This game looks sick. I can't believe this is the first bowling game I have seen with a windmill.

Looks pretty neat, too bad a good chunk of the tables seem to just rely on swiping straight at the correct time. Also not sure how how long the novelty would hold up without more/random levels/etc.

But... it's cross-platform multiplayer so when my gaming buddy gets his Nexus 7 we might give this a shot.

Thanks for the feedback! Try the levels on Expert, many levels there that rely on some serious curving skills. We tried to keep it easier for the amateur courses.

Cross-platform multiplayer definitely encouraged, the team on this one was primarily just an iPhone junky artist and an Android programmer.

How many levels are there?

Also, a verification: this is playable online without Facebook, yes?

There are currently 30 unique levels, and we're hard at work adding more to the game as we speak.

Yes, definitely playable online without Facebook, you just make an account from the login screen and you can find friends just by email.

One-player mode?

Is there a one-player mode that allows you to play against an AI opponent?

No, sorry. No AI but you can play through the campaigns with one player to try to get a good score.

There's also a strike streak mode for those who think they have perfected technique, it tracks how many strikes you can achieve *in a row* for individuals levels. You earn medals for achieving high scores including a golden turkey for three in a row. Not too tough in some levels and nearly impossible in others.
