American Laser Games's so-awful-it-ends-up-being-good FMV shooter, Mad Dog McCree, is coming to the iPhone and iPod Touch this December 20, according to caretaker Digital Leisure. This is a port of the original arcade release of the game, so don't expect anything too fancy, however the team is noting that it has converted the game's silly footage for phones and even added an "all new casual mode" for those without hardcore gunslinging skills.

If you're unfamiliar with McCree, take a gander at the footage just below. You play as a gunslinger charged with killing a band of Wild West cutthroats who have kidnapped a hole in the wall town's mayor and his precious daughter. Most of the time, you'll be killing dudes in fairly linear sequences, but there's some hilariously bad reflex-laden one-on-one shootouts. We can't wait to see this one, for sure.

    FMV is coming back.  FPS games are steadily changing to more and more linear and scripted experiences, and the end result is that the genre will morph back into FMV.  It's going to happen.

    Wow I used to play the hell out of this when I was little at this arcade in a tourist joint called Golf N' Stuff in Phoenix, AZ (renamed Castles N' Coasters). I totally forgot about this game! Now I'm stuck in an nostalgia trance

    A game that relys solely on the light gun on a platform with no light gun. I remember this game quite fondly in arcades but on IOS no thanks I already made the mistake of trying the time crisis games and they were terrible.
