very good app

Broken Bridge

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.

New contest is flawed


I've been playing off and on for a year or two now, and for the most part I've liked the game well enough. They added a new piece of gameplay recently, a weekly contest, which finally gives us a means of earning golden pins through bowling (the point of the game) rather than getting them through the ad service (which doesn't always work). Unfortunately after the first week went fine, each ensuing week has bugged out and failed to actually give me the golden pins I've earned.

Further, booting up the app is about a 50-50 proposition. I've submitted several error reports and have heard nothing back, nor has the problem been resolved (ongoing for several months at this point).

I like the gameplay, but the bugs are crippling, and that's not even getting into sorry state of multiplayer...

One of my favorites


I’ve played through the ranks twice on different cell phones. When playing long periods, energy charging balls are your friend. Really, there are a wide variety of balls to earn you energy, level ups, or ticket cash. Two things that might make the game even better: A tourney with a 100k first place prize (takes awhile to make bank with 20k or under win prizes. Also: any chance for a 10k bonus for a 300 game? They do it on TV. Overall, it’s a solid game to download. The pins are cheap to buy if you want to move up quick, and they offer plenty of freebie pins for energy or boosters if you don’t want to pay.
