Travel to exciting replications of real-world locations in an attempt to master the art of archery inArcher Diaries. At the start of each level, players are tasked with obtaining a certain score by hitting targets and other objects before the time runs out. Archer Diaries is compatible with iOS devices running iOS 6.0 or later.

In Archer Diaries, players attempt to shoot down objects, such as balloons and lamps within a strict 49 second time limit. This adds a bit of difficulty and challenge. Players are given a specific amount of three different objects to hit. They also need to reach to complete the level. Archer Diaries is an interesting archery game that goes beyond the base targets due to the variety of objects to strike down. This creates a memorable, challenging test of archery skill.

There are over 40 levels spanning three level packs. They are themed on real life places like Paris. This allows for an extensive play experience and great replay value as most levels require a couple of tries before successful completion.

Archer Diaries offers the ability to upgrade your bow using coins or gems obtained through the game. Some levels require an upgrade before players can complete them. This can cause some players to have to replay levels to afford the upgrade. However, it is rare that players need to do this.

There are a couple of drawbacks to the overall great gameplay, some UI problems and ads. The first problem is that the button that shoots an arrow is a bit small, making it a little annoying when players line up a shot and miss it because they didn’t tap the button when they thought they had. The other problem is that there are a lot of ads which makes it a nuisance. This is especially true since they seem to pop up every time players go back to the level select.

Archer Diaries is free on the App Store and recommended for people who enjoy challenging sport-based games.
