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

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.

I'm sad other reviewers don't recommend it due its difficulty. If you buy an archery game and you mean only to shoot arrows like you do in Skyrim, TF2, etc, then archery isn't for you, don't buy it.

This is an archery game where you take control of every single move you make:
Left upper arm
Left forearm
Left fist
Right upper arm
Right forearm
Right fist

You take an arrow, put it on the bow, aim and shoot, simple as that but it isn't simple.
It's like Surgeon Simulator, I'm a bread, QWOP, Octodad but with bows and arrows.


PROS
+ Kinda unique
+ Fun
+ Hard, but not THAT hard.
+ Nice theme (well, I've always liked archery)
+ Various game modes

CONS
+ Bad models, you aren't even a person :/
+ Takes some time to fully understand how to properly control it.
+ Not taken very seriously, it had potential.



It isn't great but it isn't bad either, I liked it, it's a casual game 7/10

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.
