Headshot - Action Videogame Review (X-Box Indie)
I think this may well be the first X-Box Indie game I have reviewed. Headshot is only 80 Microsoft points (around about £1 I think?).
In this game you play as a sniper, and the whole game takes place through the gun sight on your sniper rifle. As such the screen is black, apart from the circle of your reticule. Many stick figure people walk around on the screen with mild crowd noise. After a random amount of time the crowd will scream and a time limit will appear. In this time you need to search the screen for the stick figure who has pulled out a gun on another stick figure and shoot him before the time limit runs out. If your successful then you go onto the next round which has a slightly quicker time limit, if not it's game over.
The game is very simple, but it is really tense as you wait for the killer to play his hand, the realistic crowd noise makes the whole situation more real. For 80 Microsoft Points you really can't complain about this game. It is very simplistic, but a cool experience.
