Big Buck Hunter: Marksman is officially available on Android and iOS. The game had been in beta for quite some time so this should be good news to players. It’s the latest addition to the Big Buck Hunter series.

The game has players matched with other hunters having the same skill. Players are taken through different bountiful hunting sites to put their skills to the test. The key here is the farther and more accurate the shot, the more points the player earns. Those who can hit consecutive shots earn awards, which can ultimately lead to the five-star Marksman Award.

To celebrate the game's release, there’s a two-day live and virtual tournament hosted by Skillz. The 14th Annual Big Buck Hunter World Championship is taking place in Chicago and is scheduled from October 1 to October 2. The tournament is open to anyone around the world and to join, simply download the mobile game and enter the Match Code BIGBUCKZ beginning October 1.

In a statement, Skillz CEO and Founder Andrew Paradise said that this new game is an important milestone for the company as it celebrates expansion into the first-person shooting genre. He added that Big Buck Hunter has a loyal fan base and this new game introduces a new hunting experience.

Meanwhile, Play Mechanix Founder George Petro revealed that the official game release is truly a great day for them. He went on to say that they are happy to introduce this new mobile game to its fans.

For more than 20 years, the Big Buck Hunter series has built a devoted fan base worldwide. The original game has become one of the most popular arcade games and a fan-favorite bar-room pastime. The franchise has released various titles available on PC, consoles, social media platforms, and even pinball machines. Big Buck Hunter is considered, by many, as an easy game to play but hard to master.

In addition to the Big Buck Hunter series, developer Play Mechanix is also responsible for other games like Halo: Fireteam Raven, The Walking Dead Arcade, Terminator Salvation, Aliens Armageddon, and MotoGP.
