    Hey, theres a game so similar to iShoot, that you play online, but i cant think of the name! Does anyone know what im talking about? I played it a few years ago, and it was almost the same thing, but with more weapons

    Yes, I do, but can't think of the name, iShoot is most certianly based off of it, and it was really big on Addictinggames for a long time.

    It is called Tanks. It's epic. And for the link

    I love iShoot. I don't have it, yet, but I do love the game. For only one reason. IT KNOCKED IFART OFF OF THE TOP SPOT. Thank you.

    The story of iShoot is very odd, too. It has been out for months, and never gained traction. Then the lite version comes out, and it iShoots up the charts.

    Actually iShoot was in the top 80 or so games for about two days. That's how I found out about it (bought it the first day of release). I remember there were three other reviews, so I bought the game and left a review for it. I gave the developer suggestions and he listened and updated the app about a month or two later. It was a much better game after the update, but people just weren't buying it. They finally released the lite version and like you said, it shot up the charts.

    I think it's actually a pretty cool story :D

    That sounds very similar to Bowman.

    Hopefully Team7 will released an iPhone/iPod Touch version of Worms. I don't like tank, to be frank.

    inside my iTouch
    Snails reloaded made by PDAmill should get this type of recognition. its more worms like with snails and very funny weapons and i think more people should get it.

    Also the game on the pc was called Cannonballs! made by wildtangent. its no longer available but there is a site called Ressurect Cannonballs! that has a version of it for windows vista available to play and he is trying to remake it.

    Personally, I think iShoot is just a much better game than Snails Reloaded. Plus, we now have proof that the developer listens when you ask for suggestions and it looks like he's worked really hard on it. He deserves more recognition than it already has in my opinion.

    I just did some googling and found the game I was thinking about, its called Cannonballs and was made by WildTangent - however, it now appears to be defunct (i can't find anywhere to download it). I did find a site that explains the game if anyone's interested:

    http://www.ugo.com/channels/games/features/cannonballs/

    I would love to see this game ported to the app store. I like iShoot, but this game was 20 times better


    EDIT: Lol - sorry, i didnt see kindredspirit's post before I posted
