Specifications

The Deer Hunter: African Safari game is available on the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPhone. The game is available for download on the App Store for about $6.

In Use

The original Deer Hunter game had the player moving around the world hunting deer and other animals in different environments. The game was a lot of fun and I spent lots of time playing it. Deer Hunter: African Safari is the follow up and as the name implies, this time out you are in Africa hunting exotic animals like zebra, buffalo, kudu, elephants, lions and other animals. The scenery in the new game is on par with what the original offered.

That is to say, the graphics are decent, the controls are easy to use, and gameplay is fun. In the original game, you simply move around a GPS map with your character waiting until animals appear in the map and then you can hunt them when promoted. Deer Hunter: African Safari has the same GPS map, but the hunting areas each have a multiple stands where the hunter can shoot. Different stands will get you closer or father from the action.

One of the most interesting new wrinkles in the Deer Hunter: African Safari game is that if you shoot and miss or wound an animal, the animal may charge and can attack you causing you damage and loosing points. You need the points to move on to the second or third day of your hunts and to unlock skills and buy new weapons.

The locations in the game span the African continent with hunts in South Africa, Cameroon, and Tanzania. Each of the locations has four difficulty levels where you need more and more points accumulated to move onto the next level. You get points by hitting animals in vital areas and shooting them while they are in cover can earn you bonus points. Different weapons also earn bonus points if used.

Deer Hunter: African Safari allows you to equip the hunter with two weapons at one time and different equipment to aid the hunter in spending more time on the hunt before animals sense him and run away. As you earn points, they can be spent on new weapons that make hunts easier with bonus points and new gear to make your shots more accurate.

The controls in the game are easy to use. You use your finger to drag the crosshairs to the target you want. Depending on the weapon, you are equipped with the accuracy and wobbling motion of the crosshairs will vary.

The game does offer some weapons and items that you have to purchase with real money via the in-App purchase feature of the device. The Deer Hunter: African Safari game is lots of fun and a worthy successor to the original that is just as much fun.

Verdict

Pros

  • Decent graphics
  • Fun to play

Cons

  • Some weapons and upgrades cost real money
 

Conclusion

Glu's Deer Hunter: African Safari is a very fun game that you can play on the iPod touch, iPhone, or iPad. This is a very worthy successor to the original Deer Hunter game that will appeal to gamers and hunters alike.
