The Legend of Holy Archer (EN)


The Legend of Holy Archer (EN)'s review

by Peter Warrior

A medieval archery game

  • Outstanding 3D graphics
  • Easy to learn, but quite tricky
  • It needs more characters and a storyline
  • A little bit of realism would have been deeply appreciated

"Breath, pull, kill"

This is the English version of The Legend of the Holy Archer.

Archery hasn't been treated well in videogames, save a few exceptions, always set aside as secondary characters or units. This Legend... doesn't come to fill that gap, but at least combines the best of physics and an attractive 3D interface. Well, at least for as long as you understand "the best of physics" as "impossible physics", because that's what this game is about. Your Holy Archer may have an awful aim, but has the sacred ability of controlling the sacrosanct arrows in their flight by swiping on screen. As arrows meet obstacles in their path, it's more about avoiding trees and columns rather than calculate trajectories and angles.

Graphics are awesome, and a wise option to select low, mid or high quality allows to run this game in not so top notch devices. Monsters' animations are great, too, and there are a lot of items to unlock. Regrettably, it's very hard to get used to arrows' flight so don't try to be too tricky when you start and aim to the bulk.

Recommended if only for its originality and outstanding graphics. We should wonder if the next batch of Japanese games will be like this.
