What is Bowmasters - Multiplayer Game?

Bowmasters is an archery-based gaming-app that allows players to select from a variety of weapons and partake in activities such as shooting fruit, shooting birds, and dueling with their friends. It is free to download from iTunes and Google Play and requires users to periodically watch advertisements in lieu of paying for a membership, but there is the option of in-app purchases.


After downloading the app, users are prompted to either continue with the free version or pay to upgrade to the premium account.


If an ad appears, users simply have to watch it for several seconds and can then click on the “X” to return to their game.


When using the free account, users are randomly assigned a character from a selection of over 60 avatars, including Robinhood and a shark. Additionally, users can select their preferred weapon, with most being variations of bows and arrows.


Rather than playing against a random computer-generated opponent, members have the choice of dueling against their friends who are also users of the app.


Users can control the power and angle of their weapon, with the overall goal being to shoot their target or opponent. Players alternate between shooting their weapons at each other.


When a player successfully shoots their opponent, a video of the opponent dying and covered in cartoon blood appears.


In-app purchases range from $0.99 to $99.99 per item and allow users to unlock new characters, purchase more coins, and remove ads.


The app generally receives positive reviews, but some users have complained about the number of ads that appear in the free version.  

Is Bowmasters - Multiplayer Game safe for my kids?

Due to the weapons portrayed in Bowmasters, as well as the violent objective of trying to kill your opponent, parents should be cautious when allowing younger children to use the app. 

Similar to Army Men Strike, Bowmasters adopts a child-like portrayal of weapons and violence. The avatars contain few similarities to real humans, and the use of blood and death is simplistic and cartoonish.

While iTunes rates the app as being suitable for kids over the age of 12, the game’s violent themes are more appropriate for mature teenagers. If your child is between the ages of 12 and 14, you may want to supervise them while they use the app.

If you have any doubts, make sure to monitor your child’s use of the app and discuss with them the difference between violence in video games and real life.

It is important to note that if parents do not want their child to make in-app purchases, they can disable the in-app purchase option in the device’s settings. If you do let your child make purchases, set expectations for what budget they will follow.

Finally, parents should know that the app does not track the user’s location or allow users to chat with other players.
