It's a fun time waster but not 100%. It's a fairly realistic looking bowling game but the controls are a little wonky. If there were a way to aim the ball better it would be five stars. Having no dots on the lane just the arrows makes it difficult to consistently throw the same hook. Perhaps adding a guideline would work as well. Having a way to turn off the annoying person yelling strike and spare each time but still leave the pin sound effects would be a welcome change as well.

Yeah, this is a good one. Nice work on the mechanics of the lane, balls, and pins. This game is a great example of how simplicity can be much better than a convoluted experience with ad watching, unnecessary screens to flip through, flashy effects, etc. The dev may be able to smooth out the graphics with some shading and anti-aliasing as the graphics do appear a little dated. Other than that, well done :)

Look and feel are excellent. It's no frills, and that is what real bowling is. One can experiment with how balls move down the alley using your finger as the guide, creating "english". The sounds are minimalist and off kilter, but for free, merely noting. Close to three hundred games and figured out how to consistently get perfect 300 scores, 12 strikes in a row. That doesn't make it any less fun, and will continue to play, experimenting with ball control. Highly recommend.
