Konami Digital Entertainment announced Thursday the release of Silent Scope for the iPhone and iPod touch. The new game costs $6.
(Image Caption: Click thumbnail for larger image.) Silent Scope is an updated version of the classic "rail shooter" that first appeared in arcades in 1999, in which you play the world's top sniper, tasked with saving the President and first family from terrorists. You use a high-powered sniper rifle to take out your foes.
Silent Scope uses the iPhone and iPod touch's multi-touch user interface, and sports two different gameplay modes -- Arcade Mode and Training Mode. Training Mode helps you hone your precision shoot skills, while the Arcade Mode features a story, shooting range and time attack. You can also change difficulty, modify the number of lives you get, and even change "Branch Attack" settings.
Silent Scope requires an iPhone or iPod touch with iPhone 2.0 software.
