Don’t Like Charlie Sheen’s Tweets? Shoot Them Away With Fantastic New App
Tweet Hunt is a fantastic new game that recently arrived for the iPhone/iPod touch and iPad. It turns Twitter into a sling shot game where active tweets serve as birds ready to be shot down. Created by Jared Kroff, the game has fast-become one of my favorites, especially on the iPad. Like slingshot play in the wild, Tweet Hunt’s goal is simple: hit as many targets as you can. Of course, like with all great games, this one becomes more difficult as you get through each level. Once a level is completed (meaning you’ve lost) you’ll see a lineup of each bird you’ve hit or missed along with his or her Twitter feed. Tweet Hunt includes four modes, each which is slightly different than the next. Celebirdies is far my favorite. Here, Tweet Hunt lines up some of Twitter’s most active celebrities and lets you shoot down tweets from their followers. “Kill” enough followers, and you’ll soon have a change to take out the celebrity too. As an added bonus, each celebrity is represented by a bird that looks like, or has something in common with, the actual person. Tweet Hunt and it comes highly recommended. Best of all, it costs just $.99 and for that you can play the game on any of your iDevices. Download it today in the App Store.
