Third Person Shooters With Storylines

A number of the stand outs of the shooter genre reside here. You get to see your character in a third person perspective, and then proceed to shoot your way through an adventure. You're often given a story to play through as you take out enemies and complete levels. These games try to give reason to your shooting, and incentive to keep going.

Touch Arcade: "There is plenty of variety to the gameplay, taking you from shooting to platforming sequences, and even a bit of stealth. There are also some quicktime events and even a few puzzles. It's nice to see an action game coming from culture outside of the US/Europe/Japan area. As the first Unreal-based full-movement TPS, it's a promising start."

App Shack: "The graphics in Arrow of Time are done fairly well."

"Arrow of Time" is the story of a cop who gets involved in a dispute between a girl and armed men over an ancient sword. While he is trying to save the girl, he embarks on a journey which takes them back to the 13 century Morocco through a portal, where they have to overcome the enemies and find the sword.
