Rico: Mercenary for Hire

By Raphael Salgado

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.



Take on the role of Rico, a hired mercenary and expert sharpshooter, as you accept challenging assignments to take out as many targets as you can!

Armed with a powerful gun and special ammo, use the environment at hand to ricochet your bullets against the walls and platforms. The more targets you take out with a single shot, or the more your bullets ricochet around the area, the higher your earnings become.

But, be careful! Many of these environments can be tricky and may take a combination of precision, patience, speed, or luck to succeed. With your earnings, you can buy more bullets and/or upgrade your gun to take on even more difficult assignments.

Customer Reviews

Shoot, man!

It's a good rubber-bullet target practice type of game. You are either encouraged or chided on your performance by your employer. You don't want to be on the short end of the latter. While the game dynamics are fine as you shoot silhouetted figures, you can feel cut at the knees as your enjoyment will be short-lived as the available levels are minimal before forking over some cash for added levels. "Shoot", indeed.


Need to add wide screen support for iPad. Screen is too large for the iPad and can not be adjusted to fit

Good game
