Bowmasters is one of those games you cannot stop playing. This game is made by Playgendary Games and it is pretty close to perfect! The goal here is to defeat your opponent in a duel, one on one, using your bow and arrow. The tricky part is to calculate the angle and power needed to hit your opponent on a specific distance each time.

It is not just the game mechanics that make this game so great, the idea behind this is not new. It has been used in various different games in the past. However this execution is nearly perfect. Everything from the soundtrack, graphics, controls, character reactions is tied together flawlessly. This game just works as a complete package. Once I started playing, I had to go nitpicking to find flaws. Sure it may not be perfect, but the experience you have each time you play is consistent. You start off with a short tutorial on how to shoot your bow and hit your opponent with your arrow. The game controls are very simple, touch the screen and move your finger up or down to set the angle, and then move it left or right to set the power. The rest is pretty much trial and error until you hit your opponent. The goal of course is to drain your opponents life bar in order to win. The great part is that once you kill your opponent, you get a finish him shot (remember Mortal Kombat?). That element makes me want to always win, as it offers a fatality sequence that is really satisfying.
