This version of Bowman is better than all previous versions.
If you wish to play the original game, simply turn off the Wind, Wall and Fatigue features within the game settings.
This latest version has it all. It has many options which you can turn on or off depending on how challenging you want it to be.
Bowman is a highly addictive classical game. Even if you've never heard of it before, play it just once and you'll be hooked.
The object of the game is to shoot arrows at your opponent and kill them before they kill you. It's a battle against your opponent to see who can accurately judge the angle and strength of the shot to make the arrow land on your opponents body.
A head shot inflicts the most damage while a shot in the chest takes second place. Everywhere else on the opponents body inflicts less damage.
To shoot your bow, simply drag your finger across the screen and you'll be presented with a trajectory plus angle and strength (power) information. Release your finger to release the bow.
You can play Bowman against the iPhone or against a friend.
To make it even more entertaining, we have also included a bird shooting game. You'll have to shoot as many birds as you can within 3 minutes and then let your friend try the same. Hopefully, you will have shot more birds than your friend.
Thousands and thousands of people play Bowman online every day and now you can enjoy a better version of it on the iPhone. It really is highly addictive.
**Lentrica Software has also released another simple yet highly addictive game - Escapa**

Ratings and Reviews
"Good" game that was "great"
I'm reviewing version 1.3, and I gave this three stars instead of the two from the previous version because the programmer listened to criticisms about the "force" option in the bird hunting feature. It's definitely great to have someone improve their product. My only two other complaints are, again, with bird hunting; this latest update "fixed" the "bug" which didn't allow for neck shots, but now you hit some birds when you have no business hitting them, and the animations look way off. Also, the scoring isn't right to me; in some games I could hit every bird but still not get 2200 points, and in others it amazes me that I've missed 2-5 birds and get 2600. There's not enough scoring richness to make a two-player game produce a result based on skill. Maybe something where you can set the number of birds and the difficulty?
Graphically, gameplay wise, and replay wise this is a good game. I feel it is superior to archers. My problem is that when I play the human vs. human part of the game, it seems like something is wrong with my bow. I set my angle, pull back to 100%, and let fly, only to be disappointed by the speed at which my arrow is flying. It seems like at 100% power that badboy should really zip, but instead it slowly floats across the screen and I sit there thinking man, I wish I could make my guy run. I could run across the screen, whack my opponent to death with the bow, and be halfway home before the arrow hits anywhere. (well it's not THAT slow) But regardless, that is the one thing archers has over this game when you pull back to 100% the arrow shoots fast. It does not really seem to be a problem in the bird hunting game, so ill just play that until you guys can correct the power issues, or make that something you can control in settings at least.
This game certainly has lots of potentials. When you play against the iPhone they should have levels. A game like this should have up to 20 levels. As you go up in levels, they should make it harder and harder to hit your opponent.
As far target practice, players should have the option to choose based on the size of their targets. As people get better and better they can choose smaller targets.
Overall, this is the next best addictive game to ishoot (that's as addictive as a gave has ever gotten).
