“A slick and original zombie game” Modojo
“The Bowling Dead is an idea that gets a thumbs-up from me. Line ‘em up and knock ‘em down.” IGN
“The gameplay has such an incredible zen-like approach - swing away at the undead, or let them dance the night away; either way you get the last laugh” App

In a world overrun by an undead horde, one man stands in the way of the complete annihilation of the human race. One man…and his balls.

Customer Reviews


I didn't know what to think when I downloaded this game, but whatever Activision did was magic. I can't stop playing! The voice acting is great, the graphics are good and the gameplay is awesome. I really hope to see more of everything in future updates. Hats off to the dev team on this one. VERY fun!!!!!!

The bowling dead

I really love the idea but it keeps crashing on my ipad 2 only was able to play it for about two days and please fix the whole iCloud saving that I have not been able to load or save.

Crashing Ipod4

Crashes soo much I can barely get past a loading screen I've closed all other running apps too but I get that "low memory" message PLEASE FIX! If my iPod 4 can run infinity blade 2 it should be able to run this. Also apparently we should run this on a iPod 5 but that's only stated at the BOTTOM OF THE DESCRIPTION and why do we need a 5th gen now when we could run it just fine before?
