TEN PIN BOWLING
One of the most popular bowling games in the world today. Score strikes, spares, and turkeys.
PICK UP SPARES
Practice challenging spares. Clear stages to unlock new balls.
ONE HUNDRED PINS
Knock down as many pins as you can in 5 throws at a rack of 100 pins!
Invented in 1880. Candlepin bowling offers a great challenge. Candlepins are thin skittles that bounce and spin unpredictably when struck. Pins aren't cleared between rounds allowing you to knock them into still upright pins.
FIVE PIN BOWLING
Invented in 1904 in Canada. In 5 pin, each pin is worth different point values. Spares are strategic attempts to hit the most valuable pins. A perfect game is 450 points!
NINE PIN (GERMAN BOWLING)
Invented in medieval Germany, 9 pin is what most later bowling games are based on. Nine pins are arranged in a diamond shape with a "kingpin" in the middle. Knocking all the pins over earns 9 points. Knocking all the pins over but the kingpin earns 12!
Invented in 1904 in New England. Duck pin uses the nearly the same rules as 10 pin, but allows 3 rounds to knock over all the pins. The ball and pins are smaller making precision very important to score well!
Iron pin is the same as normal bowling but one random pin is much heavier than the others. Careful consideration has to be made on how to knock over the heavy pin while also clearing the normal ones.
Bowling on a shuffleboard table! Knock over the pins with a weighted puck.
WEST COUNTY SKITTLES
Traditional skittles game that has been played in British pubs for centuries.
LONG ALLEY SKITTLES
Knock over pins by throwing a barrel-shaped 'cheese'! To score points, you first have to knock over the kingpin. It's tricky to master when the ball bounces unpredictably!

Ratings and Reviews
I'm playing this on an iPad2. The 3D panning is super smooth, and the reflective floors look realistically polished (in the literal sense.) I'm not sure if its the physics engine, the camera zoom, the stunning graphics, the sound effects or the combined result, but when I flick that ball, it feels almost real. I find myself willing the ball to hit the pins, with the same sense of anticipation as being in my local hall.
It has its flaws
Nice game to play, unfortunately it's got an annoying flaw. Mainly sometimes when the pin is halfway falling down it gets placed upright, it ruins many strikes that way. It would be nice to be able to scroll through the scorecard at the end of the game.
I love how there aren't menus always popping up in the way. A full game only takes a few minutes and the leaderboards are very competitive! Physics are great too. The pins behave like pins and not styrofoam cups.
