As you may already know, I SERIOUSLY love electronics and gadgets. I (not-so) recently got my hands on something that I used to think was an impossibility... an IPOD TOUCH!!!
On the iPod touch, I also discovered an awesome game called eliminate pro:
Eliminate pro is an MMOG (massively multi-player online game) first person shooter, which basically means you participate in competition matches with players from around the world, and the first one to shoot down the other players ten times wins! It requires a plus+ account to play, which is quick, easy, and safe (you don't have to add any personal information if you don't want to). You can add and accept friends, if you ever want to play a duel with them! You can also choose to send them messages in the "room" where you invite friends and start the game (I have actually been able to witness to people about Jesus through this, and have met several fellow Christians!!! :D). As you win matches, you earn "credits" which are spent on upgradeable robotic armor, weapons, and equipment (credits pop up out of the player just gunned down). Credits are only earned when your armor has "energy," which lasts for three matches (energy isn't deducted if you join a battle that has already started).
There are LOTS of different weapons, armor, etc., which you can find out more about at the Eliminate Pro Wiki. My favorite armor is the Infiltrator, and my weapons of choice would be Mag Rail, Titan, and Gravity Hook (only two weapons can be carried into battle, so I usually have my primary weapon as #1 and Gravity Hook as #2). The mag rail is a basic but powerful machine gun (seen in photo above), and the gravity hook serves as a grappling hook with limited distance which can be upgraded in inventory to reach farther.
There are also several different battlegrounds which you can also check out at the Eliminate Pro Wiki. Battles are joined with other players of similar rank (which is earned by earning credits) and skill (how often you win battles). In certain areas of the map, there are certain power-ups (such as cloaking field, jet pack, health recharge, damage amplifier, berserker shield [can be used to bash opponents with], etc.) are located, and will reappear some time after being picked up. Power-ups last several seconds, but can last longer if you upgrade your armor's "power-up" in inventory.
CLOAKING FIELD POWER-UP:

JET PACK POWER-UP IN USE:
Another way to play the game is Co-op (cooperation) mode, where you can fight computer-controlled "drones" with a friend.
You only have three minutes to defeat seven waves of different types of drones and two "bosses," making it quite a challenge. Some weapons work better than others for co-op, especially the Vaporizer and the Titan (high power rocket launcher).
Now for pros and cons:
very good graphics:
you can swim:
good selection of armors:
great selection of weapons:
friends can be added and invited:
cool battlegrounds (also called maps):
upgradeable weapons and armor:
items (color skins and temporary perks for your armor):
controls are pretty easy, it takes a lot of experience to really get good at it:
Some blood :P :
Sometimes you end up battling hackers (people can hack the game to make themselves run SUPER fast, be completely invisible, etc.):
Other players (especially hackers) can sometimes quickly steal the credits that pop out of a guy you just shot
-explore as much of the different menus as you can before you start the game
-never sell a weapon you have purchased, for you will only get back about a quarter of the credits you paid to purchase it
-only add or accept friend requests who you think you will really play with
-when shooting at an opponent, try to keep moving and keep your crosshair aimed at them
-if someone is shooting rockets at your feet, try to jump just before the rocket hits, as this will reduce damage to you or completely dodge the rocket
-try to evenly upgrade your armor and weapons, so you don't end up with tons of speed but almost no shielding, etc.
-buy the Infiltrator or Airborne armor, and upgrade it as much as you can
-always have the gravity hook as weapon #2
-only upgrade the range and rate of fire on the gravity hook
-the vaporizer can shoot through windows
This game is tons of fun, and if you have an iPod touch, iPhone, or iPad, I would HIGHLY recommend getting this game (it's free on the app store! :D).
There is WAY too much more to this game than i would care to post about, but once again, you can find out everything you need to know at the Eliminate Pro Wiki.
