Everybody loves light gun games. They're exhilarating virtual shooting galleries, exuberant tests of marksmanship that offer an almost uniquely close connection between player action and on-screen consequence.
And everybody knows that light gun games just aren't much fun without a light gun. Ask anyone who's ever played a console conversion of an arcade shooter without investing in some gun-shaped hardware first.
So, Mobage's free-to-play on-rails shooter Lawless has got its work cut out for it.
Thankfully, Lawless's touchscreen controls capture the thrills and immediacy of the arcade experience better than a traditional console controller ever could.
A fun but lightweight shooter that sets out to recreate the thrills of an arcade light gun game for your iOS device
