Arrow Fire, available for Android phones and tablets through the Google Play store, is a simple looking game that is actually a bit more complicated than it initially looks. Like the best mobile games, this mix of simplistic gameplay and clever puzzles makes Arrow Fire far more interesting than it first appears, as it turns into a pretty addictive title.
The game sets you with the task of firing arrows into a spinning target. Tapping the screen will fire an arrow, and it will fly straight upwards to the intended area. The difficult part comes from various obstacles getting in your way as they fly back and forth across the screen, with differing types and patterns to beat. However, the true problem is avoiding arrows that have already found their target, which automatically makes the target smaller and smaller as each level progresses, with the window for successfully completing a shot also becoming ever smaller.
Here, straight from the developer, are the app’s best features:
Grab your bows and make sure your arrow hit the bull’s eye in this excitement filled puzzle !
More than 100 levels of most frustrating yet addictive gameplay.
Shoot through the obstacles, ensure you hit the target.
Eco advice – stop being silly shooting apples or being a heartless hunter, hunting helpless animals.
Be a pro archer like Robin hood, play this real challenging archery game !
Test your shooting skills along with challenging your mind in the brain teaser !
The graphics here are functional but attractive, with the most important aspect of a reaction based game like this, the frame rate, running as smooth as you would want it to. The collision detection is also spot on, which is another essential for a game of this type.
There are over 100 levels to play through, which should keep you going for a while, and the included leaderboards add an extra bit of legs to the game. The game is ad-supported, with a small fee to remove the ads if you want to.
Overall, this is a fun and surprisingly challenging game, with quite a bit of content. Granted, it isn’t the most complicated game in the world, but it will provide you with a good few hours of entertainment for free.
