The graphics are absolutely stunning, but I found the shooting system to be quite difficult, but then again I suck at all those games.=

There is already a big thread about Iron Sight. But I will tell you a bit about it. It is basically like iShoot or worms in 3D with mechanical robots. It is a turned based game, so you take it in turns to move and shoot. There are plenty of different rockets ranging from cluster missiles to small nukes. The graphics are excellent with nice textures and water ( I especially like the sunset level). But the best thing about it is the online multiplayer, which isn't very active at the moment, but I was still able to join a game. It is really fun blasting the crap out of strangers across the world and there is a nice chat function also. The nice thing is that you can control more than one robot ( up to about 4 I believe, depending on the map). The sound is another good part of the game with suitable action-type music and good sound effects with robot movements and explosions.
So yeah, just a brief summary of the game. I would really recommend it, especially as it is only 59p ($0.99) on the app store. So if you are interested, buy it!

I got this game and it is stunning. There are multiplayer/solo/campaign options and everything is polished. Just imagine playing a 3d version of Worms, mechwarrior style! At a dollar, this is a big bang for the buck.
