- Game control:
Bowmaster Prelude is an action game. The two objectives of the game are to either eliminate all enemy troops or capture the enemy flag. Each level there are a set amount of enemy troops. If you manage to destroy all of them before they capture you flag then you are victorious. If you have purchased certain troop upgrades such as mounted units, foot soldiers, or the bigger foot soldiers, then these units can attempt to capture the enemy flag. Your allies will automatically try to take the flag and bring it back to your castle. In order to win this way you must have both your flag and your enemy flag at your base. If you do this then you win the round even if there are more enemies left to fight.
