Love the game, although limited

I love this game I've had it for a little over 3 years, and I still think it's one of my better if not best apps. This game is about comically shooting deer, bears, etc. I like how it is simple, just tapping to shoot, and that there is no blood cause I personally don't like having blood in the game. The graphics are quite great for it's time, it's also pretty realistic with the bear occasionally attacking you while the deer would always flee. It is really rewarding to kill an animal, which seems easier when it is on the move.

There is some unnecessary limits though, that prevent me from ranking this a perfect 5. There is a variety of guns and accessories to choose from, but require a lot more money that I have. Also it is sometimes very hard to kill the wildlife, even when I use the steady mode. The aiming system looks as if the gun shot would fire in the dead center of the deer, but right when I shoot, it seems as if I had missed by a mile. I don't really know if this is a glitch but either way it is still an app very much worth getting (love that it's free).

Good, but...

The gameplay is good overall. Intuitive controls. The tutorial could be better. My game glitched the first time that I opened it, but hasn't done so again since. On the GPS screen where you track the animals, my blue circle froze in place and, with the crappy directions, it wasn't until I reloaded the game one last time (if this hadn't worked this was about to be deleted) that I could see that the blue circle was your hunter's area of movement. After the initial slip up, it has run perfectly. I really enjoy the hunting simulation, but the gear is over priced in hopes that you will spend actual money buying it. You can get by easily enough without resorting to that, however don't expect to take out your first moose with an assault rifle for free. All in all I'd say this is a very enjoyable hunting sim where the pros more than outweigh the cons.

Constructive Criticism Corner

Dear Developers of this Game,
Most People give nothing but praise about this game, and i agree 110%, but there is still room for improvement. While the Hunting areas are stunning and very clear, they should also be more varied, instead of having 2 or 3 areas per map, add some more spots, or even better, make the whole map free reign. another issue that comes to mind is the store. while most of the items are of reasonable price, you should make collecting hunter cash easier, or drop the price of some the exclusive items, such as the silenced sniper rifle, or the assault crossbow. remember, these are just opinions from one person, but i think they would enhance the experience greatly.
