Very fun app

Been playing this app continually since 2014. I play every day every time on iPad since I have all the power bowling balls so running out of energy never a problem. When I first started playing game was a little annoying having to wait to recharge but over time saved up to get energy charging balls which eliminated waiting. When enough adds watched to save up to ultimate ball and after then never had to wait again . Never bought gold pins would just watch ads and win to earn, Love the added venues when they appear. Love the special balls, daily spins, weekend events, and other challenges. Only problems are Sometimes locks up after a game and have to restart. This occurs during certain times of year while other times never locks up and works flawlessly for weeks. Sometimes the sound goes away and have to reboot to get back. Sometimes to get spins the videos don’t play and get playback errors. All seem minor compared to the overall experience of the game. Tech support was fine when needed One time at beginning of 2018 the game lost all my settings (special balls, points, gold pins etc....) and I had a LOT of points gold pins and special balls that were all lost, and I was really bummed out. sent email to support which sent me special file to restore my stats and recovered all successfully. Thank god otherwise I would have probably stopped playing game altogether. Hope this game last for many more years as endless entertainment

Love/hate relationship with game

Been playing everyday for last six months. You need to to keep your spin streak alive or else need to pony up points to revive it. No biggie there. But a big issue I see is as move up in levels, the cost of playing a game grows too. So if you have 400 energy points showing it costs 250 points to play. If you have 1000 points if cost 800 points to play. So you never can play two games in a row without using pins to buy more energy. And I would never ever use real money to buy energy points . There is also times when the game slow and unresponsive. Not sure if it's my iPad, but many times the game will freeze up during a roll and before you know it the ball rolls not how you threw it. I have had many perfect games ruined by this lockup. You get into a rhythm on how you throw the ball and these annoying delay breaks that. On the plus side when the game is working as it should it's fun to play. Many, almost too many ball choices(of course very pricey to get the better balls). But controls are nice. Oil patterns do affect ball play as you move through the tourneys. Some special events require you be at a crazy high level to even be able to launch. I've been playing every day for six months and at level 33. Some balls and events require you to be at levels 75 ad above. Of course you can play real moneyto progress faster, but you know what they say about a fool and his money.

very good app

Still a good app but VERY frustrating when ads tie up the game and you have to shutdown your iPad and reboot in order to continue playing. Such a waste of the player’s time. The app still has the problem with some of the daily spins. Emails have not been answered. It is a shame because it is a very good game which they obviously put a lot of work into. Since the app is a couple of years old now, they probably want to put minimal resources into it now.

This is a very good and realistic app. Not perfect, but very good as long as you don’t mind investing some dollars into better bowling balls and energy. I think you will get frustrated waiting for the natural course of events to take place. The costs are reasonable but I think you should be prepared to spend some money. One thing that sticks in my craw is the number of times pins just spin around as well as spin around and never go any place. The natural odds are just not possible to calculate. Pins move, even if they do not help you. They travel, sometimes they hit other pins, sometimes they don’t. But overall it is a very good app that gives much enjoyment and brings back memories for many of us.
