***** Best Bocce game out.

by wtb5275
By far the best Bocce title out there...AND it's FREE. It's also amazing that there is a contest to win money, something I've never seen before. The game play is really smooth which allows for strategy and skill to determine the outcome, not luck. A must-have.

***** Cool App

by Seantheboss
I don't usually play iPhone apps for longer than a few minutes. Still playing it and I downloaded it an hour ago. Too much fun!!!

***** Get Some!!

We've got more variations coming out. Some folks managed to score 3000.

What do you think about network play and tournaments.

It's the Number One APP in Italy after two days of sales there:



Also, an update that addresses the "Game Center Required" problem was submitted on the 28th. Meanwhile, if you are seeing this ... run in Airline mode. Sorry about that.

It's FIXED!

1.0.2 is available in the store NOW.

Game Center is no longer required (that was a bug) and the score board is easier to read.

Thanks to everyone for your patience.

Thanks for the update! I downloaded the game but immediately deleted it once it was forcing me to use Game Center. Now with the latest update I'll give it another try.

We appreciate that. This was a bug that we didn't see in testing. Sorry for that.

The new version also has a improved score board and generally runs better.

We are also running a $1000 contest in the app.
