About the game Edit

The game is controlled with one finger to draw the bow and by tilting the device to aim. Shots have to deal with both distance and wind.

Game modes Edit

The game features 5 different game modes:

  • Challenge
    Do your best score in 3 sets of 5 rounds each:
    Set 1 – 5m / 10m / 15m / 20m / 25m on a static target
    Set 2 – 5m / 10m / 15m / 20m / 25m on a moving target
    Set 3 – 5m / 10m / 15m / 20m / 25m on a moving target with blockers
  • Time Trial
    Perform the best possible score in a minute only on the static target.
  • Survival
    Start with 10 arrows. Get extra arrows with good shots on target and apples. Difficulty increases each 250 points.
  • Pop Up
    Waves of randomly placed targets will appear. When the player shoots all the targets of the wave, it increases its score multiplier. Missing targets will reset the score multiplier to 1.
  • Practice
    Player can improve its skills on the training targets by adjusting the distance, the wind and the kind of target.
