MacLife Hands-on Impressions: Silent Scope for iPhone

MacLife: "Konami's latest iPhone foray, Silent Scope, is due for release later in April. The 1999 arcade semi-classic puts you behind the sniper's trigger, charged with rescuing the U.S. president and his family from a distance. I recently put my finger to the test, checking out the nearly-ready game.

The iPhone commands are fairly simple, scaling the arcade cabinet's rifle controller into tap-happy play. As nondescript, black-clad villains lean out from distant rooftops, you double-tap to zoom into the scope perspective. Often, I tapped nearby, but still far enough away to lose all context when zoomed in. Helpfully, the game shows pointer arrows towards the baddies. Swipes realign the perspective, and single taps shoot."

The story is too old to be commented.
