Great Game Ruined
The actual core game itself is very fun, fast-paced, and addicting. The concept is simple and the game overall is just really fun to play. But I can’t recommend it at all due to the horrible use of ads and monetization schemes implemented in the game that just make the whole thing an irritating and disappointing mess.
Ads constantly play whenever you die (which happens a lot due to the fast paced nature) or watch a video for a retry or for some more coins. However these ads cause the game (for me at least) to slow the game down and lag a lot, which causes more deaths, and more ads, slowing the game down even more. And sometimes, the game would just completely freeze loading in an ad or closing one, and I’d have to constantly reset the game.
Honestly I liked the game enough that I would throw a couple bucks to get rid of the ads.......But it turns out you need to get a WEEKLY SUBSCRIPTION of $6 DOLLARS PER WEEK!!!!! This is the worst case of money being favored over players I’ve seen in a while and it really puts a bad face on this enjoyable game.
But I CANNOT recommend this game to ANYONE unless they cut the subscription crap out. By the course of two months I would’ve spent the same amount of money for a game to play on the toilet, as a full priced AAA game for my PC, and only for the game to be a little more playable and for some incredibly overpowered weapons added to make the game boring.
Fast, Fun, and Easy
This game is actually one of my favorites. For once not a game made simple just to dish out with ad revenue. The ads are kept to a minimum and usually when watching an ad there is a skip button on the top left corner. Another good thing about the game is how easy it is to play! You can’t pick up your device, enter the app, and Play. In a couple taps you are already shooting some baddies. Now for the reward system. The game rewards you for playing (unlike some other games). If I’m just casually playing and I beat a boss I can get coins, a gun, or a character. The random gun buying in the “guns” section isn’t even that much. Also I can get skins just by how many times I’ve played or however many headshots I’ve scored. The soundtrack. Welp not much to say there. There is only one song so your stuck listening to the same thing over and over. Devs, if you read this please add more music, I’d really like to see that. Lastly is the fast gameplay. You can go up 10 levels in less than 5 mins! Now that’s speed! So I rate this game a 4.8/5 stars. Rounding that makes 5 stars so there. Anyway, probs gonna play some like papers, please or Minecraft now. Bye!
Ads Stats KSG
By Disappointed zombie lover
This game by Ketchapp is great. I rarely download and play games on my phone because of ads and pay to win issues. Clash of clans was my only game app on my phone for about 4 years. Also played a couple other Ketchapp games in the past like Ball jump, stack etc. The only issues I have with this game are the excessive ads, elite access, stats, and a specific gun I was really looking forward to. The ads are ridiculous for a company that already makes a ton of money on cheap simple apps that require no thought process when developing. Elite access for $6 a week is out of this world. This game is not worth that whatsoever. I’m looking forward to an update with new guns, outfits, weapon upgrades and more. Hopefully they add some stats. Now on to the KSG. The KSG is a slug shotgun. It does not fire a normal spread shot shell. It was my last blacklist gun and was looking forward to it since I saw it pop up in the blacklist reward spin. The sound of the KSG should also be much more “thumpy” it’s weak. Very disappointed with that. Besides these issues good job with the game.
This, like all other Ketchapp games, is full of ads. Usually I don’t mind their ads because they would always play after you lost a game; however, Mr. Gun plays thirty second, non-skippable ads after you beat levels. I found that I was getting them on an average of every other level, which is the equivalent of an ad for every minute of gameplay. There is also an ad bar on the bottom that never goes away unless you pay for the premium. I found that this ad wasn’t very noticeable while playing, so it isn’t that bad.
Ketchapp needs to make money off of their games - I get it. However, when you have a ratio of 2:1 for gameplay/ad time, you are becoming greedy.
As for the actual game, it is a simple game that most would play to just pass time. Although it may be simple, it is fun to play. If the ads weren’t so relevant, I would definitely rate this higher than three stars.
This is a fun game, but I have some ideas I really hope the devs read. These will help the devs make money and are also extremely fair for those who’d like to purchase content, like myself.
*I get it’s offered as a free game, but the subscription fee is way to much I feel. If there was an option to make a one time purchase and remove the ads that play when you die or move to a new level, that would be great. Make it $2.99 - $4.99 to remove those ads permanently. I know I and others would buy that in a heartbeat.
*Add a one time purchase as an option for players to buy a second chance permanent unlock. Upon dying, you can have a second chance. $0.99 - $1.99.
*For the Outifts, you should make outfits provide different perks. As an example: make some outifts have a +1 shot and -2 damage or +2 shot and +1 damage. Something like that.
*Also you should add a one time 1,000 coin purchase for $2.99.
I’m a firm believer in not making games pay to win, as this will just make the game not fun anymore... Though these options will provide both the devs with continuous funding to further their progress and also will benefit the players as well. The pricing is also very fair and shouldn’t be changed. Well, shouldn’t be changed if you’d like to make good money anyways.
Ketchup nicely done
I just got this today and I’m on like level nine is so fun and I got four guns already I’ve been playing it for like maybe 30 minutes but I just can’t have a better game this game rocks also ketchapp I love all of your games I have been playing a bunch of them and love them so much especially this one I can’t stop it’s so addicting it’s so fun Mr. gun is the best and the people who made ketchapp. It would be an honor to meet you and maybe make a game of my own and make people happy is what you do whatever I’m sad I’ll play the games on my phone of kachapp and also sorry for not spelling the name right but I really wanted to say is amazing game thank you so much for making my day also whenever I’m sad I’ll play kachapp
in it always cheers my day up thank you guys so much
Great game but a few suggestions.
Really great game. Absolutely addictive. But a few suggestions. First off, once you beat all the bosses and unlock the guns there really isn’t much to look forward to. You continuously play levels to get coins. An update I’m sure is coming that allows for upgrade of weapons. But I can’t imagine how much that would change considering it’s not that difficult and having higher damage or more accuracy wouldn’t be a significant help. Not sure how space weapons will enter and what’s the purpose but I’m exited for that. Maybe make a more difficult mode or Incorporate a level system or an Infinite mode. Also maybe can have a feature where they can fire first. But honesty can’t stress enough how great the game is in its early making.
I love it but to make it better...
I absolutely love this game and it’s the greatest one ever. Although to make it better I suggest the ability to look back at your previous bosses on the blacklist. Also when you upgrade enough of your gun you should be able to EVOLVE your new powered up gun. So when you evolve your gun the range, damage, and especially bullet count would dramatically increase.(Well an extra 1-2 bullets for snipers 2-3 for sidearms and 3-4 or 3-5 for smg’s. Also I would like to see assault rifles which has a shorter range than snipers but and lower damage but compared to the smg it would have lower to equal fire rate but an increase to damage. Thanks for reading this review and acknowledging my feedback hope to see these in game keep on working on this game and future projects.

Great and entertaining game!
By o ReFleX o
I can pretty much play this game for a long time as the levels are fairly simple but also challenging depending on the weapon. A nice and simple game without complex buttons.
There could be some improvement in adding challenges for reaching certain scores, like I recently hit 100K on continuous score expecting to receive an outfit but there was none.
My main overall criticism of this game is the “elite access” which requires that you pay a monthly subscription of 4.99 to receive 1 gun and maybe a few outfits? Seems quite ridiculous to pay for a monthly subscription to a simple game. I haven’t payed but i can’t imagine lots of people spending money for this access.
Awesome simple game
I’ve played a lot of ketchapp’s games and most of them are pretty fun, until they start constantly crashing and slowing my phone down. This one does occasionally crash, but hardly ever and it hasn’t slowed my phone down at all so far. It’s very simple and fun. The ads that you’re forced to see are short, infrequent, and not intrusive at all. The ads that are voluntary give helpful bonuses, but the bonuses aren’t necessary at all so you don’t feel forced to watch the ads.
Edit: I changed my rating from 5 to 3 stars. This game is dead. The devs are no longer releasing updates for it in favor of whatever other ad ridden games they’re coming out with now. This game isn’t even completed. There are still in game features that are supposed to be there but probably never will be.
I don’t usually write reviews but I truly love this game. I’ve logged enough hours to unlock every single weapon, even space guns... except the Elite gun. I can’t imagine paying $5.99 per week. Honestly this is my favorite mobile game but I can’t imagine paying that. Anyways, I’m so excited to see new weapon packs in the future and weapon upgrades. Only suggestion is that sometimes getting coins is a real grind and I wish certain things, like mega (x10) headshot streaks would get you more coins. And for the record, best guns are the A1-85 and Plasma MG hands down. Have high scores above 100K with both. Great game and I look forward to seeing it get even better, but seriously drop the weekly subscription...
Some ideas for a update. Without a update for game play I prolly won’t play much longer.
7 guns and 4 outfits at level 26. I’ve been using the same gun since level 8 due to the lack of better options and how hard it is to get new ones. After killing 5 bosses only getting either 25,50,or 75$ is waaay to low of a reward. Each boss should give u a spin for a random gun. And each spin should increase the money reward the higher you go. The outfit upgrades should also have armor upgrades so when ur at level 26 you don’t die from 1 bullet the same as you do in level 1. Please update this game and more it more rewarding. It’s starting to get boring with the same gun and outfits with No armor after 26 levels.
It’s just a Ketchapp game. Chill.
When I looked at the reviews for this game, it was just some guy who just hated the ads. I do agree with him though. Ketchapp will place ads around every point in every game they have, whether it’s after dying or even for coins. Here’s a tip for you people who obviously are the average population, turn your wi-fi off. Without that, ads cannot load other than a few which the app has saved. There are only banner ads saved on the game.
With the wi-fi off, the game becomes much more playable, making it ideal for times without it such as in a car ride or traveling.
Now then, let’s talk about the actual game. Mr Gun is very fun to play, despite the unbalanced guns. I find coins somewhat difficult to get, and the guns pretty expensive. These are some fun challenges for me though. This game shows to be the typical Ketchapp game:
1. In it for the money.
2. Simple to the point of frustration.
3. The popular “Harder than it looks.”
I don’t hate this game, in fact, I love it. I am currently on level 201 and don’t plan on stopping anytime soon. I do recommend this neat little game ONLY to anyone who is intelligent enough to get the most out of their gameplay.
So! I play this app everyday. I find it, satisfying, fun and addictive. I am at level 203, And I don’t have elite access but I am good. I have almost all the 1-500 coin guns. And lots of outfits. I have lots of 750 coin guns and outfits too. Around 5 of each. With the new update, I have 2 of the 750 coin guns and outfits already. I love this game. It’s really fun. Like it’s so addictive. I would just like updates to come faster becuase now I want a explosive weapons and special skins that may be fortnite and pubg skins. Oh yeah, AWESOME APP!!!! Oh and by the way. ADS. I just turn on airplane mode for the time I play lol
ALSO, I haven’t bought anything. Me and my cousin play this a lot together, so yeah.
Too many ads..
I like the game, don’t get me wrong. I know you need ads to make money, but this is over the top. The game itself - 10/10 stars. The ads - 1/10 stars. You get a 30 second video ad every 3-4 rounds, which last less than 30 seconds each. I’d be willing to pay $1 or $2 to remove ads permanently, and that would benefit the devs. There are a decent amount of players. There isn’t even a remove ads option, apart from “Elite Access,” which is free for 3 DAYS, then is $5.99 PER WEEK. SIX DOLLARS PER WEEK! JUST TO REMOVE ADS FROM SUCH A SIMPLE GAME AND GET SOME ARMOR AND A NEW GUN... ridiculous. Fix this... Ketchapp is one of the only large devs I know to do something like this, and it veers me from their games, which are all good. Let me remove ads with one, non-recurring purchase...
Great game, great devs
Goddam love ketchapp. I’ve been playing a bunch of voodoo games which freakin pale in comparison. There’s not an ad in here that lasts longer than five seconds (with the exception of the voluntary ads to get a second life). I understand that app makers need to make money with advertisements, and I feel that the short 5 second skippables get the money while still respecting the players time.
Also look at the other reviews. Somebody requested customization of character on April 21st. On April 27th, I updated the game and there was a “coming soon: character customization” tab. Absolutely amazing service to the player. I’d give it more stars if I could.
Ad overboard and bad transactions.
This game has a simple and fun premise but is ridiculous with its ads every time you do anything. For example if you miss in this game you lose the level makes sense, add an ad after I lose would be fine if the gameplay lasted for a while. But here levels last for like 20 seconds and will lose a lot, which is the point of the game. So to get rid of the adds how much do you need to pay? 6$ EVERY SINGLE WEEK! this game is not worth that much. MMOs don’t even go this far with subscriptions most of the time and the cost thousands to make. This is sad due to the game being fun but having that cut off behind a rather intimidating paywall is idiotic....well by all of the 5 star 1-5 word reviews I’m guessing that subscription money comes in handy.
By Mr MotoX2
Only reason I give it a 3 Star is because of 1 thing. When you are playing and you complete a level. If you unlock a gun at the end of that level/blacklist it automatically equips it. So when you have a really high score like myself and are using a sniper and get to 30k points then swap over to a nighthawk thing with no range and no damage it ruins everything and there is no way to stop this. Please fix this. Also the rate at which you obtain coins in my opinion needs to be increased just a tiny bit. I’m at level 230 and haven’t even unlocked half the things. Overall though other than those things, the game is great. Can’t wait until we can upgrade guns.
Awesome Game! New Game Mode?
This is a great game. I’ve been playing for about a week and that is a lot longer than most games stay on my phone. I love how many different guns and costumes there are. I think it would be fun if you added another game mode where you turn the phone/tablet horizontally and then duel with another player. Each player could choose their own gun and then fight to the death. They could have a health bar so that shooting first doesn’t automatically win. Kind of like a boss battle against another player. Love your game! Keep up the great work!
Almost five stars but a “subscription”?
By Erick Guy
This game is fun, addictive and the aesthetic is nice and simple. There’s a wide and expanding assortment of weapons and the skins are great. I’m very excited to see what the “upgrades” to weapons are. After almost 600 levels it’s still just as fun I do wish there was a bit of variety in the grunt like enemies maybe one that can take two hits or one that is immune to body shots. But the only thing that prevents me from giving this 5 stars is the whole “subscription” deal. I’d happily pay one fee to unlock the extra features like armor but a “subscription” is insanely greedy in my opinion..
Fun but audio issues
I like a majority of Ketchapp’s work. Just like the other games, this one is quick to pick up and easy to move up in the ranking. Replay value is kind of low once the bosses become repetitive but kudos for adding Rick and Morty and many other evil movie character cameos. However this app lost a lot of credit for me when I realized that even if I have my phone on silent some ads will start blasting audio. So PRO TIP: don’t play this one at work.
other than that it’s fun for the first few days. The ad interruptions are relatively low. So thumbs up to that. Otherwise it’s just a simple game that you will get bored of quickly.
By I jacked a pie
Great game, I love the oh so satisfying sound of “headshot... unstoppable” but it would be nice for a stats page that showed total kills, h/m ratio, etc. it would also be pretty neat if there was an endless mode that just threw bodies at you until you missed to really push you and as it progresses through levels (maybe 15-20 people with a boss at the end), it got more difficult in some way. Like maybe the aiming moves faster or you move further away from the enemy. Just some suggestions and some things that I feel a lot of us would like to see in future updates.
I really like this game, it is so addicting. I’m on level thirty four and this is my first day playing. The only bad part about the game is it’s ads. It cost $5.99 A WEEK to get rid of adds. It also comes with a skin and a gun. It is a cool skin and a good gun tho. I won’t be buying it sadly. The creators should put that as a bundle or a VIP membership and give turning of ads permanently a separate thing. They should also have limited time skins or guns that you can get by paying or doing a challenge. Overall, it is an amazing game.
I rarely right any reviews for apps or products, I just felt like it’s not worth my time, but this time I have to give the developers a huge thumbs up! Great game! Haven’t had this much fun with a smaller game like this one, last time I enjoyed playing a time killer was temple run and fruit ninja, this game had the same quality and effort put into it! and most importantly, you can enjoy it without spending money! Thank you to whoever designed and worked on this game, you guys gave me a really good time!
