In ancient times, people used to hunt animals and their enemies using bows and arrows. Archery is now a sport. Although you can play the Archery game solo, the game becomes more exciting when someone challenges you or wants to play with you. You can’t force people to play a bow and arrow game with you, but why convince or force others when you can play the game on your phone? You’ll find many online/offline single/multiplayer bow and arrow games on iTunes and Android. Here are the top archery games among the lot:
Best bow and arrow games
According to its developer, Archery Master is the top bow and arrow game for mobile devices. You can play Archery Master in one of these two modes – Normal and 1 vs 1 Online. The online mode is locked. You must have enough coins to unlock it. The Normal Mode has many levels, and each level has several sub levels. Only level 1 is unlocked. Before starting the level, Archery Master shows the score required to complete the level and the minimum rings that your arrow must hit. It also displays the number of times you can miss the target. The game features lovely scenery that features moving clouds, birds, trees, etc. It also plays a beautiful animation when the arrow is released from the bow and hits/misses the target. Archery Master indicates the direction of the wind. It also lets you pause the game.
StickMan Bow Masters
StickMan is a fast-paced bow and arrow game wherein the player has to knock down the other player (robot) from the base with the help of arrows. The computer controller character will fire arrows repeatedly toward you. You can hit these arrows with your arrow or target the character’s body part. When the arrow hits the character (target), StickMan will show blood-spilling animation, and when the character falls off the base, it will play a sound. Once you knock down the computer-controlled player, the game will display another character on the screen. StickMan doesn’t have beautiful graphics like Archery Master, but it is fun to play.
Gibbets Bow Masters
In Gibbets, you’ll find two ragdolls hung by their neck on a rope on the same pole. The rope is your target. Next to the ragdoll, you’ll find a progress bar. The progress bar indicates the remaining life. You must hit the rope with your arrow before the life reaches 0. Gibbets is a challenging game as the rag dolls are constantly moving 20 to 30 degrees. If the ragdoll is right in front of the bow, it is easy to hit the rope, but if it is at a different angle, the chances of the arrow hitting the ragdoll will be more.
Archery Shooting is a larger game than Archery Master, Gibbets, and StickMan. It has excellent graphics and features 14+ stages. The game highlights the stages on a map and asks you to complete the challenge within some time without wasting the 5 lives assigned to you and without quitting the game in the middle. If you leave the game in the middle, your life will reduce. In AS, your targets can be moving objects, fruits, boards, frames, etc. The game features locked arrows and bows of different styles. You can unlock these items after collecting a good number of coins.
You’ll find a moving bow and arrow and a target in this game. The players are given a set of arrows. They must observe the two things carefully and tap on the screen when they think the arrow will hit the target once released. You must collect as many points as possible by shooting the arrows on the target. You can play Archery Black in two modes – solo and CPU. If you choose the CPU mode, the CPU will control the bow and arrow. The CPU will attempt to hit the target and score more points than you when your turn is over.
Tiny Archers is the best archery game on our list. In this game, the character, aka archer, is stationed on a tower and is equipped with a fixed number of arrows. Instead of hitting objects with the arrow and scoring points, you must protect your character from creatures that will come running near your tower. If you miss two or more creatures, the creatures will climb on each other so that they can reach your character and assassinate it. The creatures may also blow up the tower. Tiny Archers feature different styles of arrows. It also features 5 locked archers that you can unlock only after earning many coins. The Tiny Archers game has 20+ levels and beautiful graphics.
