The first-person shooter controls actually work surprisingly well, once you get acclimated to them. Scoot your thumb around on the screen to move, tilt to aim, tap the center crosshair (or, in an odd choice, tap the back of the phone) to fire. It feels unfamiliar at first, but it's fundamentally solid."
