Sniper Somali Strike

By Dootsy Development

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Capt. Tom Deom, 43, has been taken hostage by pirates who tried to hijack the U.S.-flagged Marsk Alabama. The Ventura county native is being held on a speed-boat that is heading towards Somalia's anarchic, gun-plagued shores.

Three snipers, three bullets, three dead Somali pirates?

Your Navy sharpshooters have just seconds to make their shots in choppy seas after dark.

Relive the dramatic rescue.

Can you do it?

Good luck! Rescue the hostage.

To Aim hold the device flat and tilt to move target.
Good luck you will need it.

Customer Reviews

Good game, need to know how to play first though( I will explain). Also 1:06 seconds!

First, ignore my nickname, my first review was of sniper-x and I thought you could change your nickname for every review. Okay, this is a very polished mini-game. There is no tutorial, however. You can switch snipers( a tip is to designate one sniper per pirate and rapidly switch between snipers and fire) by clicking on their picture on the top left corner. Also, hold the iPod to the floor and tilt to aim. Once you get the hang of shooting and switching quickly and fireing again this game can be quite addicting. One glitch Is that you need to shoot one "warning shot" to alert the pirates and to be able to kill then. All in all, a good game. Also, I got 1:06 seconds by using my tactic of switching between snipers and having the other snipers' crosshairs on the pirate already so when you switch snipers you are already in position to shoot.

Fun App - Tip hold device towards floor to help aim

After about 20 plays I figured out how to aim. Then I completed 2 head shots, 1 body shot and 4 total shots in 5:07 seconds. However, I understand the frustration on this list of new users. I found the trick is I needed to hold my iPhone towards the floor. A help page with tips will probably boost interest in this app. I need to do the same thing for my iPhone games to provide the tip to hold the iPhone at eye level. The concept for the game is great, graphics are cool, and I expect to see greater games in the future from this group.

Sniper tech demo

Pretty tight.
Not a whole lot going on here other than sniping 3 baddies on a moving boat. That's okay, since it is a polished minigame that may lure you into improving your own, or besting other's time scores.
