  • Pretty fun game Jun 22, 2020

    By Bigwilly43729
    Its a fun game. Quick & easy to pick up, but it also has a learning curve, which makes for good replay value. Pros: Despite the micro transactions, you can progress just fine without spending money. As long as you have chips, you can keep playing. You don’t have to buy lives or anything crazy like that. If you want to spend money, some of the “deals” they offer are actually good value. Easy to play, but there are some things you’ll need to learn on your own; the game doesn’t spoonfeed you everything. You are rewarded for being good. Cons: There are too many balls and/or not enough variety between the classes of balls. Also, since you don’t know the future potential of the balls, you’ll end up upgrading most of them, which is totally not needed. You are at the mercy of the game on upgrading the balls. You can’t just collect chips or gold & do it. This is probably for gameplay balance, but then there isn’t a major difference in the rare balls to reward your patience. Not a pro or a con, but there are very clear patterns to bowling strikes on most pin setups. Once you figure them out, you’ll bowl much higher scores more consistently.

    Fun game but pay attention to your funds, i squandered mine trying to practice and now I have no funds and I can't even play the new lanes because u don't have the funds. And if by some chance u win enough money on the lower lane to play the higher lane you better win cause it will be a long time before you'll get there again. That is of course unless you want to get the credit card ready. All and all not worth the effort. Total cash grab!!!

    EDIT: As promised, I upgraded from 4 stars to 5! They finally made it so you can play with your friends!! Honestly, I had gradually stopped playing the last few months, but now I'm back to everyday. I really like the game, but I hate that I can't choose my opponent so that I can bowl against my friend. If that's added....5 stars. UPDATE: Changed from 3 stars to 4 because I think it's pretty cool that the dev's care enough to respond to reviews. Thank you!

    A really great game. Very pleasant to the eye, great sounds and overall rewarding. The only downside are the cases - it takes way too long to open them and if you have a lucky streak, it might might take you just 10 mins to fill up all 4 slots and then you need to wait at least 4 hours to open - bit of a shame you can enjoy fully the game only every 4+ hours and even then it's only 1 slot... that could do serious re-thinking before people start leaving...

  • Great game! Jul 20, 2020

    By LuvTim2
    I have played other bowling games, this is the one I have actually stayed playing. I love it. Yes, it does get harder as you level up, I wouldn’t want it any other way. Timing is everything when you throw the ball. Rarely can you throw the same ball exactly as you had previously. That would be boring anyway! Don’t forget to pay attention to the hints given...like precise balls are only meant for knocking down a few pins, etc. Just waiting for the new lanes to open, can’t wait! Only suggestion would be to have CHAT available, so you could talk to the your opponent occasionally. Would. Love to say “great shot” to them sometime!

  • Controlled wins and losses and scoring Aug 10, 2020

    By Rrdock79
    This game is the same as all the rest. Wouldn’t it be a breath of fresh air if a developer would let the game evolve as you play instead of controlling who wins and who loses. Like in any game when you start to win and get a large number of trophies the game controller decides you’re just not a good player anymore so it stops you from winning. Then you constantly lose, after perfecting your shots and leveling up on your balls. Then I’ve had several games where I kept track of score and knew I had won and they put me at a loss or had it end in a tie breaker, which I knew wasn’t right. I was playing one day and I did lousy and knew I had lost and it put me as a win...which wasn’t fair to the other player. He actually won and I knew he did..and I’m sure he also knew he won. It gets frustrating that every game I’ve played is like this. I play a few golf games and they are the exact same way. Sure would be nice if you could actually win on your skills and not when the developers and controllers pick and choose for you to. I think they are probably on an algorithm like everything else. I may end up deleting. It’s a shame because it is a fun game but it quits becoming fun anymore when they determine the wins and losses.

    Was fun until latest update. The timer on the season pass rewards is annoying. Daily Challenges: Not enough rotation with the allies. I do really well on the first two rounds of the daily challenge and then all of the sudden the pins act different in round three which causes you to spend gold. Regular play: You can play the same pin set with numerous matches in a row. It is almost like if you don't win the match, they make you play the same set up repeatedly. The game keeps disconnecting too.

  • My Review disappeared Aug 12, 2020

    By Her_Hiness
    The game went from being good to garbage. They put a lock/timer on the rewards board. Not only did they put a lock on it, they implemented the lock after they took our money and after we had already started moving up the rewards ladder. Where is the logic in that? So, I had a lock/timer on my rewards board where I couldn’t receive anything for a week. Now I’m waiting 24hrs I think for each add’l level, regardless of what lvl I have already achieved. Why bother playing when you aren’t reaping any of the benefits? I’ll be back next week when the lvls are unlocked to collect the suitcases that I paid for but can’t receive. I may be done with the game, not sure. But what I do know is that I’m done spending. It was fun while it lasted but the money grab of 40 gold bars to accelerate each lvl is a beyond me. Greedy developers. Also the game is rigged, I tend to end games early if I know I’m losing because I’m now all of a sudden losing with lvl 11-12 balls, but now when I cancel games the player that hasn’t even gone yet already has points on the board in frames that they haven’t bowled. How do they already have points if they haven’t bowled yet? How? Because it’s rigged.

  • Season Pass Timer - Horrible Idea!! Aug 6, 2020

    By KSgracie18
    I never write reviews, but you have forced my hand. I really loved this game up until the new season that added a timer. I went along with the $4.99 every 2 weeks to get extra prizes for the seasons (which is already high at $130 per year to play a game), but now you also want us to spend 40 gold coins for each level?? That’s 800 gold per season on top of the $4.99!! What difference does it matter if one person gets through the season in 3 days and one gets through it in 2 weeks? We all pay the same amount of money for the prizes. Allow us to go at our own pace. And why, as a company, would you want to control AND SLOW DOWN a users progress through the game? One person’s schedule may allow them to play a lot on a Wednesday and another on a Saturday, but you are arbitrarily deciding that weekdays we can only go one level and weekends you allow 2. I will not pay the gold coins to go to the next level, so you are tying my hands on how far I progress and have really taken the joy out of playing the game for me. I really hope you will read all these bad reviews and reconsider applying the timer next season.

    I found after this last update it is much harder to win. I know when you hit the steamboat lanes it used to say level 10 ball suggested. Now, I can bowl against someone using a level 8 ball and lose? Please don't tell me that it's the way I'm playing, because I can throw 2 perfect games in a row, then all of a sudden not be able to hit a strike if my life depended on it. The mechanics do change and anyone who has played the game long enough knows it.

    I'm starting to have connection problems in the game menu and during matches. It's unfair that I have to forfeit the match cos the game keeps trying to reconnect. I haven't had any problems with that for months, until now. But if it is my modem that's the problem than that's ok. But my main concern is that I don't think the player should be forced to forfeit the match cos of a connection problem. Especially if the problem is on your end. If there is a way to change that so the game doesn't forfeit cos of a connection problem, that would be awesome. I like this game. It is fun and relaxing most of the time. And I love the bowling ball graphic designs. They're awesome. Other than the forfeit connection problem this game is great. (Quick thought) maybe add a bit more time for turns. 20 seconds just isn't enough sometimes. 30 seconds at the most, would be enough. But that isn't as big a concern as much as the forfeit connection problem. Thanks for the games!

    Finally able to "bowl with friends" which was in the description but unavailable until this week. Glad this finally made it in the last update. Having that feature advertised in the first sentence and not having it in the game was confusing and dishonest but now I can review your game honestly as well and it's a lot of fun. Give my thanks to the devs.

  • Almost Perfect (READ BEFORE YOU PLAY) Mar 14, 2020

    By JLeeSterba
    This is one of the better bowling games in the App Store without question. There’s one improvement that should be made though that would make this my favorite bowling game, And that would be to separate the classic bowling pin set up from all the wacky ones. I easily have the most fun when the game selects the standard pin set up, And the wacky ones are fine too BUT they should be separated as it creates an entirely different bowling experience that can be off-putting to many if not most players who enjoy bowling games. If this change is ever implemented I will gladly give this game 5 stars but until then, 4 stars is a fair score as there’s other bowling games that provide a better bowling simulation.

    Was a great game but the last update is frustrating. Having to wait 24 hrs for your next reward is stupid. I've unlocked all the tockens but have to wait a week to get the rewards. Rubbish idea. Also, I have been waiting a long long time for some new lanes. I've been on steampunk for ages. It's starting to get boring.

  • New Alley Jul 26, 2020

    By lilone0926
    My husband and I began playing this game together, with Covid-19 this was the next best thing we had as oppose to our usual going to actually go bowling. We love this game there are a few suggestions that I believe would make this game even more fun! -The friends you send chips too, you should also be able to challenge them if you would like, I would love to put my skills against my husbands!! -A chat option for when you are in game, I would like to be able to tell someone “that was awesome” or “awesome pickup.” -To me this one is VERY MUCH NEEDED, A NEW ALLEY/LANE, I have completed all lanes, and I find it hard to keep playing. Meanwhile you have those that have leveled and topped out their balls to 13 so by the time (if ever) a new lane comes out, you will those with very unfair advantages of having much higher level balls! -A way to be able to level up ball’s evenly, I have been working on my inferno (one of my favs) forever now and can NOT get it to level 10 bc I never get cards for it, WHY NOT?!?!

    Please add a function of "sudden death" to the game. Just rolled with another player to a perfect tie, but no tie breaker was provided, no props to either player. Also, how about a small menu of in-game communication, family friendly of course; look at Golf Clash for inspiration. Emojis and selectable text for friendly repartee? Otherwise, very enjoyable!

    Generally Enjoyable. Plan on having to pay. They continue to make choices that attempt to force you into paying. Generally this is less than other games but they started putting in time gates to claim rewards which I assume go away if you pay. But it just means now you earn things you cannot claim for 24 hours. Or having to spend another currency to speed up. This is dumb and predatory. I hope they reconsider.

  • Good but could be better with a few minor adjustments Mar 18, 2020

    By B. Tate
    I like the game but I think they need to make some small changes. Add a pin count on screen during the actual bowling so I know how many I have vs the opponent. Ability to dismiss upgrade options notifications for bowling balls. There are some I don’t plan on using and I don’t want to waste chips on upgrading them just get rid of the notification icon. Add ability to sell a bowling ball for some chips. Add the ability to play completely a free bowling lane. You won’t win anything but you won’t lose chips either. Add the ability for 2 player pass and play. So I can play with a friend who’s with me. Add ability to play separate normal pin layout vs wacky pins. Add these things and definitely see myself re-reviewing the game with a better score.

  • You can make a strike with your eyes closed. Mar 20, 2020

    By frostenion
    Don’t get me wrong this is one of the better bowling games in the App Store. It can get addicting and it is also a lot of fun. But it gets extremely tiring and frustrating. It requieres no effort to make a strike. all you need is maybe lvl 3 power ball if that and your essentially guaranteed. There is no point of hooking a ball or using bounce ball. Just power it out. It will hit, create a little shockwave and the pins will look like an earthquake hit them. You do have to move ball like an inch to the left or to the right so that it is pointing the the pocket but that about it. It pisses me off when I see a guy with no effort or flair just get perfect games just by throwing a ball down the middle nothing else. Please fix this! ITS KILLING THIS GAME.

  • Game is great, BUT.... Mar 14, 2020

    By PlanetDC
    I’ve been loving the game since I started playing. No problems at first. Now, when I finish a game it won’t show me the results etc. if I close the game and come back yes, I still receive my chips and all but it’s really frustrating having to do this. Also today I’ve had to reconnect to the server multiple times. I have full service AND full 5G WiFi so I don’t feel like it’s a problem on my end. Hopefully these issues will get resolved. I really want to spend money in the game but don’t feel like it’s worth it as this time until issues are fixed. Thanks for listening, and when these issues are resolved I will be sure to leave 5 stars!

  • Is the Game Somewhat Predetermined? Jun 7, 2020

    By Gdlvn20
    Let me start by saying that I have really enjoyed this game for the past six or so months. And I have read comments about the game “changing” (and not in a good way) for those who seem to be winning quite often. At one point, I was doing pretty well, but “fell on hard times” going from almost 500k coins to less than 10,000 in a matter of about 6-7 games. And it wasn’t that I changed my strategy, used different balls, added/subtracted spin, etc. Somehow, the pocket got tighter for me compared to my “opponent”. Regardless, today as I played, I was experiencing the “tight pocket syndrome” again while my opponent was not. Immediately after my 3rd frame (I went first) I forfeited the game and the associated prize coins/trophies. However, I actually read the screen and it had a final score for both me AND my opponent. If I JUST forfeited the game before my opponent finished throwing his final balls, how is it possible that the app “knew” what his final score would be? First time that I noticed this and it’s causing me to question the authenticity of the game.

  • Inconsistent game play Apr 26, 2020

    By Meeeeee3269
    I’ve been playing a lot for a while now and progressed quickly. Once you climb up the ranks and get to a certain point, it seems the game chooses you to lose. If you make it to the advanced leagues you find that consistent game play does not equal consistent results. I made it to advanced 2 league and since that day I have not beaten anyone in stage 5 in 6 days and my highest stage available is 8. The pin action is over-the-top ridiculously fake which (I get it) probably just to get people to giggle, but when you lose everything when all the pins except 1 is flying all over the screen at crazy speeds, you’ll see what I mean. Ties happen and there are no tie-breakers which is real but in the case where you only play 3 frames there should be something. It really seems like they will not let you progress beyond a certain point without making purchases, which I know many game apps do. You cannot communicate with your opponents. Other than that it’s an ok game but consistent play should yield consistent results.

  • As Many Have Said, You Will Lose as the Game Progresses Jun 16, 2020

    By donttasemebro#
    As Many Have Said, You Will Lose as the Game Progresses. This game was fun for awhile, but as you get up in the levels you won’t be able to beat opponents because they have more powerful bowling balls. No matter how perfectly you throw, it will leave you with left over pins! Your opponent begins to throw more and more strikes and it’s impossible to win. You can say everyone has the same chances as much as you want, but it’s just not true. I’ve played free for a couple weeks, but sadly I’ll be deleting this game. It’s no longer fun seeing how slanted the odds are against you. Update: Read some of the responses from the developers! Pure arrogance! Argumentative. It’s not a coincidence that so many people says the game isn’t fair. Be proactive and make changes. After all, that’s what reviews are about. I’ve already deleted the game, but the more you argue with your consumers, the less people will want to play your game!!! More and more excuses from the Developers...Very, very sad...🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

  • You will lose over time Jun 8, 2020

    By gg504
    The people on here that are talking about losing over time are NOT LYING! Once you get yo a higher level, the game starts beating you and you lose basically everything. The only way to keep going it to make purchases and then grind it out starting all over again. There’s also a Reddit group where people are talking about this. Also, leveling up balls takes FOREVER! You can open cases all day every day and you only get cards for balls you will never use. Why level those up when you just waste coins?!? Oh and all the talk about bots is totally true also. You are for sure not always playing another human. The game will also “lose connection” in the middle of important games causing you to lose as well. The game keeps going when this happens and you will lost your turn. Its fun in the beginning but then it gets old REALLY quick with the ridiculous losses. Example of this, you will use same position and angle having an 8/9 power balls and someone (or bot) can come in with level 4/5 power balls and get the strike and you will have pins standing which defeats the whole purpose of the game (leveling up). Its very frustrating

    The game now has the lowest rating I can give it because the developers are greedy and out of touch with their players. I get stupid responses from the warming group.it is a fun game, but after waiting forever for them to allow multiplayer now they're trying to charge you for it. they responded in the different ways to get tickets which I'm well aware of but you cannot play a friend more than once or twice for free in a day if lucky. Sad ... So much potential. Uninstalling. Will post replacement
