Based on the hit animated series from FX, ARCHER: DANGER PHONE is a narrative-driven idle game where you’re in charge of your own dysfunctional espionage agency.

Gameplay

Working as an idle sim game, you need to generate Kriegerrands and cash to get further! 

As someone who loves watching Archer, I was so excited to discover a new Archer game on the app store! But to my surprise, it’s very much an idle simulation game. It’s a shame because I had high expectations for how this game could’ve panned out…

Dr. Krieger wants to make a new cryptocurrency called Kriegerrands but the agency won’t help him along the way so he makes them into holograms. During this story, you will need to earn influencers in order to trade them in for Kriegerrands.

The game is pretty standard when it comes to an idle simulation game, however, there’s a mini-game where you’re able to play as Sterling and shoot any enemies. But that’s the only thing that differs from similar games.

Graphics

The graphics were almost identical to the shows!

Being a huge fan of Archer, I noticed straight away that the graphics were almost identical to the shows. It’s great to see that Eastside Games haven’t compromised the visuals we all know and love from Archer.

Music & Sounds

The music is very on-brand with Archer so I was happy about that. However, the cut scenes are completely mute which just seems lazy to me. It would’ve been nice to get the voice actors involved with the script!

Controls

Control by tapping!

The main control in Archer: Danger Phone is tapping. You tap to upgrade the rooms and tap to shoot. It’s a pretty simple concept!

The Verdict
