Bowman was the No.2 app on the app store when it was first released. Now it is available in HD, bigger and better on the iPad.
Playing on the iPad is a lot of fun and highly addictive.
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 iPad 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 iPad. It really is highly addictive.

improvements needed but overall A+
i understand that this is pretty much exactly like the game on the computer and i love that it has retained that aspect of being original but at the same time I feel my ipad is being robbed. I would suggest if your going to sell it put in a quality feature so that players who like the old style blood ballons can enjoy it and those who want to use the ipad to its full potential can also do so.
ok but needs work
It's a fun idea, but you need a contrasting color for the angle and power displays, because you can't see them in some circumstances. The other issue is the game should show the angle and power of your last shot, so you can more accurately gauge your followup shots. Also a nice feature to have would be after each shot to show a mini view of the whole map with small representations for each bowmans location
Everyone complaining about the blood looking bad and bad graphics, do you not get that this game was originally on computer with this exact layout? Wow, research before you post ridiculous opinions about things you don't know about. It's awesome. Very simple, yet addicting. Great job!
