it’s good

i remember playing this game YEARS ago. pretty sure it was on one of the first phones i had. i really enjoyed the game and i would come home from school and play it for about 30 minutes to an hour every day. I totally forgot about this game though until today. i was looking at the app store searching for “shooter games”. I came across this and got a huge hit or nostalgia. It brought me back to awesome memories. I’ve just got a couple problems. For starters, the graphics. Now everyone is complaining about the graphics and i agree with them. Not saying the game is bad at ALL. All i’m saying is i’d prefer better graphics. I think if you guys put some more effort into it you’d get pretty good graphics. Second, updates. I looked on the history and all of it was 7 years ago except for one. And that one was the last update there was. 2 years ago! This game hasn’t been worked on for a whole 2 years!!! My goodness. All my suggestion is that: lots of people still play this game. Creators, please be more consistent with this game. I’m not sure if the creators are working on other games now and have moved on or not cuz i haven’t caught up on their work. But these are all suggestions and random thoughts. Right before this review i started to re download the game and i’m ready to start gaming on this like the old days! Thanks!

Excellent game, but...

Lake Effect Applications, you've made an amazing game that is still playable so many years since its release. I've made countless memories since I've picked the game up 5 years ago and have put countless hours already. That being said, two gripes I have is the bluetooth pairing and screen compatibility. Bluetooth pairing never works and the screen takes up part of the space on the iPhone 11. It's been two years since you've updated and people loved it. We as the gamers deserve another update, no matter how insignificant, to let us know that you are still thinking about us. It would be a disgrace to step away from an amazing project like this wonderful game. It's four stars because of the aforementioned problems, but you can expect me to immediately give it the five stars it deserves with another update. Despite its age, its been a blast to play. Thank you for an amazing game Lake Effect Applications!

Okay, I guess.

When I first started playing Trigger Fist, I really enjoyed it. The tutorial sucked but I figured out how to play on my own. Pretty soon after though, the game showed it’s true colors as a really crappy game. The graphics aren’t good and the bots are insanely hard, and after the second (or third, if you like on specific kit) gun series, it’s impossible to get a new gun. I like the idea of kits but there’s only three which kinda ruins the point and the pistols are the same for every kit and they also stink. Additionally, there are a few specific respawn areas which are always swarming with bots.

A word to the wise: AVOID KING OF THE HILL IF YOU ARE GONNA GET TRIGGER FIST. First of all, the hill randomly shifts positions, sometimes favoring the Beast team and sometimes favoring the Scorpion team. Whatever team captures the hill respawns right next to the hill and the other team gets booted across the map.

The only reason I’m giving it a two star is that is is really not laggy which is surprising because most mobile shooters are really laggy, and that it’s Free for All and Team DM is okay, but besides that don’t get this game.
