graphics are solid sound not too sure because playing at work so using mute.
I have only played for 10 minutes, but already hooked. I will add more to the impressions later this evening after I get some quality time.
Overall for the price of $.99 highly recommended and it's universal. The only negative thus far is this game may be lost with the highly publicized IB 2 and COD Zombies.
If you are a fan of shooting games get it, this is worth the price of admission and such a great deal for a fun solid shooter.

EDIT:
After investing more time I am loving the game even more. This time on my iPad 2 and the controls are excellent. Having the ability to reset the gyro is very helpful. The action is engaging and challenging, but fair. The sound is solid and the game play is fun. I stand by my initial impression, the game is well worth the price, and the fun you will get is by far more than the .99 price tag. Awesome job and hope this game will not get lost with the big game releases this week.

Of all the games my 4 yr old daughter picked to buy this week, this is one of here favorites. It's crazy I'm 33yrs and when I was young I never even dreamed of anything like the games they come out with. We played with slingshots and GI Joes and a big clunky game boy. Kids these days are so lucky and they can use the iPods and iPhones as good as anyone. I hope it helps their brains develope. Kids are crazy haha.
