About This 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

This game's control is quite hard to play at first. But once you get used to it, tooking me about 1 hour, then it's very fun to play.

This game- can make you beat the cr*p out of your computer. it's an awkward FPS. And if you think the game is easy, well, it isn't. You have to manipulate you wrists, shoulders and elbows (and shoot, obviously). Although the game becomes easier once the commands are mastered and lacks replay value, Probably Archery is effective in achieving its goal: applying a cumbersome control scheme to a skill-based shooter. PA features a lot variety of gamemodes (including shooting a horde of muscular apple-headed men running towards you,training mode,some multiplayer gamemodes,etc). Once you master the controls a bit, you can find the game quite funny.

This game is absolutely zany. I'd recommend this for people who like to tinker or concentrate *REALLY* hard on playing a game well.

It's an archery simulation from a FPS view, where you have individual control of each of the shooter's arm joints. You can only control either left or right wrist/elbow/shoulder at a time, not simultaneously.

At first, it is confusing as hell. Then shortly after, it becomes a little sensible but still extremely difficult to control. With time you can learn to shoot rushing bad guys, moving targets, or even cut a rope from a person who is about to be hanged, Robin Hood style.

Check out a few videos, like this, before you purchase.

I was challenged to play this game for at least 15 minutes and then write a review. Well, after 15 minutes I still couldn’t effectively draw an arrow, knock it and successfully shoot it anywhere near the target. The controls are like trying to sew a button onto a silk shirt with square hands. This game has your hands all over the keyboard. So I moved onto another mode after failing at target practice. I found 10 modes, such as; the berserker, Noose, Zombie Soccer, and more. Since I never could master nocking an arrow and aiming, I certainly couldn’t play any of these panic style modes. I wanted to write a witty review for this game, but I just want to be done and far away from it. 3/10, would SteamTroll

I bought this game to learn how to shoot a bow and arrow correctly. After hours of learning from this game, I was ready to shoot in real life. I was born for it.

I bought my items for the archery, probably... And I went outside to fire my newly bought bow. I tried to fire it, but my arm wrapped around my head and broke in 4 different areas. After 3 months or so of recovering, I tried to fire again. This time I got arrested for firing at my neighbors flying eggs, they said I was on “drugs”. But I know what I saw. I tried one last time. I grabbed my bow, I grabbed my arrows, I opened the door, and I immediately got charged by a guy with an apple on his head. I knew what to do. I was born for this. I grabbed my arrow, I took a deep breath...I brought my arrow to draw, and I bent my arm upwards sharply and shot the arrow 300 feet into the air, landing on the barba- .... Mailman...

Now I’m being charged with murder because of this horrid game.

10/10.
(No really, great game.)

Playing with Rift + Hydra

This is absolutely great fun, and it's just the perfect example of how to get the best from your Hydra. It takes a little practice to work out how to draw the bow without feeling like you've got some sort of physical deformity, but in the end it rocks like a geological formation thing.

Persist with the practice, and then have some great fun with the Warpack mode or whatever it's called - it's almost as tense as playing COD Zombies!

Its a fun game to play when you have some free time but it is extremely difficult and can make you rage quit after a bit.
