“Too often, I'm told that the iPhone cannot play hardcore games. The next time I hear this untruth, I am going to wave Archetype in front of the offender's face… Archetype is a great little multiplayer shooter.” – IGN, 8.4/“Impressive” game score

“Archetype delivers one of the most robust, beautiful, and most importantly fun FPS experiences that can be had on the iPhone.” Touch Arcade

“The deathmatches are exciting, the controls are brilliant, and the graphics are excellent (they’re even optimized for iPhone 4)... Any way you slice it, if you like deathmatch-style first-person shooters, you’ll love Archetype.” – Slide To Play

“Keeps the 5-on-5 multiplayer action fast, frenzied, and remarkably
good” –GamesRadar

“Archetype lives up to the hype.” – TUAW
