Description: You are…ARCHER E. BOWMAN, Rampart Hero! Take to the wall with your trusty bow and defend the kingdom from beastly hordes! It was supposed to be a quiet day on the wall – will you survive the onslaught? Unlock magic arrows such as the BOOM-Stick & the Shocker! Teach your enemies a lesson they’ll not soon forget and become…Champion of the Realm!

It was just another quiet day of guard duty… manning your post atop a wall guarding one of the outer approaches to the Kingdom. No reported monster activity in this area for generations… but today that is about to change. 28 waves of enemies and an evolving environment offer an arrow slinging challenge as different enemies attempt to breech the wall.

Review:  I have to say I didn’t find the Daydream version of Archer E. Bowman as easy to play as the Gear VR version. Having to use the same button as the move controls often led me to moving backwards instead of shooting at peak times. But to be fair there isn’t a whole lot of buttons on the Daydream controller, so I suppose they did the best they can (but that doesn’t mean I have to like it). When it comes to graphics they have done a great job in making it look pretty much the same as the Gear VR version which is nice. But at the end of the day it’s all about how well a game plays and Archer E. Bowman is great fun to play. Sure it gets repetitive quickly, but at least you get some variation in canyon design and the types of enemies appearing.
