Product: Bounty Hunter: Black Dawn
Publisher: Freyr Games
Format: Android, iPhone, iPad
Genre: Multiplayer, Shooter
When it comes to cool things 11-year-old boys want to be, bounty hunter is right up there behind ninja, footballer, and astronaut. Oh, and Iron Man.
As well as being hard nuts who get to carry around weapons (in America, at least) and chase down perps, bounty hunters also occupy that legally shady area between respectable copper and loony vigilante. Way cool.
Bounty Hunter: Black Dawn isn't quite as cool as its theme would suggest, though. It's too much of an ardent fan letter for that.
Picking up the scent
Put simply, Bounty Hunter: Black Dawn is a straight rip-off of console hit Borderlands.
This unabashed copy of Borderlands lacks fluidity, scope, and polish, but it still manages to entertain with its seamless online co-op play and moreish loot-hoarding system
