Review: ‘Earth Guard: Egypt’ is a very basic archery style game that sees you armed with a bow and arrow trying to stop waves of enemies who are trying to break into your village. There is only one way in, so that makes things easier, but the enemies (of which there are a handful of different ones) run (and I mean a super-fast sprint) towards that door. The only way you will last more than a few seconds in this game is to spam the bow and arrows, literally just pulling the trigger over and over without pulling back. OK, so there is only one level in this game, but it is free after all and if the enemies can be slowed down quite a lot this could be a fun little download. There is no scoreboard sadly and no end tally, so you have to guess what score you got, but these are small issues that could easily be fixed.
