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

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.

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.

"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.

这游戏很让人无语,首先第一个难题在拉弓,左手拿弓右手拿箭,可以移动肩膀,手肘和手腕,右手的位置必须正好移动到弓弦才能拉弓,拉弓就得调整好久。第二个问题,拉弓之后弓与箭就是一体的了开始调整射苹果还是靶子还是什么的。箭射出去那个抛物线很怪异,很难命中很小的目标。最后一个问题,每次射完箭你还要花十秒甚至更长时间调整两手位置再拉弓,总之这是个很没有意思的游戏,没看出来什么亮点。晓星我就是个游戏白痴啦,我是玩不惯这种游戏,调整位置实在是很繁琐。完全不是体育类的风格。
