Midnight Bowling

Yet another app released by gameloft. Graphics don't seem any better than Flick Bowling though. I have Flick bowling at the moment, and i'm not really pleased with the spin system. however, having gotten it for 0.59p, i don't mind spending on another bowling app, providing it's good. Anyone tried it yet?

Ok well I have this game and its better than Flick Bowling for sure. The spin works better in this one. Plus it has a story mode that extends the game more than Flick. Its also has a party mode for multplayer

You can either have a touch control system or you can tilt the ipod / iphone to move the player, bowl the ball and add spin without touching the screen.

Its better for sure but its up to you if thats worth $5. I would say its not $5 better than Flick but its the best one out so far.

I am going to take Flick off my ipod as I only need 1 bowling game and this is the best so far.

How are the pin physics? Do they bang into each other properly? (I believe Flick Bowling had an issue here when in its earlier versions)

The pin physics is really important... I'd like to know about that too. Please?!

I just hope it's better than Midnight "kind of short" Pool career mode.

Anyway, let us know about your impressions as well as what you think about the pins physics.

I dont know how short the Story mode is but it seems the same as the Midnight pool story mode.

I would say the pin physics are realistic. It does need an update as you get a bit of slowdown now and then.

I wanna see a video of this one if it does have pin physics or not. But flick bowling in next update should have pin physics too. So might just wait to see how it holds up. This is a good thing though as it might prevent flick bowling from returning to it's $5 price point with this competition.
