Since Super Happy Fun Fun’s release of the 3D shooter for iPhone and iPod touch at the end of October, Big Buck Hunter Pro has become an instant staple on the App Store, featured immediately by Apple as “What’s Hot” and at the top of “Best Hunting and Fishing Games,” and quickly moved up the iTunes charts into the Top 100 Overall, Games, Sports and Arcade lists.
