What is Hot Guns – International Missions?

Hot Guns is a simple pixel-art side-scrolling shooter. You simply move left or right and shoot at whatever is trying to kill you (or innocent crates and boxes), and jump over obstacles and enemy fire. This is a one hit and you’re dead game, so dodging bullets is a must, and you will almost certainly need a bit of level memorization to get past some of the game’s 6 levels. As you play you can pick up coins that help you unlock more guns, improving your ability to blow stuff away.

Recommendation

Hot Shots is a surprisingly well executed game. Although simple, the controls are accurate and responsive. Bullets are perfectly avoidable if your timing is right, and if it’s not, you have no one to blame but yourself. There are some issues with the background and foreground being very similar, leading to some platforming issues and possible deaths. That along with the game only having 6 levels at this time, are the only things I would hold against it. It’s simple, well executed fun on Android. If you’re looking for a simple shooter, this is a must download.
