The post-apocalypse has a distinctly Western flavor in this online shooter from developer Emotional Robots. Warm Gun is a full-on first-person shooter powered by the Unreal Engine. You’ll be able to choose between four character classes and get your frag on in five different maps, all of which feature various traps and triggers for causing extra harm to your opponents. There’s no single-player campaign, but if online competition is what you love, Warm Gun looks like a promising new title. Warm Gun will run on third-generation devices or newer, and is a universal app.
Price: Around $6.99
