Windows 8.1 App Watch: Archery Blitz

One thing you be sure of, in the world of mobile apps, is the fact the sheer amount of clones. Not everything is original, but that does not make games like Archery Blitz any less fun.

You can classify this as being in the Angry Birds category β€” only instead of slinging furious birds you are shooting arrows at zombies. When in doubt, always use zombies? Exactly. The only things different is the blitz part, things get quite busy and intense onscreen.

Anyway, the game mechanics are quite similar to the worldwide sensation, from rotating your character to changing the angles, releasing when you are satisfied, and hoping for the best. Depending on the type of arrow, it will either fly on its own, or a player can manipulate its trajectory as needed.

The official description:

β€œArchery Blitz will make you take out your bow and arrow & will bring out the bowman in you! The game offers intuitive controls, fantastic physics, and a beautiful design. Archery Blitz includes 120 levels of bow and arrow fun, combined with 4 extremely fun unique modes. You will absolutely love Archery Blitz and it will quickly become the best archery game to play.”

So you get 120 levels of bow and arrow fun in this free to download game.

Controls are, as expected, responsive. Mouse and touch, both work well. And the same can be said of the presentation β€” the visuals although not exactly top notch, have their own distinct style. Universal app, works on all versions of Windows, x86, x64 and ARM.
