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

Pro:
Single, multi & Co-Op play
Steam cards & achieves
VR support
Lowish minimum system specs
Good concept

Con:
X-platform (so it's buggy on multiple OSs)
Limited actual gameplay
$5.49 for a proof of concept level game
11/10 frustration factor

Overall:
I really want to like this game. The problem is I don't. It's not much of a game. What gameplay there is is just an exercise in frustration. I can't get far enough to find out if there is actual fun in this game, but the first part sucks so I suspect the rest is just as bad.

Only grab this game when it's 90% off and you want to spend 2 hours getting frustrated.

5/10 -2 frustration, -1 limited actual game play +1 concept = 3/10

I have never negatively judged a game as quickly as I have Probably Archery, and I hope I never get another game that gives me the same reaction as this game has.

I'll preface this by saying that I don't own any of the Sungeon Simulator-type games, so maybe I'm not the target audience for this game. I received a coupon for the game and gave it a shot. While I've had buyer's remorse over games that delivered with content I wasn't expecting, this the first game I bought where I felt I was ripped off based on the underwhelming content-to-price ratio.

What this game has is promise and premise. That's where the beauty of this game ends, and the ugliness emerges. I'll start by saying the controls are not user-friendly or intuitive at all. Some games, especially games that require reflex controls, have a higher learning curve to fully get into the game. I don't think this is one of those games. I would go as far to say that it feels like the controls were selected arbitrarily, without any real feel to the mechanics.

This game, like QWOP, is a testament to how over-burdened controls hinder a game's potential, unless it's a cult-favorite. Judging by my experience, and others, this game doesn't qualify as a cult-favorite.

A game with a steep learning curve, except the more you learn the more stupid you feel. I don't like it.
