Howdy partner! Smokin' Barrels 2 for Android is a gun' slinging timekiller adventure with all sorts of game features to make you yell Yee-haw!
Jokes aside, this game is incredibly fun, has unique gameplay elements and a bunch of content to keep things interesting for a long time. The base of this gameplay follows a sheriff who has set out to bring down any outlaws he meets on his way. As dishonorable as those outlaws may be, they just simply can't turn down an offer for a stand off, and this is where things will start to get exciting.
On each level, you will have a stand off against an outlaw. To play the game, you need to rest your finger in the corner of the screen and then quickly drag it to the target that appears on screen. There will be a countdown from three, and the target will appear after the countdown. The amount of damage you do on your enemy will depend on where you dragged your finger to on the target. If you're fast enough at drawing your weapon, you can even shoot him before he has a chance to shoot you.
This quick reflex based gameplay fits perfectly with the theme of the game, and it's always fun to try and battle it out against the different outlaws you meet throughout the game. When defeating outlaws and completing special objectives, you'll be rewarded with cash. The cash you earn can be spent in the town tavern on upgrades and special drinks that can restore your health. There are so many cool upgrades and quirky wild west themed items to purchase.
Smokin' Barrels 2 is incredibly fun and the concept is certainly unique. Whilst there are adverts in this game, there are absolutely no in-app purchases to deal with.
