Treasure Punks

Five Archers’ Treasure Punks feels like a mini-game from The Price is Right. There’s not a lot to this title (and that’s not a slight; I believe that this is not meant to be a grand epic so much as it was created to be a fun diversion), but that doesn’t mean that you won’t keep coming back to this Android game of chance.

The premise of the game is to push your luck and hope that it pays off. You are a treasure hunter, rifling through a pile of loot that you have discovered. Each round you are presented with three items from the trove; you can choose to keep the treasure and end the round, or you can play on and take three more items (you can repeat this as much as you like). Treasure items are worth one point; the more you retrieve, the more points you get for the round – with the total point value being added to a running total for the game.

However, within the pile are also skulls – nab three of these (in a turn) and your turn ends (and all points you have collected for that round go the way of the dodo). Players alternate back and forth, with the first player to thirteen points being the winner of that game! Cute 8-bit style graphics and simple sound are entertaining and not taxing to your Android phone

Things didn’t end so well…

It’s a fun (and free) game of chance which is, as the description states, a great game to play when you only have a few minutes of time to play. Currently, you can play against the AI, or with up to three other people in local pass-and-play mode. The developer is currently working on an online multi-player mode. Check it out here or here.
