Created by Lucky Games, Archer brings the excitement of archery into your Windows Phone. If you have never tried archery before, the sport probably doesn’t seem much. It’s actually thrilling and Lucky Games has done a good job bringing it to life.
The basic gameplay of course, has you shooting arrows with a bow. It’s quite challenging (and fun) to try and hit the targets. Your goal is to score as many points as possible under 20 seconds. If you hit the bull’s eye, you will get extra time.
This is a multi-level game so you will be playing this for a while. The graphics are very smooth and the animation is fluid. Archer is great in single player mode. But it’s Play vs. mode allows you to play against another player, which is more fun. You take turns shooting and comparing scores. The game is well designed; there’s no need to worry about the game crashing while you’re in the middle of scoring run. Archer also excels in the sound department. It is the closest thing you can get to being a real archer.
To play the game, you need to pull down the bow. Move your hand along the screen to aim your arrow. Wind when you have the target in sight. To shoot the arrow, take your finger off. This sounds easy, but it takes practice. Aiming gets harder when trying to shoot a moving target. If your shooting skills are rusty, spend some time in training mode.
Archer is a free game and you’ll have a lot of fun playing it. Even if you have never picked a bow and arrow before, Archer will more than pass the time.
