Dungeon Rush

If cartoony skeletons and wizards, explosive TNT barrels, and firing arrows into them like shish kabobs is your idea of fun, try out Dungeon Rush. It’s a single player archery game that takes place in a dungeon with waves of undead skeletons ambushing you. Aim and launch specialty arrows (explosive, ice, and what looks to be poison) to stun and headshot these walking bones in armor and with weapons from invading.

Fitness Potential  

Archery games are great for building and toning the upper body muscles, the legs, and core. This archery game will most likely use the arms the most for distance shots, but once the waves get heavier, you’ll want to use room scale to your advantage. Once the skeletons start to outnumber you, your legs and core will be get activated by dodging and lunging.
