iGuncon (iPhone 4, iPad 2)

Prime up those virtual trigger fingers! Namco Bandai Games has released the free iGunCon App for the iPhone 4. The virtual GunCon controllers, replicas of Namco’s light gun controllers of years past, allow for integrated gameplay with TIME CRISIS 2ND STRIKE HD for the iPad 2 and TIME CRISIS 2ND STRIKE from the Mac App Store. An iPhone 4 and iPad 2 (or Mac) is required as well. Yes, your iPhone 4 will double as a gun controller for that near-arcade experience on the go!

Here is what Namco Bandai Games had to say on the iGunCon App:
“The device running iGunCon will display a Trigger, Action and Reload areas, while the device running TIME CRISIS 2ND STRIKE will show crosshairs. Players can line the crosshairs up with enemies and tap the Trigger area to shoot your way through multiple pulse-pounding game modes.

In addition to Controller Mode, the app has a standalone feature called Toy Mode that allows gamers to recreate the shooting sounds from TIME CRISIS series of games, including the three classic types of GunCon usable in Controller Mode as well as international models. Players can pick their favorite version, and tap the on-screen buttons to play the sounds of the in-game handgun, machine gun, shotgun and grenade launcher.”

Give the iGunCon App a shot and download it here for free from the App Store. Put it to play with TIME CRISIS 2ND STRIKE HD for the iPad 2 (here) or TIME CRISIS 2ND STRIKE for the Mac (here).
