Battle your friends or the computer as you compete to be the last tank standing in this new take on the classic artillery game genre.
iShoot features over thirty different weapons including shells, missiles, cluster bombs, and nuclear weapons which blast huge holes in the destructible photorealistic landscapes. Bury your opponents under a Portable Mountain only to watch them escape using the Excavator and repay the favor!
As of version 2.0, iShoot now includes a feature which allows to edit game's rules, such as how much health the tanks have, how much money you receive per round, and which landscapes are enabled.
The Weapon Editor allows you to create, edit, and delete weapons. You can simply remove weapons you don't like, tweak the damage and price of existing weapons, and create brand new weapons from scratch. How about a cluster bomb of Tactical Nukes, or a rapid-fire U238 Penetrator machine gun?
iShoot is playable by 1 to 4 people, either via local WiFi or "hot seat" play.
What's New in Version 2.1.2
Fixed some issues with network play
I really enjoyed the free version so paid for the upgrade to get the additional weapons and scenery, but mostly to get the ability to move your tank. Other than those things, gameplay is pretty much the same. There are other features with the paid version, but they don't effect gameplay. However, the paid version comes with something else the free version doesn't have: a VERY annoying bug. To fire your weapon you hold down the Fire button and a power bar will appear. The longer you hold the button down, the further to the right the moves, indicating the strength of your shot. The more to the right, the more power the shot will have when you let off the Fire button. This, combined with proper aim, is crucial in hitting your target. In the free version this worked flawlessly. In the paid version the power bar "sticks" when you let go of the Fire button. As in, the tank doesn't fire and the bar just stays there frozen. You have to tap the fire button again and sometimes twice to get it to fire. This increases your shot power beyond what you originally intended. It doesn't happen all the time, which kinda makes it worse because you don't know whether to adjust for it or not. I estimate it happens around 30 to 40 percent of the time. It's very frustrating at times; I hope they fix it soon.
Extremely high replay value.
This is probably the game app I spent the most time on compared to all the other 100+ apps that I have even when comparing it to such apps as Doodle Jump, Gun Bros, COD Zombies and Angry Birds. Not only did I manage to place time in utilizing all the in-game weapons to their fullest, but it also inspired me to make a game mode containing a variety of custom weapons in which I included 70+ unique weapons such as an AK-47 using a penetrator with 9 damage and then a machine gun with 30 rounds using small explosion 3 as a firing sound 5 angle variance and 2 power variance,
A machine gun which fires off a line of 80 ground bursts with 0 angle variance but 50 power variance in which when shot at a high angle at moderate power, can cover an entire battleground with ground bursts that deploy 2 shells at 20 power, both creating dirt balls dealing 35 damage each and the ultimante weapon which fires 8 groups of 31 insta-kill skylances each with a blast radius of 25 with an angle variance of 180 and a power variance of 50, having the potential to kill everyone across the span of seven maps when shot straight up. The possibilies are endless with this game and for the price of $.99, you can't possibly go wrong with this. A definite buy for all Ipod users.
I found this game amazingly fun. I first heard of it in the newspaper because Ethan Nicolas lives in my town. Anyways, this game is a perfect tank game. The weapons editor is amazing. There are literally hundreds of weapons you can make. This is the perfect game to play on a long drive with friends. You can even play your friends over wifi if you are on the same network. There is also the option to edit or create rulesets. You can control how much money is given out and everything else. I bought this game when it was $1.99. Now it is only $0.99 which makes it even more worth it. There are a few minor glitches that do not harm gameplay. The newest update also brought online scoring. I highly recommend this game to anyone who owns an iPod touch or iPhone.
