iPhone App Review - High Noon

High Noon is a realistic westerns-based online game featuring the addictive rpg qualities that gamers already know and love mixed with some wicked gunslinging action.
Like similar games, High Noon is based around the concept of ‘energy’, which permits you to duel with other people a certain amount of times before you have to let it recharge. However, rather than fighting in a strictly textual way ala 'Mafia Wars', High Noon actually incorporates some real time action into it. Because of this, you want to make sure you’re in an area with good internet connectivity; else the game will spit out a warning about how you need a strong connection to play.
Dueling in the game involves tilting your phone to control your aim and tapping to shoot. To reload, simply tilt your device forward.  Rather than gaining experience points to level up, the High Noon uses a system of gold bounties on an enemy’s death. If you successfully slay your enemy in mortal combat, you’ll get a tidy sum of gold toward gaining your next level.
The bad side about this game is that it can be a little repetitive especially when you need to collect a substantial amount of gold to reach your next level. While you can liven up battles by purchasing items for one-time use, High Noon can tend to get dry when you have a gallery of enemies to shoot through.
All in all, High Noon is a strong, addictive game. And since it’s free, be sure to give it a download if you’re interested, and leave your thoughts about the game in the comments.
