Okay here's my quick review.

This plays like most sniper games...well sort of. Er...well not really...You use the accelerometer to aim, and there's a "steady" button. However...

The crosshairs shake around really bad, which is by design. But even when I go into steady mode the thing starts to wobble around.

Your enemies appear onscreen for 5 or 10 seconds, then, rather than walking or running to another spot, they simply disappear! They then magically reappear at a random spot in your field of view. There is no warning as to when they will vanish. You may end up firing into thin air and wasting a shot.

The enemies are not animated. The gun sounds aren't really great, but they'll do. There are no settings for accelerometer sensitivity or orientation..

The game is ad supported. Hey it's free so it may be worth a try. Personally, I know there are better sniper games to be found.
