Pocket Gamer’s best games of May giveaway – Guns of Boom

It’s that time of the month again, when Pocket Gamer gives away a bounty of codes for last month’s absolute best games to our wonderful community, the App Army.

For those unaware, that’s our diehard band of mobile gaming enthusiasts. In exchange for their critical thoughts, we give them codes for unreleased games on a weekly basis and you can join in the fun by simply signing up on Facebook.

That’s a requirement to get a chance at a code in the giveaway, but more on that later. Let’s kick things off.

Guns of Boom

Guns of Boom answered the question “do shooters work on mobile?” with a resounding “yes”. If you were sceptical yourself, you really should check this out.

The design is smart. Most actions are taken care of for you, like shooting, reloading, and stabbing any poor sucker who gets close to you.

That sounds like it’s an easier game in theory, but it isn’t. You have to focus on the most difficult part: aiming. Headshots don’t come easy here, but if you land one your opponent will regret it.

At review, we gave Guns of Boom a Gold Award and called it: “A brilliant multiplayer FPS that you should just go and play right now”.

Okay, I’ll give it a go

Not so fast! First you have to sign up to the App Army here, then write your name as it appears on Facebook in the comments beneath this post. We’ll then select the lucky winners over the next few days.

We only have iOS codes for this one, sorry Androiders! We’ll have more codes for you tomorrow.

And that’s it. We’ll be back tomorrow with a brand new game so keep checking back at 5PM BST.

What’s the App Army?

The App Army is Pocket Gamer‘s very own community of mobile game experts. Each week, we provide them with a bunch of free codes and early access to the hottest upcoming games so they can provide their thoughts in features like this.

We also host regular community-driven events with them in mind like tournaments, giveaways, and multiplayer evenings.
