I have actually finished the Bow and Arrow game before but my version works in Windows, not DOS. I received the full, unabridged version V1.0 from John Di Troia, 5 Mt. Pleasant Street, Saugur, Ma 01906. Price $12.00. I have lost my disc and plan to reorder from him. I did not have any problem before in receiving my order from him after he received my payment. It is really a fun game - especially the full version. It's a real challenge to get to the final level. Enjoy

To Shoot the Treemen: End the previous level with your archer at the upper 1/3 of the screen.

The goal is to shoot the arrow through the flame so that a flaming arrow hits the tree and burns up the tree. You can align your arrows exactly with the apples so that you shoot the apple and wait for the flame to come to the tree you are in alignment with. Then, shoot 2 arrows, one for the apple and one for the tree and hope you get a flaming arrow to hit the tree.

Or better, shoot the arrow slightly above the apple line, catching the flame, alighting the arrow and shooting the tree at its top, just above its apple-throwing plane.

To do this, end the previous level with your archer in the upper 1/3 of the screen, then wait for the flame and shoot the tree that is 2nd from the top. Move up above the top apple and shoot the top tree through the flame. Quickly move down slightly to align your archer with the top tree's apple so you can shoot it and not get hit. Now, both top 2 trees are gone. When all their apples are gone, and the flame is approaching the 3rd tree, drop down in between apples and shoot, catching the flame above the apple line, then move quickly back up into the blank space. Wait for all 3rd tree's apples to be gone, then, when the flame is approaching, drop down in between apples and shoot, catching the flame with your arrow, again above the apple line so that the flaming arrow hits the tree at its top.

Continue until all the trees are gone except the last. Hover just above the apples of the last tree and wait until the flame disappears off the top of the screen. Then, drop down between the apples and fire 2 arrows, then very quickly move back up above the tree. You should get the last tree.


Do you know where I can get the complete version of this game? I have the abridged version that came in a shareware package.

It's got nothing to do with finishing in the upper 1/3 of the screen you just have to kill all those black birds


Gamer I played the win version and there you kept skying until the yeti got to you(wich is after 4 or 5 meters)

The latest version of this game, v1.1, can be downloaded from here:

v1.1 lists his address as:


If you want the unabridged version it might be a good idea to write him a letter to check if he still lives there before sending money.

Sorry to bump such an old thread but I recently searched out this game for Virtual PC and I've heard the rumor of killing all the black birds gives you flaming arrows and it sounded fake to me so I never actually tried it; and I've never seen a screenshot of the flaming arrow which I'll try to post but killing all the black birds DOES WORK and will continue your game

Here's a screenshot of one level after the treemen just to prove you can actually make it past the level:

[unfortunately the photo looks doctored but fuck it]
I posted two other levels after the Treenmen at the bottom of this post in tiny font so don't read it if you want to avoid the spoiler but it's just for proof that I have made it past

You pop the bubbles to let the faries free and if you hit a cloud, it turns grey and shoots lightning at you

Save the game before the Black Birds level and keep trying until you beat it! You will get a "Good Shot Bonus" and a flame on the tree level will run up the screen contiously and you shoot your arrow through the moving fire and the arrow will then hit the tree and it will burn up!

GOOD LUCK PEOPLE!

Read the text which appears before level 7 - Hope the message has reached Khanin or something like that. Another thing - you can also see a carrier pigeon fleeing from the bad birds. Your objective - Kill all the bad birds without letting even a single one pass. Mind you don't hit the pigeon. The pigeon must deliver it's message safely without getting killed by the bad birds. See what happens in level 9...

Thank You[/b]
