syncing......

EDIT : Seems pretty good, very bowman like. It has the options from the first bowman game, player VS player, player VS iPhone, Practice, If you need your fix of bowman on the go, buy this.
You stand at one side, and the computer/other player stands at the other, controls are the same as bowman, you place your finger on the screen, and drag backwards to control the shot. You take it in turns until someone loses.
Graphics are nice, and gameplay is simple but fun, worth 0.59 i guess.

The game is OK.

Simple but nice graphics.

No music but some sounds.

No statistics (like winnings/losses). No ranking. No high score. No achievements. Just the game. Nothing else.

Game background does not change.

I thought initially wind strength and direction would be there to add a bit of a challenge, including small variations during the same game. But the shot conditions does not change unless for the distance between players.

The control is easy. You draw a line in the desired angle and strength. Angle is show in the start up point of the line. Strength is displayed at the end of the line but the finger mostly hides this information. Not good at all.

In resume, it's a nice pick up and play and forget what you've done since it does not have statistics. It's a simple game but even the control was not properly implemented.

If you don't have much money I'd say save it for iShoot.
