Based on the in-game help, I would have thought that tapping the screen would fire the gun and that pressing the screen longer would make the gun go into the other modes. That lines up with what I remember from the Apple IIgs port from years ago (when the mouse button served a similar function, if I recall). However, tapping the screen just moves my character.

What am I supposed to be doing instead?

According to this review, tapping on the bottom, in the corners, is the correct gesture control for the gun. Tapping everywhere else continues to be for controlling Lester. That's the only mention I could find online that specifically detailed the controls for shooting.

Good call -- it didn't occur to me to look for iOS port information. Only the lower left corner activates the gun, it turns out. The lower right corner kicks, which I already knew. Also, your link does not work on desktop browsers. If you would like to edit, I'd be glad to award the bounty. – Andrew Jan 2 '13 at 22:26
Good catch! Link is fixed. – SevenSidedDie Jan 3 '13 at 1:46
