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.

Touch sensitivity is very frustrating


The lanes themes are outstanding, as is the physical modeling and realism. My only complaint - in addition to the obviously fixed Daily Spin wheel - is how often I swipe the ball without it moving. Does anyone else have this problem?? It’s extremely frustrating (and a little dizzying) to “roll” the ball and not have it move. I tap slightly off center and there’s no response or connection with the ball. Same with the buttons; sometimes they work and sometimes they don’t.

I clean the screen and wash my hands, but that doesn’t help. If you use both index fingers and alternately tap the left and right sides of the lane, you can see how often the ball fails to respond. This is so frustrating every time i’m close to a 300 game and have to continually fight this flaw. Occasionally, it also causes the ball to jump unexpectedly or race down the lane far faster than you moved your finger.

Please correct this flaw on your otherwise excellent game!

I'm sorry to hear about the issues you're running into with the balls controls. You can find other options in the device's settings menu if you haven't tried them, such as device flick. You can also email us at and we can look into the issue for you.
Thank you,

I have found this particular game to be my best friend. Where else can you practice and still get paid (coupons) even if you loose!
Granted, there my be bugs in the program every once in awhile, just send the developer a note explaining your problem and they will correct it. I know, I am just about on a first name basis with them, I have sent them so many problems, and they have all been corrected.
Remember, it’s ONLY A GAME, enjoy it. Don’t expect to just jump into the game and be a big winner. It takes time and a few good balls. Wait until you see how tough it is when you start bowling against THE PROS!
I can’t imagine the amount of complex programming that went into this game, I’m sure that it was extraordinary.

One last thing, if you are one of those persons that’s just starting out playing MULTIPLAYER, DON’T FORFEIT in any of these games. WIN OR LOOSE, you will still earn coupons and it takes a bunch of coupons to purchase a ball. Save them up until you have enough to get the ball THAT YOU WANT and will enable you to bowl a better game and earn more coupons.
FYI, I don’t have any connections to anyone OR any thing related to this game. I’m just an amateur like you.
