Apps to look out for is a regular feature where we take a look at an app that may have otherwise gone under your radar, and that may be very well worth a look.
Bird Hunting Mania!
Bird Hunting Mania for iPhone is a decent little shooting game with a few twists. While it at first appears to be a simple ‘tap the screen to shoot’ style game, after you play for a little while, the innate addictive nature and light tactical elements will entice you to play more and eventually hook you in completely.
The story of the game sees you attempting to capture exotic birds on a faraway planet in the hope of bringing them back to Earth in an attempt to repopulate our waning exotic bird population. To do this, you have a crossbow fitted with nets, which you can shoot to capture the birds by tapping the screen. There are different sizes of nets to choose from, and you can preload some ammo, both of which are handy for getting the best score of coins and also collecting whole flights of birds at once.
The graphics are gorgeous, especially if you are playing on iPad where the bold and bright colours mix well with the impressive display of various species of birds flying around the screen at once. The music is suitably charming.
Here is what the developer has to say about the game:
★Simple yet addictive gameplay.
★Stunningly beautiful graphics!
★11 different birds, from little hummingbird to giant eagle!
★3 Unique locations with waterfalls and flying mountains!
★Collective magical eggs.
The app is free to play, and you can pay to unlock extra coins to speed up your progress, but the game doesn’t pester you to buy them, which is a nice touch. All in all, a good little game that really proves to be an addictive experience.
