Ads aren't TOO bad
Ok, so I agree with the overuse of ads. There's one when you log in, close the options menu, one after every game, and one for the chest after each game. I don't really care, as most of these ads are SKIPPABLE! This is obviously and issue, because I NEVER write reviews, so lucky you, you get to see my rare opinion! The ad that pops up when you join isn't even a video ad. Most of the video ads you can skip after 5-10 secs (not the reward ads, though). The reward ads aren't usually horrible, typically a mini game ad (which is how I came to love this game) or an ad that lasts only half the time (maybe less). If you STILL don't want em? You can always just pay $3.99 to remove them and get 20k coins for epic characters in the process, like Dr. Sick (a.k.a. Rick from Rick & Morty), Fernando (Mario), and King Octopus (who is OP). Considering most characters you buy with coins or win out of the chest roulette (all of whom can be bought with a couple of in-apps), it's a good idea to watch those rewards, considering how long it can take to get a free chest. People need to stop complaining about a perfectly solvable, in 2 ways (I didn't make a purchase and I ain't complaining). Sadly, that what most of us do (because we're lazy, again, not me, considering how long this review took to make). That's all for now! BYEEEEEEE!
I love this game! This game is so amazing! Really fun and easy for kids twelve and under! Maybe not appropriate for four and under, because if you win, you see your opponents blood and guts, but great concept! One thing I like is that you get to choose your character and there are rarely ads. You don't have to pay for anything except if you want to get a character that has a VIP symbol on it, then you have to pay to get that character. You can watch videos or complete challenges to get characters, and you can open chests to get more coins or a new character. They have everyday gifts where you get a new character every time you check in! You can use your virtual coins to buy new characters, if you have enough coins. There are different options, you can play against the computer, play against someone random, practice shooting birds in the sky or shooting fruit off of someone's head. You can complete challenges and you can relate to the characters. One of the characters are named Hunger Girl and she resembles Katniss Everdeen from the Hunger Games. There is Donald D., which looks like Donald Trump. There is Penny, from Big Bang Theory. As you can see, Bowmasters is a really great game!
Pricing and Prizes are ABSURD
I used to play this game all the time when it first game out. It was fun and addictive enough. The coins you got when you won matches could be exchanged for small prizes or a life extension if you got beaten. Now, there are “gems” that are the only currency worth gaining anything on the game that are nearly impossible to amass. The Diamond Membership proving structure must have been thought up by an actually insane person with no concept of money at all. I have a HUGE amount of coins collected from playing the game that are essentially worthless now.
If the developers are reading this, allow the collected coins, which you’ve now made completely worthless in your game, even though they’re collected through loyal gameplay (which should be rewarded) to be exchanged for gems so players can upgrade characters and they mean something. Maybe 100 coins = one gem. Or some other reasonable radio. Otherwise, the “currency” you’re providing for playing the game is absolutely worthless, you’re bombarding players with CONSTANT ads when the game already has very limited lasting appeal, and people are just gonna delete it from their phones. I know I’m close to it. Your pricing structure is absolutely ridiculous. Get real.
I am obsessed with this! Though the ads are not to bad..
By that random review girl..
Ok first off let’s begin with this, so there are ads but this game IS awesome. So I have no complaints about anything at all though I just want to make this clear. I honestly don’t care much about the ads. Yes there are ads when you come in the game, after you do a round, and when you open a chest (I don’t know all the parts where there are ads I’m just saying the ones I know) but really they are not to bad. Usually there are ads that have little mini games which I LOVE. They also usually have video ads that are like half a minute and most of the time you can skip it. And the ones that are just pictures that stay for a couple a seconds and then you can skip it. Now I’m not a person who’s like “GET ONTO THE GAME” each time there is an ad. To those who play this game and ARE (well even if you are not) the ads are needed because the game is free plus there is and offer of 3.99 to get rid of ads which is decent. Now I’m gonna have to go now BAI BAI!
Disappointed and disgusted with iTunes and this game
I was playing another game this game popped up as an ad. As I was watching the ad it appeared to be uncle Sam throwing a United States flag attached to a sharpened flag pole. This struck the United States president through the head, graphically displaying spurts of blood and two "X" over his eyes insinuating death. The game then narrated by saying finish him off so our uncle Sam decided to throw another flag pole through the torso of our president, all of which which appeared to be Donald Trump. Not that I am a Donald Trump supporter whole heartedly. Irregardless of my position this is the United States president that deserves 100% of our respect as he has been elected to this office. The office should be respected, it disappoints me that iTunes would support and allow such a displays. Does this clearly outlines the political position of both of these games designer and iTunes. Should this have been someone throwing spikes through "President" Obama I'm sure the world, and numerous other multi initialed organizations would be up in arms and it would make CNN
It’s Fun but needs work
You know I’m kind of mad at this game and that’s because every single time you want to get out of something there’s an add! Every time if you go settings and hit the back button when your done an add! Adds are everywhere so if you don’t like them don’t play this game. Next is how much money you have to spend on this Diamond Membership the price for it is insane I mean literally the people who created the price for it is crazy. 7.99 a WEEK not month WEEK. Are you kidding me first you bombard with adds and then you come out with and “Oh let’s make super expensive for the super rich to buy we’ll make a killing in profit!” No you won’t it’s really stupid how much it costs to buy it I would get it if you changed to monthly but I mean maybe reduce it to like 0.99 a week because it’s a game. I know I don’t have to get it but you keep certain things blocked if you don’t. I would rate this game one star but I’m not because it’s super fun and a laugh to play. One more thing the chests that you collect at the end of something make it to where you can actually get characters and not coins all the time. Hope you read this and take it into consideration.
Some you can’t get
Okay this game is awesome and all and I know it’s a free game though, (this is not about the ads just to let you know, it’s the characters, okay? So let’s talk Jeremy, he is way better than every character in the game, has amazing accuracy and the power is insane, the problem is that he’s for money, like probably put it at like 50,000, 100,000, or 200,000 coins, some these are kids in the game, and like the diamond member ship is too much money, like honestly I had to finish the game cause I got every character that isn’t for money, and some bots are too op, not to mention, like when you finish the last tournament, you can’t open ur chest or super grift or daily gift cause of the vip packs, or something, it’s taking the spot, so can you like move the vip pack so it doesn’t take the chest, or the super gift or the daily reward, and cyber star, when u at least 100 power it like feels like 60 power, it’s like a close combat thing but this game is like a far combat game, I hope you can fix these things, but besides that it’s really good
This is advertisement software, not a game
The concept, although not original, makes for a pretty fun bit of gameplay for a few hours or so. However, I recommend you avoid this game and games like these like the plague due to the business practices of the companies who develop them.
If you assume in that a typical AI match in the game lasts about a minute, you will find that you will spend more time watching ads than actually playing this game. There is a guaranteed 30 sec ad after every match. There is another ad if you want to get the full reward for your match. There are banner ads during gameplay. There are even guaranteed 30s ads when you open and close the options menu.
In addition to this, which is unacceptable in and of itself, the game constantly tries to shove in app purchases in your face. Some characters, who only slightly change gameplay, cost up to $10.
I'm sorry that the developers had to put their name on a good game that was marred by the money grubbing pricks who own whatever company that produced this bloated mess. If you spend a single cent on this game, you're contributing to this kind of unacceptable behavior from developers.
It’s ok but what’s up w the crashing constantly
I’ve read a lot of reviews on here and they are pretty accurate. Adds annoy and the coins become pointless after a while. Getting new characters for free becomes much more painful unless you’re willing to pay about $4-$5 each and up to $10. My biggest issue is the crashing. While I’m in p2p mode there’s a 60%-70% chance the game will crash. Also I hate when I finally get matched with another opponent and they leave the game(Opponent has disconnected). I have to imagine the game crashed on them. This happens very consistently. I probably play the game about two hours a day on and off. Not sure if this happens to anyone else but I have to be connected to WiFi to get the most reliable p2p games. I tried p2p just using my cell data and it just hangs. Message pops up saying “cannot find players”. How is that possible? I have unlimited data. Not sure where the problem is there. If you’re patient like myself, you “may” like this game. Otherwise you’ve been warned.
Ads after everything.
Concept of the game is simple and fun. I'm not asking for completely wiping off all ads because I understand they want to push for more people to buy their add free option. However I am not a person that will pay to remove ads to play a repetitive and simple game. Again, the game itself is fun but lacks varying ranges to make finding angles easy. At 100% power the angles needed on targets only vary from 9-25 degrees. But I uninstalled this game because after any screen change, there is a 30 second ad. What's even worse is in online pvp, many people will leave the match as soon as they realize they have no chance to win. Now normally if you win and a opponent stays, you still have ads however I think if they removed ads after a player leaves early would help to not frustrate non-premium payers. Maybe its just a cash grab like every other game but the amount of ads outweighs the amount of time actually in games. I'm here to play games, not watch ads to generate money for someone.
