I actually didn't notice from the video that you don't control the arrow's rotation, so there's a lot of skill involved in getting the timing just right for the shot. Be prepared to hit the restart button a lot if you want to get three stars on every level. It's pretty strict, with three stars on many levels requiring a specific sequence of shots, almost introducing a puzzle element to the game as you try to figure out how to clear the level most effectively. Perhaps an easy mode with a slower rotation (or even manual aiming) would be a good idea for younger or less skilled players.

Also, I was surprised to see the game doesn't support retina display, which I thought was fairly standard by now. It's not a huge deal though, the game is bright and pretty to look at regardless.
