Yes, I just shot you
Since the dawn of the camera phone man has dreamed of delivering ‘one to the head’ to fellow commuters, colleagues and, of course, the end-of-level-baddie: the boss. That dream is now a violent, blood-spattered reality thanks to Camgun, an app that lets you mow down any in the vicinity of your ‘droid’s camera. These guys have a new app in the market called Fear the Reaper too. Check it out.
Camgun overlays a gun and sight onto your camera’s viewfinder and allows you to mete out lead-based justice to all who cross its path. There’s a dazzling array of weaponry on offer from dual 9mm pistols, to crossbows, to sub-machine guns, to knives, to hand grenades that can be deployed to devastating effect on your chosen quarry.
Certain weapons have neat ‘Easter eggs’ included – a long tap on the screen when using the pistol brings up a second gun for ‘dual-wielding’, while sighting the sniper rifle brings up a reticule that can be used in standard or ‘night vision’ negative mode.
Should you wish to record the ensuing carnage, you can snap a pic by hitting the ‘photo’ icon on the bottom left of the screen. Sadly, there’s no option to record video from the app.
Camgun is a lot of fun and we’re sure you’ll revisit it periodically making the 86p outlay justifiable. It’s certainly a lot more fun than you can have with more or less anything else that costs less than $1. Feel free to correct us if you know of another, non-app use of 99 cents that’s more enjoyable…
