SHADOWGUN Review - Android | iOS

SHADOWGUN's are bounty hunters/mercenaries hired by those in need of their skills and are the best at what they do. You're put into the role of a SHADOWGUN by the name of John Slade who is the number one merc available and is tasked by a corporation to hunt down Dr. Edgar Simon who once worked for the same corporation that hired Slade before he fled and began creating his own mutant army of experimental test subjects and droids. Because of the critical information that Dr. Simon holds, they need him either deal or alive, but most importantly, they need his brain. After Slade gets stranded on the planet where Dr. Simon has hidden himself, he proceeds to invade his fortress and fight against his massive army of humanoids and robots with the help of his android assistant, S.A.R.A.

This game is geared more towards higher end devices such as those utilizing Tegra 2, Mali-400, Adreno, and PowerVR but if you can run at least 800Mhz on your phone it should work fine. There is also a separate version of the game for Tegra 3 devices.

Pro's:
This is definitely one of the best developed games mainly for Android but iOS as well. The graphics are absolutely amazing along with a great storyline. There are 10 levels to add up to 6 hours of gameplay as well as an expansion pack featuring new enemies, levels, and guns. You have a small variety of weapons consisting of a machine gun, shotgun, grenade launcher, and rocket launcher. There are several different enemies such as "battle automated sentries, aerial drones, humanoids, cyborgs" along with a few level bosses who "flank, seek cover, and utilize teamwork to take you down". The controls function well and you have the ability to change the location if you don't like the way it's set up as well as an option for static controls which I prefer. You also have the ability to use "tactical maneuvers based upon actual military strategy". Overall, it's a great game that resembles Mass Effect quite a bit in my opinion and others.

Con's:
There's only issue I've had so far throughout the game which is somewhat major but doesn't stop you from being able to play the game. When you're running you sometimes get randomly stuck and the only way to move forward is to keep pushing the joystick up taking small steps at a time. It doesn't last forever but it can get you killed a lot. Other than that, the game is flawless but to some, that might be a concern.
Another potential downfall for some would be price, which is $4.99. It's worth it in my opinion but I managed to snag the game while it was .49 cents.

This video doesn't display the full quality of the game like you see in the screenshots I took. That's because I used an app to record my screen while I was playing so you could get an idea of the gameplay and quality was limited but I did the best I could managing 30fps.
