Simple and Fun Candlepin Bowling.

Candleipin is a New England base sport. It is similar to 10 pin bowling, but uses a smaller ball and smaller pins.

This is just a base game mechanics. We will build up this game from this starting point. Thanks for playing :)

Will need some tweaking but a good first effort


I’ve been playing this game since it was a browser game on Facebook. Considering the alternatives (none), I’m glad this exists to represent Candlepin Bowling on iOS, but the app itself is going to need improvements.

The controls are very oversensitive and unwieldy in their current state. Positioning the ball before you throw it is haphazard, and if you don’t constantly hold your finger it will re-center itself which is annoying. There should be more control over horizontal positioning.

The other issue with the control is the strength of the ball release. If you do as much as slightly flick the ball vertically, it rockets off down the lane at warp speed. This makes aiming or fine adjustments to your throw nearly impossible. This leads to a lot of mis-throws.

Gameplay wise, it doesn’t appear that fouls are recognized when the ball hits pins after going into and out of the gutter.

In terms of the currency system, I mostly understand it but more explanation as to how it works could be helpful.

Overall, a good first step but refinements will need to be made.

Candlepin Bowling


After moving away from New England and missing this sport, this app is great to see and be able to still enjoy the game.
Knowing this app is a work in progress, I hope to see this app grow and become even better than it is.

Good New England style bowling.


This is a different style of bowling. You get 3 throws and the pins that fell stay on the lane during those 3 shots to help you knocked down the other pins. It's harder than regular 10 pin bowling. I play this when I went to New Hampshire. It's challenging. This app is good game play.
