The full app is a great game to play. I'm sure the lite version will bring new players interested in a good "time-waster" for that open moment or two throughout the day.

Got a great review for the game already, worthy of posting here and sharing with the world:
Worst iDevice game ever created?
by Grist
Yes, this is the worst.
Its unfortunate people dont realize the worth of a Free game
But it doesn't bother us in the slightest

Our reaction?

Probably tied for the worst game award

On second thought, I have played a few other games that are just as bad as this one. My major gripe is that the previous version of this game was a lot of fun. For reasons unknown, the developer pulled that version from iTunes and replaced it with this accelerometer fiasco.

Thanks for posting here to clarify yourself

This is NOT a replacement for the original 3D OLYMPUS ARCHERY but a free spinoff, notice the keyword "Lite" in the games title.

The reason the other version was pulled was because of a very serious bug that was present in the 1.30 Update.
This has already been corrected and is waiting for Apple's approval before it goes live again (1.31), and should be available sometime during the weekend without having to repurchase.

But like I said in the previous post, you are free to react and say what you want about the game:
the more you tell us the better the job we can do next time

To the developer: Thanks

I appreciate the information you've just provided. When your next release for the "non-Lite" game version is posted on iTunes I will revise my recent post for that game which, as I mentioned, I enjoyed a great deal until the current bug was introduced. The accelerometer-controlled arrow mode that you've just introduced in both the free and fee versions of your game is, in my view, a very bad design decision. Before you introduced this new control mode you had a successful control dynamic that came remarkably close to simulating the actual experience of shooting an arrow.
