If you have ever had an urge to become Robin Hood for a while or enjoy shooting down skeletons with a bow and arrow then check out Terava by Julian Raschke. The game is quite unique on the app store in the sense that it’s a 2D platformer but with a lot of interactivity thrown in. You can jump on enemies or shoot them with ranged weapons (not just a bow and arrow) like a magical wand. Terava is really a mix of a platformer and an RPG, but also contains some elements thrown in from point-and-click adventure games. You grab items or open doors by touching them while other more abundant items like gold are picked up by moving your on-screen character on them. There are also various staircases to go into or caves below-ground to explore; so it doesn’t play like a traditional platformer at all but something more immersive.
