App description: Built by one guy using the power of the Unreal 3D engine, Kingpin Lanes is the first game to offer the entire bowling alley experience, featuring:

~ A fully explorable environment, with findable and interactive objects, a functioning Pro Shop, and more.

~ Five fully voiced and animated characters, each with their own amusing personalities and objectives.

~ Five outrageous Challenge Lanes, letting you bowl against obstacles and challenges in a Junkyard, a Casino, a Rooftop Penthouse, a Cellar, and the Top Secret "Roswell Revisited"!

~ A fully interactive arcade with four playable Mini-Games!

~ Pro Shop upgrades, skills, mojo ball-handling, new balls, cheats and more!

Kingpin Lanes plays nice with your on-board music, letting you create your own soundtrack as you bash pins and embarrass your opponents.

With breathtakingly unparallelled 3D graphics, full immersion, stunning physics, and outrageous bowling challenges and environments, Kingpin Lanes is the ultimate mobile bowling experience!

And.. there goes my anticipation. When the actual bowling looks like the worst part of a bowling-themed game..

Will wait for Game Center achievements before buying this.

Holy cannolli, am I glad I read the reviews first before buying.

I was so looking forward to this as, I, too, like everyone else, thought that this was
the Holy Grail of an iPad bowling sim: it uses the Unreal3 engine!!!
But, alas, now I know the sad, sad truth ....

"Bought To You By The Makers If 'Dream:Scape' ", huh?
That shoulda been my tipoff right there -- the UE3 engine was wasted on that one, too.

Oh, well -- the waiting game continues ....

Shoot. I was hoping this would at least have the physics of Action Bowling - was excited to see a bowling game using the Unreal Engine.

Uh, but this certainly isn't what I was expecting.
