Youtube link | Pop Up


Now available for free! http://bit.ly/bbowapp

A gate to hell has opened. Devilish creatures are rising from the abyss, looking to clear off all life from our world. Will you be able to defend against the neverending rush of demons and slay their leader, the Demonlord?

Battlebow: Shoot the Demons is the perfect blend of the RPG and 2D shooter genre. Tap to aim and shoot, swipe to slash and block! Collect items and level up your character to defend against an onslaught of demons. Blast them to pieces with a vast array of weaponry and spells, including explosive arrows, cannonballs and lightnings.

The game features 4 character classes, over 140 items to loot, and a co-op mode which lets you play with a friend on a single device.

The game looks like a decent defense shooter, and that Coop mode is making this an easy decision to buy it.

Thanks. It will be free-to-play by the way.

Co-op would be pretty interesting if while one person killed dudes by swiping on them fruit ninja style, the other had to shoot them with arrows and stuff.

Will buy anything made by Ponos or Halfbrick or a dedicated indie dev. Favourite iOS games: Super Crate Box, Junk Jack, Fruit Ninja, Jetpack Joyride, Dungeon Raid, Rebuild, Rage HD, oh I could go on...

Yeah that often happens in Battlebow, only that you don't have to swipe directly on the target like in fruit ninja. That's a great idea for a future character or spell though. What I'd also like to add at some point is a spell where you pinch somewhere on the battlefield to create a hole or small volcano.

I replaced the trailer with a much juicier 480p version. Sorry for the previous version - the compression made a mess.

Remember seeing this prerelease, but it kinda slipped under my radar. Guess I'll try it now that it's free
