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- 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

yeah its a game about achery and doesnt look bad, but sadly it almost got the same "funny" controls as surgeon simulator.

for my taste its just dumb to sell something like that and im not even sure why i already own it.

well, probably it has been in some random indie bundle, where it belongs.

i bet it would be fun with normal controls, but like this? no, thanks.

game level: idle cards, uninstall and forget.

Probably archery is a game made by South East Games. As you know, it's a game about archery. There are a handful of gamemodes from classic target practice to zombie soccer. There is also multiplayer so you and your friends can have fun as a team, or enemies. I had a bunch of fun playing this game. I reccomend this game to anyone who likes archery, a challenging game, or someone who has that extra wallet money that they don't know what to spend on. For five dollars, it's a steal.

Well, that's my review for probably archery! if you like it and it helped you decide if you want to get it or not, please leave a thumbs up!

MY GOD THIS GAME! It took me almost two freaking hours to complete target practice, eight simple still targets. I can't even think about ADVANCED targets where they actually move around.
The controls are god awful, half the time you're struggling to nock the friggin arrow because even though my hand is right on the string it says my arrow is too far to nock, because apparently your balloon head can't send the appropriate brain signals to your sack of potato body to complete a simple task! Then if you miss (witch you will, many many times) it's such a pain in the butt to draw your arrow and line your arms up correctly, and make a sad attempt at shooting. I could keeping going on on how bad the controls are but, for the sake of this review I'll leave it for you to experience. The game was meant to have bad controls after all.

Despite how much I wanted to shoot myself with an arrow and end it all, I can't help but love it. I love the charm of the game and the feel of it, the sountrack is great, and it's a very humorous game.
As much as I wanted to rage quit I persevered, and it felt so rewarding when I finally beat target practice. I could live in peace knowing I wasn't a failure at life. Once you think you get the feel for the game you are challanged with a whopping 10 game modes! (including Target Practice, Advanced Target Practice, The Berserker, Don't Miss, Warband witch is my personal favorite, Eggsterminator, The Noose, Zero G, Zombie Soccer, and Multiplayer). Each having their own unique premise and challanging your archery skills to the max!

Do I recomend this game? Surprisingly I do, but that is IF you're up for the challange and how well you can handle rage inducing controls. Like I said it feels good when you manage to beat target practice or any of the others, I mean can you blame your potato sack for being such a horrible archer? Seriously if you're looking for a game that offers a challange look no farther. 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.

Once in every billion years, the stars will line and fire and blood will rain from the heavens. My friends, as it has been prophesied in the Book of Revelation, the time has finally come.
But there is still hope for our salvation

"Blessed is the one who reads the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who play Probably Archery and take to heart whatever is developed in it, because the time is near"
John 13:37

This is a passage that has been ignored by the Catholic church for almost 2000 years. It has been dismissed and cited to be just a typo. For years I believed this fallacious tale and believed there will never be a holy Archery game
But I was wrong
On February 6th, our lord and savior was born
My friends, our time is short. It is the 11th hour. If you wish to see the next life, you can be saved if you buy a copy of Probably Archery
God have mercy on console sinners who cannot play this game

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'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.
