SWAT Counter Strike Force: Game Review

      Looking for a shooter that can deliver some fun?  Try SWAT Counter Strike Force. I haven't played on-screen shooters for a while so it took me a bit to get used to the aiming. The smartphone app has five Levels with different Stages(or vice versa). There isn't a story in the game but at least the developer(s) came up with one (unlike a lot of apps these days). The first person shooter has a good view of his or her detailed weapon(this is one of the most important aspects for first person shooters in my opinion). Weapon selections include a Desert Eagle, Shotgun, and an AK 47. That basically covers all the main types of shooting you can do. The weapons shoot like they should. For example, the shotgun doesn't always hit the reticule. It may miss by hitting close to where you're aiming and sometimes that's a good thing. One nice thing about the app is that the enemies have depth to them and the sceneries are different and detailed.

Even with the pic enlarged, details are still sharp.
      Don't worry too much about reloading. As it takes less than a second to reload. The reload button is white and clear right above your fire button. Your current ammo in your weapon and your health is clearly displayed in the top right hand corner of the screen. The game isn't too difficult as I am uncoordinated and even I never got a game over. So even casual players or smartphone users will be able to beat the game.

You're a cooler soldier when you have a digital map.

      One room for improvement that I see or hear is that the enemies grunt when shot sound the same as the main characters grunt or shot. I think its okay to sound similar as they are in similar agony when making those noises, however I would prefer if they were at least somewhat different. Although the graphics are decent enough to be playable, I could also see the game improving the graphics of the enemy units. As of now they are highly pixelated in contrast to the detailed 3D backgrounds. Another suggestion could be to have a secondary attack or special, perhaps a grenade or health packet (although they aren't necessary unless the game has a harder mode or harder levels).

The FPS Android application is brought to you by the developer(s) at STNich. It currently has between 5,000 and 10,000 installs and an average rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars on Google Play. You can download it FREE here. Although the app is a bit short, it does deliver more and longer fun than a quarter would in an arcade machine.
