Game Impressions

This game is great and well worth the price. Finally a legitimate bowling game on the App Store. Physics are great, graphics are good to go, and with future updates planned it's well worth the price.

By the way, any changes in the final version?
You had early access its the same the next version should take a week apple willing with more levels.

Umm.....where is the shadow that the ball should create?

Looks like the ball is floating down the lane


This is something so basic and fundamental and the hardware is more than capable of shadows, so why can't the developer see this???


There are tons of bowing games on the App Store and most get it right.

Shame this doesn't look a little better, I was thinking about getting it before

No kidding, the animation of the ball traveling down the lane looks like something out of the alpha version of the game. Too bad, I was gonna pick this one up.

Shadows aside (I'm sure the devs will be able to resolve this in an update), has anyone tried this with AirPlay? I'm guessing AirPlay is more suitable for iPhone users rather than iPad users for this game? I can just see me accidentally flinging my iPad into the fireplace...

Nothing special. Quite boring really. They could have made it so much more and included AI opponents and leagues. As it is it's just like every other bowling sim out there.

One thing I hated was when I failed a level a window popped up offering 2 more extra shots for $1.29

I might delete this as it's no fun without some sort of league. Not recommended. Basically a waste of money with iap to progress.

Waste of money

This is one of the worst bowling games available in the App Store. The pin physics are far from realistic, there is no way to turn off the incredibly annoying and repetitive musical soundtrack, there is only one bowling alley offered for the purchase price, there is no Game Center connectivity or even tracking of ones high score, no AI opponents to bowl against, no way to disable the frequent instant replays and simply no fun. The developer has a nerve charging $2.99 for this inferior game.

Game Impressions

Got a code and I would like to thank the Devs, here are my impressions...

I am not an avid bowler, haven't bowled for over 20 years, the physics (IMHO) are high quality and the game itself is fun! Focusing on gameplay, not your traditional 10 frame bowling game. A new twist to bowling, add the puzzle aspects, great concept and implementation. I do enjoy the challenge and gameplay, it's not your "run of the mill" bowling game, although it would be nice to play a normal game.

Airplay, its not going to replace your Wii, but pretty darn close. The only issue is sound, not sure if I hooked it up right, but no sound on my TV. Use your phone (point and tilt) in the side of the lane you want, then "tap". Go through your swing while pressing and holding your phone (do not let go) and swing away. BE CAREFUL and DO NOT destroy your TV or phone, lol.

Amid all the concerns of animation, I can see what others are saying, maybe tweak the ball animation, it does look a little weird.

Great job and thank you for making me a part of this gem, call me addicted, lol.

All in all I would have invested in the $2.99 price tag, just because the difference and puzzle element the game offers. A few tweaks here and there and this could have massive potential.
