    Silent Scope Review

    Konami resurrects an arcade classic in its iDevice version of Silent Scope, a rail shooter that pits a group of terrorists against a super-sniper in a mission to save the President and the first family.

    Iron Sight Hands-On

    Iron Sight is a Turn-Based Strategy game based on Worms. You control the mechanical robots on your team to attack the other team turn by turn. You collect weapon upgrades which drop from the sky in the beautifully created 3D environment. There is a campaign AND an online multiplayer mode which should give that replay value an extra kick.

    Iron Sight is currently selling for 99 cents. It’s from Polarbit, the developer of Raging Thunder and Crash Nitro Kart 3D, a company with a lot of experience in 3D graphics.

    Check out the gameplay and aiming system in our Hands-On Preview Video below.

This is a pricey game, but you’re getting a pretty good value for the money. (more…)
