Holey moley, grinding was never more fun. But the game already gives you tons of gold.
Looking for hidden treasure, trying to get an S or hit specific targets...
The tension! Enemy has only 500 hitpoints left and you're down to 1-2 arrows...

So satisfying when, with a thunder, your arrow plunges deep into the eye of an enemy.

Default The Legend of Holy Archer - SummerTimeStudio Co., Ltd [Universal]

Playing this a lot since i discovered it... And im enjoying just shooting things and magically control my arrows. Give it a shot (pun intended), you wont be disappointed.

There's only small ads up the top but there's a $3 IAP to get rid of it.

There's a bit of exploration involved, and the visuals are nice. Set the visuals to Best if you think your device can handle it. I play this on an ipad mini at Best option, and it plays smoothly, but it freezes for about a second when starting a new mission before i can start playing which doesnt affect the game at all.

Also, the game has IAPs, but the loot you get in the game is so generous, im not sure why the IAP exists, except for the remove ads one.

Think of the game as a first person Angry birds, but with a fantasy theme, great graphics, awesome gameplay, and one which you control the arrow similar to how you play games like verticus.

Highly recommended freemium game! Definitely a freemium model at its best!

Dood... Beat me to it. I also created a thread, but posted impressions rightaway.

Look for the gold orbs... They will one hit kill when you hit it with one arrow! Instant S rank!

Errr, or switch to flight mode to disable apps.
But I think 3 bucks are justified, mate. Buying it.

I think the 2 seconds wait time at beginning are the texture decompression and stuff.

Which bow do you like most?

It's a 0.99$ IAP to get rid of the ads for me.

Right now im just using Vulpa... But i think the best bows are just going to be the end game bows. We'll see if elements play important parts later on.

Woh... Really? Imma check again.

You're right, it's a buck, and now it's bought!

One of my candidates for best freemium games ever...

Yeah it says "Do you want to purchase one release ad for 0.99$" so i'm guessing from that weird translation that this IAP should remove any ads... Or maybe just release them into the wild

I've been dying for a good archer game on ios and finally it's here.
You know a game is good when you find yourself making funny noises and get totally immersed. And that's what it did the moment i fired my first arrow.
Removing ads was 0.89 for me and a no brainer after the first stage.
Really,really awesome. Good catch,thanks for the find!
