iPhonetunes review: Robin Hood – the Return of Richard
iPhonetunes review: Robin Hood – the Return of Richard

Robin Hood, the famous hero who robbed the rich to give to the poor, has my name and therefore I like him of course. Robin was a skilled archer and swordsman fighting as an outlaw in Sherwood Forest of Nottinghamshire. But who is Richard again? Short recap…

Richard I (the Lionheart) was the late 12th century King, which Robin supported. Richard’s brother John has initially driven Robin to outlawry while King Richard was away for crusade. Robin and his comrades fight against the cruel oppression of the Norman Lords.  Thanks Wikipedia, I owe you a donation.

The game is from the touch and shoot genre, where you will have to kill as many enemies passing by, with you arch. Next to that there are also (hidden) objects that you can shoot to get bonus points. In total there are twelve levels, of which I played the three first.

According to the game description you will have to also fight super villains such as the Sheriff of Nottingham. The game has nice sound effects and medieval background music and you are encouraged when doing well.

You can scroll the screen left and right to see the enemies coming sooner and or kill them earlier. I have one consideration; why not make it auto scroll while tilting the iPhone. Now when you touch to scroll you shoot also an arrow.

The game is fun and addictive. Don’t expect too many variations in game play however. The scene-settings are pretty and change with each level.

After having played it, I wonder why he wasn’t called Robin Shoot.
