I love Robin Hood. As a kid, before I discovered Dragonlance and J.R.R. Tolkien's world of hobbits and wizards; Robin Hood and King Arthur were my favorite characters of the fantasy realm. I still have the illustrated Robin Hood book my parents gave me as a pre-teen.

Nordcurrent is bringing a Robin Hood shooter to the iPhone. Unfortunately, they haven't mentioned the Android platform in the release below, but I can hold out hope.

Peace In Sherwood Forest In This Fast-Paced Shooting Game

Hood: The Return of Richard on the iPhone and iPod Touch on March

"Robin Hood is such an iconic character, and we are excited to bring
such a revered character to life on the iPhone and iPod Touch," said
Victoria Trofimova, Director at Nordcurrent. "There are thousands of

While Richard, the true King of England, is absent from his throne, his
country rages in chaos. England has been invaded, and enemies burn and
destroy local towns and villages. After the house of expert archer and

archers like himself, hides in Sherwood Forest and begins his fight
for justice. The fate of the people now lies in the player's hands!

This fast-paced shooter game for the iPhone and iPod Touch will take
players through 12 levels while defeating numerous enemies and
visiting several different medieval locations in England.  Players
will enjoy fast-paced action as they fight with super villains such as
the evil Sheriff of Nottingham.  For more information about Robin
