App description: Who said one man cant win a war?

Alone against all, you must defeat the vicious enemies attacking your kingdom with only your bow. Adjust the force and the direction of your arrows to inflict maximum damage. Battles are won a day at a time, and enemies will attack until the sun sets. As your hit count rises, you can obtain enhanced arrows and even spells to cast on your foes.

* Tap the screen, then hold and release your finger to take a shot. The longer you hold, the stronger the force of your arrows
* Spend points to increase your abilities at the end of the day (strength, accuracy, life, and mana)
* Upgrade your quiver with enhanced weapons, including poisonous and freezing arrows
* Learn magic spells to cast on enemies in the battlefield
* Shoot elements in the background to get weapons and first aid
* Fun squared paper designs which change every day
* A game with infinite lifespan
* Show all your friends that you are the Ultimate Warrior through the Facebook Connect feature!

There's a lot of challenge to be had with this game, especially since you have to be precise to get those headshots or hit critical points on the enemies. I would have to say, they should tone down the devil character (as you can see in the picture, he's in Ice Element form...the blue one, if you haven't figured that out already...or the one with horns if you're color blind) because if you don't have the opposite element which you can attain through shooting birds in the sky carrying a certain element which you can see below, it takes forever to kill him, multiple head shots and critical shots while he's pounding on you & when he gets that close, it's very difficult to shoot those behind him because he acts as their shield:


(The bird is currently carrying the ice element)

After ever level or "Day" (which it's referred to in game), you get skill points to upgrade certain abilities:



When you purchase the Elements, which you can see I upgraded the fire to 1, you get to activate it during a day fight and it affects all enemies on field, so that comes in handy. I didn't see much of a difference after upgrading accuracy that much because you basically aim the bow yourself, so I kept upgrading strength if anything.

I do have one really big complaint, & it's this:



The leaderboard can be taken over by one single individual...lame.

Anyways, the game is good. Very smooth, fun gameplay for the casual gamer, heck it could be fun for the hardcore gamer too if you want to see how accurate you are. At $.99, it's not bad, it's actually pretty fun...in fact, I think I'm going to play it again .



& No problem .
