There are a lot of great first- and third-person shooters on the App Store, but easily my favorite pure shooter is the recently released Trigger Fist [Free] from Lake Effect. By actually stripping away some of the features that have become commonplace in shooters nowadays, Trigger Fist manages to remain more focused on the action of the firefights themselves and doesn’t get bogged down with cumbersome control issues.
Trigger Fist just feels like the perfect little shooter to have on the go, something you can play for a couple of minutes at a time or for hours on end, online or offline, and it’s always guaranteed to serve up a good time. There are more robust shooters on the App Store, and they do what they do well, but Trigger Fist is the game for those who never got quite comfortable with the others and just want some fun fragging on the go.
Yesterday, the guys at Lake Effect "pulled the trigger" on a freebie promotion for Trigger Fist, and as of right now you can grab the game for free. It launched at $4.99 less than a month ago, but some Game Center issues affecting game saves and matchmaking have caused an otherwise fantastic game to stumble out of the gate. Subsequently the online pool of players could definitely use a shot in the arm.
This is a great opportunity for any fence sitters to jump in on the game and fill out the online lobbies. Some of the kinks in the game have been worked out with recent updates, and the team is dedicated to fixing anything else that pops up as well as adding new content to the game.
As with any sale Trigger Fist can go back up in price at any time, so definitely give the game a download for free right away if you're interested. You can also refer to our original review of Trigger Fist or our TA Plays video if you need a closer look at the game, and our forums are where you want to be for discussion and to find some online competition.
