You'll want to get up on your two feet for this one - Major GUN for Android is an epic first person shooter game that relies on your movement to aim your weapon in-game. By turning on the spot with your phone at arms length, the camera in the game will react accordingly, giving an augmented reality feel to the game experience.
Creating a fun FPS game on mobile devices is no easy feat. Nailing the controls is incredibly important, and if you do not get it right, you'll end up with something that is just down right frustrating. This game manages to brilliantly showcase the potential of augmented reality first person games. The camera reacts incredibly well with your movements, and you'll find that it's easy to line up headshots like you're a world class sniper.
The gameplay itself is also very fun in this game. It's an on-the-rails shooter, so you will not have to do any movement yourself. Instead, you will rely on the game to move your character for you, allowing you to focus on the shooting element of the game instead. Each time you reach a shooting location, you will need to take out the enemies in the area as quickly as possible. Those with fast trigger fingers may even want to try and pick up the bonuses such as coins, upgrades and power-ups as they fight.
On top of the great gameplay, the graphics in this game are superb; and its animation and sound quality are also top notch.
If you are looking for a fun on-the-rails shooter, it really doesn't get much better than this. Major GUN can be downloaded for free, although there are some IAPs; but this doesn't restrict your ability to have fun in any way.
