"Nothing clears a troubled mind better than shooting a bow" - Fred Bear
Experience the magic of archery with never before seen depth and challenge!
Core Archery introduces an intuitive single touch gesture to simulate the drawing, aiming and anchoring of the drawing arm. It appears as easy and simple at first, but the depth is revealed as you progress to longer distances.
For consistent good scores you need to practice your drawing, aiming and release technique. Precision and focus is the key to success in this game. Failed technique will lead to unaligned posture and you'll be surprised where the arrow flies after the release!
-Unique single touch controls
-Realistic archery experience
-9 levels with lots of challenge
-Smooth 3D graphics

(5/5) Simple yet compelling
"As an ex-club archer I can report that this game is pretty close to the real experience (even the sound), at least in terms of aiming and arrow flight. There are no silly power-ups or fancy missions to undertake - just you, the bow and standard targets set at various distances. Score at least 50 with the 12 arrows and you unlock the next target. It gets much harder as you progress and technique becomes the deciding factor. Holding the sight on target for too long makes aiming very difficult, as per the real thing. The sight is calibrated for each new distance but countering wind speed and direction is up to you to judge (a guide is given). Also as with the real thing you get worse as you tire (in this case just your eyes of course). The adverts appear every few rounds and are not too intrusive. There is an option to remove them but I have not yet felt the need to do so. This is a great app, and comes recommended, as is the developer's other app for clay shooting (which I did pay for)."

Sorry man, but the play mechanic is just lame.... Deleted.
This used to be relatively good--at least the aim was fair. Not any more. I had the circle directly on point and it read my shot as a 2. It did that twice. I couldn't shoot a real 2 if I did it blindfolded. App definitely needs a tune-up.
