High Noon Jonny: Written iPhone App Review
Do you enjoy playing arcade-style games? Love anything of the Western genre? Then the High Noon Jonny app from developer AS Mobile Applications GmbH is the perfect game app for you! It is compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation) iPod (5th generation), and iPad, and runs on iOS 4.0 or later.
When you initially load High Noon Jonny you are prompted with the main menu. The options offered are: “Classic”, “Freestyle”, “Duel”, and “Phantom” game style modes, and also access to Game Center, game instructions, achievements, and more apps available from the developer.
For “Classic” mode, after the countdown, wait for the final bell. Once the bell rings, shoot as fast as you can or you will end up dead. However, don’t jump the gun and shoot before the bell sounds off. For “Freestyle” mode, you are being bluffed by Jonny. If you see Jonny whip out a rose, do not shoot! If you succeed in doing so, you win the duel. If Jonny pulls out his gun, react faster than him and you will also win the round. With the “Duel” mode, you must be patient and wait until Jonny turns his back to you because if you shoot any time before that, you lose the round. If Jonny pulls out his gun, out shoot him first! For the “Phantom” mode, you will need to dodge Jonny’s sudden and random firing, so be quick on your toes so you don’t end up dead!
You can save your wins by tapping on the “Save” button. However, note that only wins won in a row will count, so if you lose a round, your win counter will be reset!
There were some occasional app crashing during middle of game play, but it wasn’t too frustrating.
Appearance and Layout:
The overall appearance of High Noon Jonny is pretty decent. The animation can get kind of lagging at times, especially during the “Freestyle” game mode, but other than that, game play is smooth sailing. It is very helpful that the app comes with a set of instructions on how to play the game, making it easier for new players, and a good reminder for current players. Going about the app navigation and figuring out the layout is a breeze. The app boosts entertaining western style background music that enhances the game play, and on the spot sound effects aren’t so bad either.
Overall the value of High Noon Jonny is an average one. It is a great and fun game that would appeal to players of all ages and backgrounds, and especially those who like classic arcade game playing styles, and also those who love anything of the Western theme. Besides the occasional game crashing animation lag, the game itself is very enjoyable to play, and the fact that the app offers multiple playing mode is a huge plus.
And keep in mind that there is a free version of this fine game as well. You can see it here.
