Review: Bowmaster HD iPad App

Challenging, engaging, fun. Feels like archery practice in Sherwood!

View on the App Store: Bowmaster HD - iOccam

Features of Bowmaster HD iPad App:

  • Practice hand-eye coordination on a touch screen.
  • Targets are wooden creatures (no virtual animals are harmed).
  • Visual development with highly targeted aiming.
  • Quick reflexes required.
  • Sense of 'getting better' at a skill you'll not likely be able to play - archery!

Bowmaster makes me feel like I'm part of the merry men of Sherwood, practicing on an archery field.  The game takes you through different terrains, opposing different (and better) opponents.  Scoring is rated on your accuracy and the difficulty of the shot.  Moving 'wooden animals' present targets, which 'run' across the landscape as if on wooden 'runners'.  Some are fast (like the fox), and some are not (like the deer), some in the foreground, some in the background, and all of them are moving!! 

It's fun AND challenging.  It's one of my favourites, and I am glad it's on my iPad. 

Overall, a wonderful touch-screen experience.  Great graphics in the virtual-world and excellent controls keeps me heading back for more.

This game has been on our iPads since it was released.  Awesome fun.

This is frustrating for LITTLE children as a high level of fine motor skill is required. Very little reading required.
