The first person shooter genre has always primarily been associated with PC gaming, even far before it made the transition to consoles. This day and age, the rage is all about the duo of shooty shooty bang bangs, Call of Cuty and Battlefield. However, that isn’t to say the realm of FPS games could not make the transition to mobile phones. Enter Sniper Arena: PvP Army Shooter, a free to play sharpshooter experience for Google Play. It’s not the first of its kind, and it won’t be the last, but it can nevertheless be a solid way to delve into the action.
Obviously, it can’t be expected for the game to play exactly like the big boys that hail from Xbox and Playstation. But you know what? Sniper Arena does a fine job of delivering a shooting experience regardless. With the polished visuals and touch controlled shooting gameplay, you can tell the developers made a clear effort to take advantage of the mobile hardware as much as possible. You can just feel the heat of the battlefield in the palm of your hands! In a way, it reminds me of when Activision used to release Call of Duty titles on the Nintendo DS. Yet, technology has marched on to the point where mobile graphics exceed those of the DS.
Do note that you will need a stable internet connection to play, however. Sniper Arena: PvP Army Shooter has a heavy focus on online play, meaning you’ll always be facing human-controlled opponents in real time. Up to eight people can face each other on the same map, and there are a total of three different game modes you could play (Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, and Domination). You can even chat with the other players over the course of the game’s duration! Whoever shoots the most enemies wins the session. It is a simple premise to get into, but is no less fun in execution. The game lends itself well to what it’s set out to do in the first place.
Sniper Arena: PvP Army Shooter knows how to keep the player busy, too. Daily tasks are provided for constant incentives, and a detailed ranking system is established for those looking to be at the top of the game. And of course, there is a wide variety of weapons to unlock and use during combat. Naturally, things get intense on the battlefield when players bring out their A-game. There is no telling what could happen, you know?
I certainly give this a recommendation to players that are interested in the genre; if you want to know more about the game or keep up to date with it, you can check out their Facebook page. Whether or not you feel like clicking the link, though, this is a worthy download for your mobile device. Now get out there, soldier! Show the world what you’re made of! Just try not to get yourself killed in the process.
