Ok but too challenging and grim

The concept is cool although its a little morbid for my tastes. I don't have very good coordination and I found it really difficult to get the shots lined up. For me this isn't an app worth paying for though as a free App it would be great. Still I give a high rating because I think people with better coordination or with a bigger screen like the iPads would probably enjoy the challenge. Little morbid but still a nice app overall.

Shoot the rope archery puzzler.

This game has you using a bow, with a limited number of arrows per level, to shoot out various items and ropes on hanging men before they choke. Shooting all the ropes before the men suffocate and before you run out of arrows gets you past the level. Doing this in a timely manner and hitting other items gets you 3 stars per level. Mini games are also included every few levels. Graphics in this game are alright, but nothing amazing. I found the difficulty increases rapidly during game play. They make up for this, however, by letting you easily adjust the difficulty in-game. The controls could be better, so are slightly tricky to catch on to. Vibration seems also to be turned on by default, but this irritating feature can be turned off in settings. Overall, the game is just ok, but could be made better by including upgrades to purchase in-game via earned points. Things like upgraded, special, or extra arrows per level.

If you absolutely LOVE, ADORE, and CRAVE......

......LOTS and LOTS of advertising, then grab this one up pronto and your heart's desire will be abundantly rewarded! There are ads before, after, and during every level!!! The ads during the levels actually obstruct the view of the scoring area and the number of arrows available or remaining, essentially leaving you in the dark. NOT very nice, if you ask me. NOT very nice even if you DON'T ask me. LOL

And furthermore, if the goal is to sever the rope and let the guy down before the breath runs out of him, then why doesn't he get up and walk away after the rope is successfully cut? But no, instead, we get to hear the guy's dying groan as he falls to the ground with his legs and head and body all twisted and bent up? YUK!!! :( :( :(
