Are the targets animated or cardboard cutouts?

I just played the arcade mode. It's definitely better than the other sniper games in the app store...and worth the 99c. What's different than the PC version...is that in the brief level I played, there is no navigation or walking anywhere. The level starts with you looking at a scene from far away. The screen shows areas that have red circles around them. You click on a circle and it zooms into an area that has about 5 bad guys. You have to shoot them quickly before they start shooting back. The worst part missing about this game is being able to choose a hiding spot so that the bad guys accuracy is lessened (this is the critical job of a marine sniper)...so the tactical elements I was really looking for don't seem to exist. But, I only played one game mode real quick to get an idea about what the game looks like. Graphics are good.

No they are deffo not cardboard cutouts They do indeed move...Only played 1 level so far but seems good so far...Bit similar to Shooter....So if you like that game then you may want to get this as only 59p/$0.99....

Ist level has you kill all enemies in different locations....Basically tap on highlighted area and then it zooms in like on Shooter with your sniper scope and it has your breathing on the left to steady yourself for shots and your fire trigger on the right...Scope the area and shoot to kill

Thats all i've played tho so far.....
