Product Description

Corrupt-O-Corp. has kidnapped your son and it's up to you to save his life. They are holding him ransom for blueprints of a secret government weapon, and they know you were assigned to the project. If they got their hands on the blueprints they could use it to start a war. You have no choice but to face them head-on. Luckily, you have natural hunting skills and know how to use a bow. All you have to do is head towards Corrupt-O-Corp's headquarters and silently take out their goons along the way. If you can make your way through the city and infiltrate their base, you will be able to rescue your son. And when you find the man in charge... he'll know he chose the wrong stickman to mess with!

How can utter trash like Bow Assassin ever get released? There is no actual story (or point); it is just level after level of ricocheting shots off of white blocks, that are slightly grayer than the other white blocks. If you do it right, the assassin will kill his stick figure target and you get to move on to the next level.

I really can't find one nice thing about this game, and have no positive things (at all) to say about it.

- The controls are terrible and overly sensitive. You have two circles that are controlled by touching. One changes the angle while the other takes care of power. They often interfere with each other and if you try to change one, you will often change the other as well.

- There are broken features right in the game. For example, you have "Shots" displayed at the bottom of the screen, but this number never changes from 000 - no matter how many you fire.

- Sound is lame. The (virtually) same beat plays every level and the effects are just as bad. You hear the same grunts, arrow sounds, and shatter noises level after level.

- The app crashed twice in the amount of time I spent with it.

- It has unnecessary and extensive network permissions while being a single player game. There are NO ONLINE features here. Moreover, there is network traffic WHILE you play the game. Why is this happening?

- There are a lot of false reviews on this site. Most of them claim the game is amazing and give it a five star rating.

- The graphics are downright horrible. Stick figures and blocks, all done in greyscale (with some red thrown in). There are also arrows, but that shouldn't surprise you given the title of the game.

1.0 out of 5 stars I tried, I honestly did September 1, 2012
Verified Purchase
This game is really frustrating to me. I seriously wanted to give it an honest try so I was able to complete two missions, but the third one is beyond annoying. No I have to take that back; it isn't the challenge that is annoying more-so than the controls. The controls of this game are horrible! They are really sensitive but seem to go to the same two poses. I don't know how many times I shot that damn arrow in the first mission, but it was quite a while.

It's a nice concept (although there is no real storyline or explanation on why you are trying to kill people with a bow and arrows); in fact a really good concept but the execution is deplorable. The stick-figure-ness doesn't really bother me, yet it makes me wonder how much effort was actually put into the production of this game. It is a shame that aiming and shot power ups are done at the same time, makes aiming awkward. If you were able to aim, and then hold for the amount of power that you would like to apply then that would work in this kind of game. But it's hard to even keep your aim because there is no real structure allowed for it.

Another negative are the permissions. Why do you need WiFi access (et. al) when you do nothing with it? Not only did they not give the time to think about a concept for their own game, but they didn't think for possible excuses for their permissions. This will be deleted promptly from my KF.

1.0 out of 5 stars Permissions September 1, 2012
By Felix
Normally I don't review an app if I don't download it. Over the past couple weeks though, the permissions on the FAOTD have been ridiculous, including this game. The permissions are simply intrusive. Allowing access/information to my wifi/network and open network sockets?! I don't think so.

3.0 out of 5 stars In large tablets it's playable(somewhat) in phones... no September 1, 2012
By 14nm01
Verified Purchase
The controles are very sensitive, and in phones this makes it unplayable. On my tablet I was able to somehow get through all the levels, almost by blind luck. This game is also short (once you clear the third stage you see a coming soon messege)This game took one hour of my life, and it did what I expected it to... Keep me entertained. But now im uninstalling, it's not worth the memory space.(Coby kyros 10.1)

3.0 out of 5 stars Way too hard for the first few levels... September 1, 2012
Verified Purchase
This game is kinda frustrating. I don't really get it. The first level took me two minutes. It should have just been a tutorial on how to do it!!! I had no idea what I was doing at all. I just got this as the faotd... but if you actually are thinking about paying for this... I wouldn't.... you won't be very happy.

After reading the scathing reviews this morning, I just I had to try it for myself to see if it could really be as bad as people were saying. Sometimes playing a really bad game can be as entertaining as playing a great one.

In a word, I found the game to be very "average". The game is far from perfect, and I'm not even sure I would call it good, but it's definitely not deserving of all the 1 stars.

I saw a lot of people complaining about lousy controls. To me, they seemed ok. You can control the angle and strength of each shot, and I found there to be enough fine control to accomplish the task. The game also shows you the angle and strength of your previous attempt so that you can make small adjustments and dial in the correct shot. It would be nice if it displayed a trajectory prediction to make aiming a bit easier, but it is playable without one.

I also saw a number of people commenting on the difficulty of area 1, level 5. The level is very difficult, but not impossible. I had to move onto area 2 because I was getting nowhere after 5 minutes of wasted arrows. This level should be moved to later in the game so as not to frustrate the player just as they're getting started. After completing the remaining levels in areas 2 and 3, I came back and was able to beat this level and subsequently the rest of area 1. The trick is to find just the right combination of angle AND strength. There were other levels that demanded a lot of precision, but this was by far the hardest and most frustrating to dial in.

The game only has 30 levels in total, with a 4th area "coming soon". The entirety can be completed in about half an hour, so it doesn't score high marks for length.

This is a pretty basic, but fun and addictive game once you get the hang of it! You don't need crazy grahics to make a good game, a stick figure will obviously work! I like it
