[REVIEW] iShoot Lite
iShoot Lite has been released for nearly one months now and its currently sitting 7th and 8th in the US and Australian App Stores respectively. While its full featured counterpart, iShoot, is currently first in the US App Store for $2.99.
The idea of iShoot Lite is simple, destroy your opponents. The game generates random landscapes in each new round of the game. You control a tank. Your tank starts with $5000. This money can be spent on different kinds of weapons. In iShoot Lite there are 6 different weapons to choose from, Mortars, Mega Mortars, Rollers, Stinger Missiles, Mini Cluster Bombs and Tactical Nukes. All have different characteristics and cost different amounts depending on their potency. In the full version of iShoot Lite, iShoot, there are 25 different weapons to choose from.
Before the game starts, the player needs to set some parameter. There can be a total of 4 players, human and CPU. The number of rounds to be played also needs to be set. This can be 5, 10, 15, 20 or an infinite amount for endless fun. The difficulty level also needs to be set between, Easy, Medium, Hard or Extreme. The default name for the player’s tank is ‘Player 1’. This can be customised to your liking as well as the tank colour and style. There are 14 colours ad 3 tank styles to choose from.
After the 4 tanks have been decided, the Weapons purchase screen appears where you can spend your initial $5000 on weapons. You don’t have to spend all of your money, or any at all, but I wouldn’t count on lasting too long if you don’t buy anything at all. Once the weapons selections have been finalised, the first round starts.
The game generates a random environment for the four tanks to play in. The game is very simple in the way it’s played. You choose your weapon by tapping the arrows left or right at the bottom of the screen. To set the angle of your fire, drag your finger in an arc around the top of your tank. For example, if your finger is directly above your tank, the angle its fires at will be straight up, 90°. When choosing your shooting angle, the wind factor also needs to be taken into account. The wind can affect where your shot ends up tremendously if you shoot rather high.
Once that’s all set up, all that’s left to do is fire your weapon. To do that, hold your finger over the ‘FIRE!’ button. A small meter will appear showing you the percentage of your tanks power you will be utilising when firing. When you’ve reached what you think is the right amount of power, release your finger from the button and your weapon will fire, hopefully upon an opponent.
Play continues like this until there is only one tank left rolling. Once the round is over, you’re awarded prize money. The longer you lasted in the previous round, the more prize money you’ll receive. You can then choose to spend some or all or none of that prize money on more weapons. After all purchases have been finalised, round two commence. The game continues like this until all rounds have been played, or in the case that you elected to play an infinite amount of rounds, it continues on forever.
The environments the game generates are nothing short of beautiful. They’re high in quality, rich in colour and look relatively real. But as you can imagine, they can be destroyed quickly and severely with the right weapons.
The computer controlled tanks occasionally ‘speak’ to you with random comments appearing above their tanks. Sometimes the comments are well timed and related to the game but more often than not, they are just random and often don’t make too much sense in the context of the game.
Overall iShoot Lite is a fun little game. It can consume hours of time for fans on the original version of this game, Scorched Earth, or even just for new players looking for an App to fill in some time.

Yeah, it's absolutely addicting. Always has good and needs updates, they are really keeping up with the program. This free version has pretty much all u can ask for but I'm thinking about buying the full version and have even more weapons to use...
