Shooting bow sideways?

will it still work?

It’s not generally recommended. Some cultures have taught this method for aiming, but most of these cultures are long extinct.

The problem with firing a bow sideways is clearance. The bow, arrows, and rest should be tuned to be fired straight vertically, allowing for clearance of the fletching as the arrow leaves the rest. When you shift the bow sideways, all of this tuning will go out the window. Ideally, the dynamic spine of an arrow will be in line with the string, and when fired vertically, is in the plane of the vertical drop on the arrow (i.e. the arrow will flex straight up and down, lifting out of the rest and firing quite straight). When you shift the spine flexion into a horizontal plane, you take away the arrows ability to lift fron the rest. and the tail will be very likely to make excessive contact with the bow riser.

Beyond that, when fired vertically, the bow can be fired from a relaxed bow hand, with the draw hand pulled back to contact the face for a consistent hold from one shot to the next. When shooting sideways, your bow hand must stay rigid because the bow is now in an unnatural position, which introduces torque on the riser (which flips your arrows wherever they want to fly, rather than having a consistent release). Your draw hand will also be in an unnatural, and very unstable position, typically drawn to the middle of the chest, rather than to the face. This introduces a LOT of error, and takes away your ability to “eyeball” your shaft pointing towards your target. This hand position will also introduce a LOT of torque on the string. Your hand will need to be perfectly level palm upward, which is not a strong position for your hand, so you’ll be slightly twisting the string to hold back against the draw.

So yes, it can be done, no it won’t be as accurate as shooting the bow vertically.
