Shooting Showdown [Free, Univ] | Head-to-head virtual reality shootout

What's up TA!

We had so much success with our Affliction thread that we're giving it another go. Show us some enthusiasm and I'll hook you up with a promo code and challenge you to a match! If you can beat me, a shiny prize will be all yours.

Our new universal app -- Shooting Showdown -- is coming Thursday the 26th. It's an online, head-to-head, virtual reality shooting range. This is the latest installment in our Showdown franchise, which means it's packed full of sweat-enducing competitive action. Soccer Showdown, the last release, has over 1 million users, and is one of the most popular Soccer apps on the App Store.

Ask questions, make suggestions...the works. We added a ton of features to Affliction based on dialogue in the TA thread.

Thanks, Sawyer! Great to hear from you again! It's gyroscope controlled and includes some of the same weapons. Otherwise...nope . Affliction was a survival game. Shooting Showdown, like Soccer Showdown, is a competitive multiplayer app. It's all about head-to-head online play. We've also made some major changes to our engine...it's been rebuilt from the ground up.

The graphical engine is completely new. Weapons show on screen, there's muzzle flash, bullet tracers, and lots more. And, most importantly, we tackled people's biggest complaint with Affliction" the fact that you have to rotate 360 degrees to play. Shooting Showdown takes place entirely in front of you, so you can enjoy the full virtual reality gyro controls without rotating your body.

More like Insta-free-download, as the game will be free. We'll do a couple pre-release promo code races too, and you're officially on the list.

Thanks guys. I've added both of you to the promo list. At some point today I'll send you a PM, and the first person to respond with their Game Center name will get promo-ified.

I used to love Soccer Showdown and it's still on my phone, though I haven't played in a while. Hopefully this game is just as good
