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

Probably Archery came at the end of the wave of games trying to capitalize on the success of Surgeon Simulator 2013. The most entertaining part of the game is its title. After that, it's just frustrating and painfully small. Probably not worth the buy.

No proper tutorial in a game that certanly needs one.
Every other game teaches you the stupid crap like how to use WASD to walk or to press E to interact and everytime I think: WHY do you teach me so simple stuff. Most basic tutorials are annoying and boring.

I wasn't able to figure out how to properly shoot an arrow (the only mechanic in this game).. and gave up.

probably archery is like being drunk and having no control over your own arms while trying to shoot a bow and arrow at near impossible targets. if you are looking for a game where you can shoot arrows at nothing (even with a decent amount of practice) and drop arrows all over the ground and feel like a complete ♥♥♥♥♥, then this is the game for you. there are many different exciting modes in this game to fail hard at, and with hours of practice you might be able to hit the edge of the closest stationary target in the target practice mode, then you can take 5 minutes to load another arrow and take just as long to get your arms where they were before and probably miss. if you love shooting things with bows and arrows play skyrim or farcry if you want to feel like you have ALS and a irresponsible jerk hands you a bow and says i guess you might be able to do this but probably not. then this game is for your sorry @ss and may god have mercy on your soul. -9/10

Cute, but doesn't really have the gimmick staying power that Surgeon Simulator has. The effort is respectable, but it just doesn't work well enough to carry the entire thing. Might be worth getting for a few laughs when it's pretty cheap, but not really worth full price.

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

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.

7/10

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.

Tried to shoot a target. Shot through the air instead. Tried to nock my arrow..the arrow ended up on the wrong side of the bow (making aiming impossible). Tried to shoot an apple off a guys head while he was sucking down liquid bravery....I killed he and his cronies...never quite killed the apple. Tried to eliminate a flying egg infestation....knocked over a table, destroyed a bunch of china, got three of those ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s! I then got hacked up by a warrior before I could nock an arrow. Hence the Probably in the Probably Archery title. You probably can do it....if you practice, practice, practice, lol. Try not to hurt yourself in the process.

One of a number of games that feature wrist, elbow, and shoulder controls or the like (Surgeon Simulator and Ampu-tea are a couple other titles like this). So, it can be frustrating, but the results are better when you fail miserably lol. I intend to keep letting the arrows fly.

Yet to be rated. Probably ends up a solid quiver full of arrows with a few broken shafts.

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
