So what have you been playing lately? Slow-paced RPGs? Thought-provoking strategy games? Perhaps something turn-based? Well, that's no good! What's going to happen to your coordination, your reaction time, and the other skills you developed playing fast-paced shooting games years ago?

Time to dust those off! Sharpshooter Plus is back to test, tax, and perhaps improve those skills! Grab a controller, mouse, or touchscreen, and prepare for action! Once you've initiated yourself with Training and the easier difficulties, get ready for the crazy challenge of the Expert and Master levels! You'll have to call upon every bit of your focus, coordination, and abilities...will it be enough? Can you keep up? Time to find out!

Sharpshooter Plus challenges you with 20 unique target-shooting minigames! Choose from five difficulty levels, then complete as many of the challenges presented to you as possible! Each minigame's difficulty will automatically adjust based on your performance, and the order in which you play them is always different, so it's never the same game twice! At the end, you'll be graded based on how well you did. Will your skills be enough to earn the coveted top grades?

With the Steam version, you can experience this yyrGames favorite in three different ways! Xbox, DualShock, Switch Pro, and Steam controllers are all fully supported, so grab one and go for the top grades, including in Double Mode, where you control TWO guns at once! Or, grab a mouse and click your way to victory! And if you have a touchscreen, get ready for the most intense yyrGames challenge yet! The entire game can be played with your fingers, and it's faster-paced than ever before! (Touchscreen play not available on Mac; only controller play is available on Xbox.)

Sharpshooter Plus isn't just for single-player action! Bring a friend along, and you'll be able to take on the challenges together in the Competition mode! Will you try to hog all of the targets, or let your friend complete the goals? It's a tough choice, and if you choose not to play nice, your friend might challenge you to the no-holds-barred Versus mode, a straight-up, best-of-5 match! The winner stays in...the loser is out! Sharpshooter Plus features both jump-in play and a separate, dedicated Versus mode, so you can take on challengers one after another! It's great at parties! (Two controllers required for 2-player modes; mouse and touchscreen are not supported.)

Sharpshooter Plus features an intuitive control scheme that takes full advantage of the sensitivity provided by modern controllers' analog sticks. Once you're used to it, you'll be aiming with the same speed and precision allowed by light-gun controllers! Need more time to get used to it? Check out the Training mode, featuring lots of large stationary and slow-moving targets. And, if you're zeroing in on that high score but need a little bit of practice on minigames that are giving you trouble, there's a Practice mode too!

The previous version of Sharpshooter awarded the same number of points regardless of where a target was shot. Newly added in Sharpshooter Plus, Hardcore Mode ups the ante by giving more points for better aim! Insane Mode also returns, ending a round instantly if you miss any shot! You can turn on either or both modes to intensify the challenge!

Want to compete but don't have anyone around? No problem! In the Steam version, compete for the world records on 16 unique Steam Leaderboards, and do your best to unlock a dozen Steam Achievements! (The Xbox version has 8 Leaderboards.)

You get all of this for just $3.99 on Steam, or $2.99 on Xbox! Sharpshooter Plus is now available!

Are we, as gamers, getting slow? A lot of modern games lack the raw action and intensity of many classics. They don't penalize us when we fail, they wait for us to catch up when we fall behind, and they move at a pace more suitable for snails than hardcore video gamers.

Sharpshooter Plus is not one of these games. If you fail, you lose a bunch of points, and you proceed to the next round; you don't get to try again. On the harder difficulties, the pace is unapologetically fast, and the action is furious. The game does not hand out the top grades to anyone who reaches the end; you'll need to nail a near-perfect run if you want any chance to see the coveted "AAA" grade. Actually, you'll need to work very hard just to see an "A" on the hardest difficulties.

These characteristics are atypical of recent games, perhaps even risky. But I feel that they make Sharpshooter Plus into an intense ride, one that I truly enjoy. I hope you enjoy it as well, and that you find it well worth the asking price. Please have a blast with Sharpshooter Plus!
