What Is It?
It’s a Second World War dog fight shooter game, with you as the fighter pilot.
Is It Easy To Use?
It does take a little getting used to as you need to literally move your device around in order to navigate. It doesn’t take long to master this though.
When you first fire up Medal of Gunner you can view the tutorial to help you learn more about the gameplay. There’s also a book icon at the bottom right of the screen and if you click on that, it will explain the types of awards the user can achieve when completing specific missions.
There are various ‘positions’ you can select to fire from and it’s a good idea to have several practices with this. One thing we found really useful was the handy hints, during the game play. These say things like ‘fighters at 5 o’clock -15’, from the screen you can then move your plane in position and put your sight on the enemy and start firing like crazy.
As you successfully complete the missions, you get rewarded with medals and promotions to the next grade/ranking. You also get ‘paid’ in points and you can use this ‘money’ to upgrade your bullets and defenses.
Is It Fun?
Yes, once you’ve got the hang of it, this is a lot of fun.
Is It Pretty?
It does look good but it looks better on the iPhone than on the latest and greatest iPad. If this game could be optimized for the new iPad’s retina screen it would be awesome.
Should You Download It?
It’s a good app and it’s only $0.99/£0.69. If you are the type of person that enjoys flight simulation, World War II era shooters then this is definitely for you. To be honest there’s not enough of this style of game in the app store, so all the more reason to download this one right now. The link is at the top of the page.
