By day Karin is a regular college freshman, at night she’s a an assassin with a sniper rifle. That kind of skeleton plot is probably sufficient for a touch screen sniper game, but you’re going to delve into Karin’s life in Last Bullet. In the adventure part you push the story forward by picking dialogue choices and search for information on your next target.
When you find your mark the touch screen becomes the scope and the top screen shows the surrounding area. Shooting should be easy, but snipers run into all kinds of disturbing conditions. Innocent bystanders, shaky hands, and bad weather are some of the distractions that make touch screen sniping so difficult.
Furyu plans to release Last Bullet on the Nintendo DS in Japan this spring. You may not recognize the developer since they mostly worked on cell phone games. Not really sure if this will affect chances for an international release because there are plenty of companies picking up and localizing games these days.
