Bowmaster Winter Storm Codex Demo

This codex will be an in-game resource viewable from the main menu or while playing a mission.

Some of the content and graphics in this demo are still under development and the current version of the game may not reflect the same information in this demo.

Pro Tip: Click on the same unit button again to generate a new random unit skin (where applicable). Try this on the Orc Grunt unit to see the various facial expression he can make.

    Awesome, Jason. I like the codex so far. Also can you add more trees into some of the levels so it looks like your fighting a forest? Also Keep up the good work J :-)

    This is looking amazing! I love it. Will there be a key to tell you what each little bit means? Like the skull and shield in the bottom right, and perhaps show the percentages for the Strengths/weaknesses?

  6. Mercutio says:

    looks nice! Perhaps there should be some sort of ‘codex arrow’ you have to shoot to unlock the codex for that enemy. Or unlock certain amounts of information each time you kill that unit. Keep up the good work!

    Thumb up 1 Thumb down 2

    • SonOfBDEC says:

      I’ve seen that. Maybe it should just be the basic arrow. That way you can start unlocking things from the beginning. I hadn’t thought of that, But it would be a fair amount of extra work.

      Thumb up 0 Thumb down 0

    • Jason says:

      Yes, actually I was planning on this. I was thinking of having a “intel arrow” but then thought it best to maybe just use the basic arrow as the key to unlock the info.

      I’m also planning on having a one-time xp/gold award bonus and some sort of notification/achievement/popup/feedback/thingie to let you know you discovered a new unit. For bowmaster vets that have already been playing, this might seem silly as you’ve already seen some of these units before but this game is still in beta so there 😉

      • Juggernogin says:

        I like that idea a lot It would make more sense than knowing everything at once, possibly could it be where when you hit it with an arrow it shows its weakness or strength to that type of arrow, whatever said arrows element was.

      • sky0dragon says:

        nice , thats crazy , tink about it , its like an achieve thing , you must shot to that enemy to unlock info , that sounds crazy , like a hunt book

  7. Ethril says:

    I think the most logical way of unlocking enemy data would be to kill at least one of that enemy. Ally unit info would be unlocked when you unlock that unit.

    Anyway, this has already proven useful to me; I had NO IDEA that poison dragons were weak against fire!

  13. fox says:

    Hey Jason long time no write but I had a question. Currently I have started over on BMWS and have a new character with only archer units and some arrows purchased. This is not a problem on most levels but on Retrive the Artifacts mode my archers can’t pick up gems. As hard as I try I can’t seem to win this game type. Could it be posible to turn off Retive the Artifacts mode until you unlock a unit that can carry the gems?

    Thumb up 0 Thumb down 0

    • Jason says:

      Good question. You still can win, but only by denying the enemy from stealing the artifacts. So without a wolf or foot-soldiers (sword dudes) you won’t be able to win by collecting artifacts. Interesting idea to prevent such types of levels until you have the right type of unit. What I might do instead is just temporarily give you access to a simple unit that can get the gems if you do not have foot soldiers.

    @fox Archers can’t collect artifacts if you are rank 5 you start to get Gather The Artifacts some will have no units 2 Options= kill all enemies, try to protect the artifacts or 2 right down Quit = you go to main menu don’t worry you don’t lose anything

    So Jason I’ve been playing games At lostvectors since the beginning and have loved to see all of the updates of Bowmaster Winter Storm. I dont know if you care for my opinion but I thought I might suggest some things and see what people think. First is on the codex maybe have in a corner, a line of buttons showing the image of the ally or enemy according to its level. Also I don’t know if anyone has noticed this but even when you have your troops at their highest level I still seem to only get level 1 and 2 soldiers spawning, I was thinking that maybe like arrows it could have a sub upgrade menu one for damage, speed, health, and level or just level that upgrades the units. Please respond to this ridiculously long message to give me your thoughts. Thanks, Juggernogin

    When you’ve jugged a dragon with the slice arrow, there’s always this little blob of blood obscuring the end of their energy bar. I assume it’s a symbol to say they’re sliced (the fountains of blood are a give-away though). It makes it hard to tell if it’s worth shooting them or not. Same with the little star on the stun arrow. Also, the haunted castle is now silly hard to destroy at hgh levels without that blunt arrow. Excuse the griping, thanks for the game!

    • RedDevil says:

      If you read all updates… it said it only works on specific mobs, i know its hard to know but a tip, huge monsters like golem are weak to stun , its possible to have more stars on it if you have upgrade, Bleeding is kinda hard to know, but with dragons its good, but i prefer old style, Please let this advice help you a little…

    oh and the Super Duper Long Shot, which I’ve recently discovered, has a weedy little reward. It might even be less than a super long shot’s. Can’t it be something super duper? Like a firestorm or a giant bomb or a special allied unit that you can only get when you’ve been super duper?

      • SonOfBDEC says:

        He means a bonus “Good Shot” “Good Kill Shot” “Epic Super Long Tough Angle Chaser Kill Shot” (that one gives you 600 gold. o.o I head-shot a ninja jumping from the other side, I think) And so on. Just as there is a “Super Long Shot” there is the “Super Duper Long shot” (although I’ve never seen it). And it’s all done with a bonus to gold and exp. Giving you an extra ability would be a bit over powered, IMO.

    Further Suggestions for game: A big castle attack like castle vs castle, or you need to Protect a tree called The Tree of Life, Capture points, a gamble mode: like dices or cards (kinda off subject but its an idea) Goodday everyone ^^

  22. saard says:

    RedDevil, I was talking about the slice and stun arrows.

    When you use the slice arrow there’s a little blob of blood obscuring the end of the bad-guy’s energy bar, on the stun arrow, it’s a little star. Contrary to my first post, it happens on all bad-guys you can hit with said arrows, not just dragons.

    This makes it hard to judge what to shoot at them, especially if you’re conserving mana.

    I don’t think there’s any advice to be offered thanks, it’s just up to Jason if he changes it. It’s a minor bug, really and might not effect everyone. Depends how you play.

      Actually, the Skeleton minions aren’t in there. They have a different helmet that designates them as being on your side. And the enemy has a warlock too, and he just happens to look exactly like an evil warlock. I think he’s gonna change it later.

      If you shoot an ice wave arrow in front of the wizard, it’ll freeze him, then a bomb wave will shatter him. Two shots. Don’t miss with the ice arrow though.

  30. The Bloke says:

    I reckon it would be good to see themed levels in the final game which feature an unusually large proportion of a particular type or few types of enemy unit and/or a bias towards those units being high levels. You could be given the opportunity to decide if there are any skills you could really do with in order to win a battle against a massive number of high level mages, for example.

    I guess this idea would be most at home in the story mode presuming there will be one 😉

    Keep up the good work Jason, the game continues to entertain me when many other things have failed! :)

    Is is possible for a game mode where you get a random 10 or 20 arrows to use and see how far you get? As in when you make a new profile you chose the game mode you want for it.

    P.S. The codex is nice, I hope to see it finished. Maybe for Attributes you could say something about their personality (hungry for a skeleton, angry for a rock golem, e.t.c.)?

    Long time no update… that codex must be requiring some serious work!

    I think a survival mode would be awesome for BMWS; its a never ending onslaught that steadily becomes stronger (one map for the whole deal). You must start with only the basic arrow and purchase upgrades to hold of the enemy. These upgrades cost far less than in the main version of the game plus you rank up faster. You only get one set of buildings to defend (your base and a few optional towers) so if you slip up early on you’ll sure regret it later! The aim is, of course, to progress as far as you can before losing. There could be leaderboards and everything!

    If you’ve ever played Momentum Missile Mayhem (1, 2 or 3), you’ll know what kind of mode I’m talking about.

    new unit “wirler” fast atacks and long melee range but low life and low protection , useful for counter large nunbers of grunts…

    new unit “halberdier” have long melee range , its very poor , low life , low protection , but a good damage to deall units without put imself at risk.

    new spell “mind control” , wen shot to a enemy , it wil betray is own race and turn agains them until it dies , if bounce a enemy , it wil be like you dont shot nafing , if you shot to a allie , it wil get more stronger , like , more protection , more damage.

    new mode: in protection missions , randomly , a boss coms to finish the job , like the 1vs1 fights , but this time joing to his armie , you must kill im before he causes severe damage , it has more damage to be more real.

    new enemy siege unit: “trebuchet” the trebuchets have many diferences withs the catapult , catapult fire rocks to the sky , the trebuchet fires rocks right in front of your armie soldiers , but the catapult and trebuchet have flamable wood
    only to look a new type of catapult but more stronger.

    if want more ideas , only telling me .

    ps: raze 2 is taking much time but its a great shoter game , but , i like to give my contribute to help the creation of games (i personaly give ideas of phasers/lazers/tazers weapons , electrify your enemys)

  68. Hey,I got a question.Do the human foot soldiers ever appear with helmets?My level is 52,and no foot soldiers have helmets yet.Because,I play on advanced on practice and fight champion archers,and they seem to own my foot soldiers.
