Konami has announced they will be releasing an iPhone version of the arcade sniping shooter Silent Scope. The game should be an easy fit for the controls of the iPhone, since it’s a point and shoot style game. Silent Scope is played as an on-rails shooter, with you only controlling the shots and not the movement.
Here’s what Konami had to say:
Based on the popular arcade game originally released in 1999, players take on the role of the world’s top sniper and must defeat terrorists to save the American First Family, including the President of the United States, who have been abducted by terrorists in Chicago.
Designed to take full advantage of Apple’s innovative Multi-Touch user interface, Silent Scope will feature tap-to-shoot game controls. In this rail shooter, players can choose from different gameplay modes, including Arcade Mode and Training Mode. Inexperienced marksmen can practice precision shooting in the Training Mode, while veteran snipers can go straight to the Arcade Mode featuring up to three stages of gameplay: Story, Shooting Range and Time Attack. The Arcade Mode also allows players to change the game settings to Difficulty, Player Life and Branch Select.
There’s no release date yet, but we’ll let you know when there’s any updates.
