[prMac.com] Baltimore, Maryland - So it'd be cool to add a whole bunch of guns to an otherwise benign game of air hockey right? BrazeN Apps LLC hopes so, because that's pretty much Gun Hockey in a sentence. Gun Hockey is air hockey with firepower. Using 4 different guns, players compete to shoot a puck into their opponent's goal. Each gun is balanced by power, fire rate, clip size, and reload time. You can play by yourself against the iPad or with a friend on the same device. The game requires quick decisions and finesse. Average match times of 2-6 minutes mean that choosing the wrong gun or missing that sniper shot can cost you dearly.
Gun Hockey was designed from the ground up to be a tablet game. The company drew inspiration from the 90's board game "Crossfire," and aimed to recreate that experience (except now players don't need to struggle to pick up tiny little BB's with their fingers to feed into the spring-gun). It's basically a suped-up version of a 90's era board game, and like the old board game, Gun Hockey is ok for the kiddies (4+), so long as parents trust them with their iPad.
BrazeN Apps released a version last year on Android and Barnes and Noble nook devices, where they saw strong sales and reviews on the Nook Color/Tablet. The iPad version includes many enhancements over the original Android version, including multiple AI difficulties and game speeeds.
