Description: Holopoint: Chronicle is intense archery combat. Explore the once lively island while skillfully weaving your way through waves of relentless holographic enemies, all while swiftly loosing arrows toward your targets. This skill-based game is a progression based on player skill and training rather than unlocks. Like many arcade-style games, personal progress and a high score is the goal. There are multiple areas to explore, each offering original targets and waves to progress through. Progression quickly becomes difficult and requires an active mindset. Holopoint is designed so that only a few determined archers will complete the last wave.
Review: I have to say I was a big fan of the original ‘Holopoint‘ game, but ‘Holopoint: Chronicle’ does knock it up a notch when it comes to the overall quality. Its still the same archery/workout style game, but it has much more variety in environments than the original and you no longer have to reach for your quiver which is also a nice touch as this makes the gameplay feel faster. For just £5.79 this is well worth a look and does deliver on value for money, but to make the most of this you need to keep playing it over and over and most people won’t. Sure, this is indeed better than the original, but I would only get or the other as they are too similar to be worth owning both of them.
