Outdoor Shooting Practice – App Review


Now here’s an app that makes me shudder. Not because of its graphics, music or its game-play, but because it transports me back to a time when my manlihood tested positive for the female toddler gene.

Yep, clay pigeon shooting, and I’m a terrible at it.

Outdoor Shooting Practice is an app that looks like its been around for a while, what with 50,000 downloads and a boat load of reviews (mostly positive might I add).

The app developer is Psionic Games, who look to be proficient in producing 4+ star rated games. They have 8 other apps on the market and they’ve all got that scary/laddish/action vibe, one to bookmark I admit.

This app does exactly what it says on the tin. First of all it presents an option to skip adverts, which is nice given that is a free app afterall. Onto the home screen and you have some cool arcade-type graphics, a bit retro, a bit Playstation, but nice nonetheless.

The menu presents some familiar options, such as high scores and credits, also they serve up some instructions, which on the surface are fine but don’t go into great detail about how to play the game.

It becomes apparent that no instructions are really needed.

On hitting the ‘Start’ option you dive straight into 1 of 10 firing rounds. You’ll probably miss both of the first two clay pigeons that swoop across your screen, but that’s cool, there’s plenty of time for practice.

You’ll notice your shotgun barrel to the foot of the screen, this my friends is your gun!

As the clays fly in there is nothing more to do than tap – at the clay targets. Don’t pick up your tablet and start waving it in the air, it’s not that type of game. Simply wait for the clays to come into view and tap at where you wish to shoot. In the world of Clays, normally you shoot just ahead of the moving object – something I learned the hard way.

You will play through 10 rounds of two clays, racking up as many hits as you can. The app takes you through different scenes for each round, which is a nice feature. One minute you are hitting clays in the snow, the next you are missing clays on an autumnal beaten track.

Going back to the instructions you will notice different ways of racking up a high score. Hitting both clays in a round amounts to a ‘perfect’, granting you bonus points at the end of the game. You will also notice that the sooner you hit the clays, the more points you earn. Waiting for the clays to fly almost the width of the screen before firing is a losers game, let me tell you.

Of course what would a game like this be without some targets to reach? The ‘Awards’ screen gives you a breakdown of your achievements, from perfect rounds to perfect games. The latter is what every man should aspire to – 10 out of 10 perfect rounds.

Do you got the minerals?

All in all this app is a fun time killer and it tests your finger-eye-coordination to the max. Some multi-player action wouldn’t go amiss as I’m sure it’s a good one to play with a friend.

If you’re a trigger-happy individual with an eye for perfection, check the app out on Google Play. Like I said, it’s fun and free!
