Needs improvement

Fast. Fast rounds, fast gameplay, fast matchmaking.
Easy to use.

Poor production quality. The game looks terrible. The player models are pretty good, the maps are laid out pretty well, but the textures are muddy, the lighting is poorly done and the animations are amateurish.
Sounds design is pretty bad. The guns sounds are hollow. There are almost no player sounds so you can't hear anyone come up on you. Very little ambient sound in the maps.
Bad UI. It's functional, but it's ugly and it doesn't have a good layout. I found my self constantly crouching or switching weapon modes by mistake while I was trying to look around.
No vertical gameplay, can only aim horizontally.

For a "free" game it's pretty decent. It definitely needs some art polish, and there are better control setups for FPS games on iOS out there. But it's fun enough and it's fast. Matchmaking only takes a few seconds. The gameplay is almost too fast though. I found myself dying every couple seconds. Shoot outs were not possible, if someone sees you first your dead and vis versa. Limiting aiming to the horizontal axis takes away some of the skill needed to play a multiplayer FPS like this. I'm not sure that's a good thing. And OMG is this thing hard on the eyes. Lake Effect needs to hire an artist. A good one. Maybe two or three. I give it a middle of the pack rating because it's not total rubbish, but there are better FPS games on the App Store. Even free ones.


Very cool game! Basically has to ways to play single player which is sorta like combat training on black ops except for a iPod device; the second being multiplayer both have four game types which are really fun and addicting! Single player has really good Ai so I recommend trying to kill them from long distance as well as on a more open map until you improve your aiming and get the controls down love team death match and goat game type the most the game is best played on Canal map it's more open and makes game easier. You earn new weapons by leveling up level up by playing and more features such as gun skins and more customization options! Good for playing with friends! allows you to invite friends from gamecenter who have the app to join your games i believe it might fix the problems with the slow multiplayer loading crossing fingers! And if you don't like this game I also recommend brothers in arms 2 it's more of a COD 2 feel and multiplayer loads quicker! I got this game looking for a multiplayer shooter and was 80% satisfied with game bth haven't tried the multiplayer yet cuz I didn't want to wait to play but look forward to trying out how I do against other players! Hope you like it

Apple's Only Update Strategy, Buy a New One!

Crashing was a problem a long while ago, then as you can see from my earlier review, there was a fix. Now, it's started crashing again, but only intermittently, and usually when playing one of the ex-pak scenarios, that have more graphics. This seems to be the new normal with a whole bunch of games that used to run perfectly well on my iPod 4th Gen. This is my 4th iPod, and once apps begin to crash you're forced to buy the next Gen device and this seems to be the only upgrade path available from Apple. It's little wonder that the other 'A' is making such huge inroads into the the market, and proving their longer term value by having the same apps, running much more efficiently and using less ram with virtually every update, where I have to keep deleting apps from my iPod constantly, just to stay level.

As stated in various posts:

If your App keeps crashing then:

A. Delete from iPod, keep Game Center
B, Reload the App.
C. Start playing again!

Trigger Fist is without question the finest of what I call the Über Shooter's.

Please, keep the controls just as they are ~ Why mess with Pure Perfection!
