Customer Reviews

Love the game, although limited

I love this game I've had it for a little over 3 years, and I still think it's one of my better if not best apps. This game is about comically shooting deer, bears, etc. I like how it is simple, just tapping to shoot, and that there is no blood cause I personally don't like having blood in the game. The graphics are quite great for it's time, it's also pretty realistic with the bear occasionally attacking you while the deer would always flee. It is really rewarding to kill an animal, which seems easier when it is on the move.

There is some unnecessary limits though, that prevent me from ranking this a perfect 5. There is a variety of guns and accessories to choose from, but require a lot more money that I have. Also it is sometimes very hard to kill the wildlife, even when I use the steady mode. The aiming system looks as if the gun shot would fire in the dead center of the deer, but right when I shoot, it seems as if I had missed by a mile. I don't really know if this is a glitch but either way it is still an app very much worth getting (love that it's free).

Good, but...

The gameplay is good overall. Intuitive controls. The tutorial could be better. My game glitched the first time that I opened it, but hasn't done so again since. On the GPS screen where you track the animals, my blue circle froze in place and, with the crappy directions, it wasn't until I reloaded the game one last time (if this hadn't worked this was about to be deleted) that I could see that the blue circle was your hunter's area of movement. After the initial slip up, it has run perfectly. I really enjoy the hunting simulation, but the gear is over priced in hopes that you will spend actual money buying it. You can get by easily enough without resorting to that, however don't expect to take out your first moose with an assault rifle for free. All in all I'd say this is a very enjoyable hunting sim where the pros more than outweigh the cons.

Deer Hunter Challenge version not the easy version

For those of you familiar with Glu and the Hunter series, this is the Challenge version and it will require a little more than just point and shoot out of you. (consider that for anyone writing bad reviews) There are several versions (safari and hd) offering different interests, but challenge is going to make you consider your hunt. While you can buy your weapons, you can also earn them by progressing through the hunts.
Gameplay is integrated reality based with great graphics in a tablet style interactive interface built on sense styled platform. In order to kill, you must land a kill shot in a strategic trajectory and the game is stylized based on the weapon and animal. Frankly I find this a pleasant alternative to chucking birds at pigs.
