Yabusame(流鏑馬) is one of Japanese traditional military arts.
samurai who is riding a horse shots an arrow to hit targets.

Today, Yabusame event has been held actively in some areas around the nation as shrine ritual.
the game(YABUSAME horseback archery) has built on the Yabusame rules and my original rules.

you should try to get higher score while clearing bars(bamboo hurdle).
the goal doesn't exist. you should keep running on the same track while accelerating repeatedly.
Let's try to challenge your own limits!

- the game is over if the player has completely been pushed out of screen.
- the player can not shot a next bow during jumping.
- the player can not shot a next bow unless a current bow on screen hit a target or vanish naturally.
- the score is sum of points of targets gained plus distance points plus points of number of laps.

in this game, device orientation is always set to LANDSCAPE RIGHT.
if you will tilt the device clockwise, the player will move forward.
if you will tilt the device counterclockwise, the player will move retreat.
the amount of movement also increases as the slope of the device is large.

Touch somewhere on the screen with your finger.
and then Swipe down with the finger.
and then Release the finger from the screen.
a arrow will fly far as you swipe large

Just tap your finger.
