First-Person Shooter Modern Combat: Sandstorm Targets App Store


Gameloft has added to its large library of iPhone games with Modern Combat: Sandstorm, a first-person shooter set in the Middle East, where 10 missions take players through city streets, sewers, a hospital, a lab, and other environments as they try to find and eliminate a terrorist cell.

Two modes of shooting -- Sniper and Ironsight -- are available as players wield assault and sniper rifles, a rocket-propelled grenade launcher, a shotgun, different types of machine guns, and more. Modern Combat features three control schemes, cinematics, military voice-overs, and more.

The game sells for US$6.99 and requires iPhone OS 2.2.1.

Thanks to Macworld for the heads-up.
