RnSK Softtronics Firearms new iPhone application “Bang! Bang!” simulates a real gun, complete with a safety switch, optional silencer, and an animated slide. When running the app you hold your iPhone like a gun and the motion of tilting the device forward makes it fire. It works just when you were a kid and you pointed your finger like a gun, except this has realistic sound effects licensed from an Oscar award winning sound effects company.
Rumor has it that it took several tweaks and a change to the App’s rating before being allowed into the iPhone App store. However the first app (of several models) has finally passed through and should be available early next week is available in the app store now.
They have several other guns coming out as well, including an O.G. version that you hold sideways, a Shot Gun, and something along the lines of an AK. Here’s a promo video showing several of the upcoming gun models.
Kai Cherry of RnSK Softronics, part of the team that created the apps in partnership with Damabia, Inc., explained to me that each gun model is carefully crafted – down having a specific look, realistic options, and unique animations. Even the firing mechanisms are individually tuned to that particular firearm. Here’s a preview image of their gangsta O.G. version, due out soon:
There are options for each gun app to be use lefty or righty. And you can disable the intro video to get to the action faster. Even though the app doesn’t officially launch until Monday, it is actually available in the app store now (iTunes Link) for $1.99. For more info you can go to kaisakura.com/firearms/
