March 13th, 2014

The version 1.0.5 update is a quick update before the more significant 1.1 update and adjusts the way arrows are nocked so it's more forgiving, but also adds the ability to have arrows nocked on crazier angles.

Some additions being developed for upcoming versions:
- Addition of new target challenge levels with leaderboards
- Generated daily challenge levels with leaderboards

- Server Ping times

About the Game

Manipulate your wrists, elbows and shoulders to get the arrow to the bow, draw it, aim and fire!

Probably Archery gives the player more control over the minutia of their joint movements with tons of crazy scenarios to conquer, multiplayer battles to fight and brutal target challenges to dominate.

With controls inspired by games like QWOP and Surgeon Simulator 2013, you must overcome a series of ridiculous challenges like shooting a hangman's rope, exterminating flying eggs in a china shop and stopping an apple-headed warrior in space.

Once you've mastered the way of the bow, test your skills in the online multiplayer modes. Team Deathmatch allows you to test your speed and skill against other players while the Horde mode lets you stand alongside your friends against waves of enemies.

When it's time to lay down your bow, why not pick up a cricket bat and revolver? Shoot some zombies, bash other players and kick some goals in Zoccer - Zombie Soccer. An extra mode that is practically an additional game, Zoccer delivers a multiplayer first person sports shooter experience you've never seen before.

Key Features:

  • Crazy and intense single player scenarios
  • Team Deathmatch multiplayer
  • Co-op wave-based Horde mode
  • Character customisation
  • Gamepad support
  • Razer Hydra support (currently Windows only)
  • Native Oculus Rift support
  • ... and... Multiplayer Zombie Soccer

If you like Surgeon Simulator, or QWOP for that matter, then perhaps this game is for you. Not for the impatient, this game has you using several keys to align and aim a shot, nock an arrow, and "attempt" to hit a target. Simple concept, not easy to execute. If you're willing to sit for a bit twiddling around your keyboard then maybe you'd be able to get the controls to at least shoot after about a half hour. When your patience runs as thin as mine, you'll find yourself rather frustrated rather than entertained. For those who can perform a fun run of QWOP, then go for this game because I'm sure if you can get that down, this should be a piece of cake. If you're impatient, skip it. Now excuse me while I bang the last ten minutes out of my head by smashing my head on my desk repetitively. 1/10

Probably Archery is just that, a game about archery. It seems like it's some sort of simulation, but I'm not quite sure. The controls take some getting used to, and hitting targets takes a lot of practice. The key element, fun, is missing here. There's no fun to be had, and it's all thanks to the controls. The controls are so awkward and unnatural that it takes longer to hit a target than it should.
The graphics look fine for an archery game but they won't blow anyone away.
I personally expected a more casual experience here, but I guess I should've known better. If you don't shy away from difficult games, then this might just be for you.

Probably Archery could probably try a little harder in the controls department. Some of the menus such as after a match such as Berserker cant be navigated with the controller. Using a mouse is no big deal since their just menus not gameplay parts. Playing the game is very complicated, to fire an arrow you need to adjust your two arms, each arm has three joints the, wrist, elbow, and shoulder. Once you get them aligned you can fire, the big down side is once you draw a new arrow for some reason the positions switch all over so if you miss its difficult to realign your target again. This game seems like it could be interesting if you master the controls to get a high score, but players who dont care about a high score might not be interested in this.

"Hospital Park Trespasser: Surgeon Became Archer Edition"

Concept is good but controls are awful. Unnecessarily hard and trying over and over to nock the ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥it arrow and mostly can't shoot things is ruining the game. They have to change the both-hands-elbow-shoulder-controls to something else. Otherwise this is literally bull♥♥♥♥.

In the real life, this is easier than this. Because you don't need to think about what key to press to use your respective muscles.

I don't expect them to change controls but if there will be good update about controls, i'll try the game again and edit this review. Right now, not recommended.

EDIT: Still, I don't recommend this game but since the last update, there are simplified elbow controls and nock assist. At least developers still updating the game and listening demands of players. Good to see this, keep it up guys.
