    "Modern Combat 5 is about as close to a shooter you can get for mobile. It looks surprisingly good rivaling some indie games released today. I found it pretty easy to use and it fit the criteria for what I was looking for."

    " Sky Force 2014 was a game that I saw a coworker playing one day at lunch. He said that he really liked the graphics and the controls of the game. As I watched more and more I realized that I would have fun playing it as well so I bought it. I ended up playing the whole weekend after work."

Shooter games are a sub-genre of action games. These games often test the player's speed and reaction time using guns or some other long-range weapons. A lot of shooter games have also been commercial successes.

    "When I heard about Neon Shadow I was a bit skeptical about how it would play. I am not that big of a fan of playing shooters on my phone but this game managed to be fun even though the mechanics were not the best."
