"Bowman" was created by Addicting Games in 2004. "Bowman" is a two-dimensional archery game where the objective is to kill the enemy archer with arrows. Two players can play the game by alternating turns on the same computer, or a single player can face a computer opponent.
In "Bowman," two archers take turns firing arrows at each other. The archers are both stationary and each archer stands outside of the other's line of vision. Players fire arrows by clicking and dragging the left mouse button. Numerical values for the angle and force of the shot are visible during aiming. The match ends when an archer has received sufficient damage.
