Product Description
Float
Can you get a strike?
Float
Play standard 10-pin and keep score

Hungry for cash, and sick of hustlin' the same sad folks of the Vegas Strip casinos, these savvy swindlers have taken their game to the North Las Vegas bowling alleys looking for some easy strikes. It's time to play Vegas-style, physics-based finger bowling on your Android device.

10-pin Hustlin'

Lace your multi-colored loafers and shine your ball, this isn't just for recreation anymore. The ball will appear at the end of the lane when it's your turn. Pull the ball back and release it to throw the ball. Pull back further for a faster throw. To throw a curve ball, pull back and flick forward to the left or right--but mind the gutters.

For a curve ball with more precise aiming, move the ball all the way to the right or left. When the ball is spinning fast enough, move it back to the middle, pull back, and release. Alter the weight of the ball to your liking. Heavier balls don't go as fast but pack more of a punch when they hit.

Strikes and Spares

Like standard 10-pin score-keeping, you get two shots at knocking down all 10 pins. Earn a strike, and get another turn. Your total score is the same as how many pins you've knocked down. After each turn, you'll get to view your scorecard.

The sounds and graphics create the pleasant illusion that you're at a real bowling alley, with the exception of league-tees and beer bellies.

This is a very simple & challenging bowling game app where you can bowl in either in a Group, against the computer or Solo for practice. Just go to settings in your Menu. To change amount of players, tap New Game.
It has just a few basic options available such as: Sound Control of Music & Game, Ball Colors (blue, red, green or black), Ball Weight-12 to 16 lbs.

I'd played this game for about 45 minutes; using the different weighted bowling balls options available. Now, at first it had seemed the computer had the advange because, it won EVERY single play against in the first 10 rounds! However, as I'd continued to practice & experiment with weight of the bowling balls, strategically practicing how far back & what side to toss the ball, my scores began to improve some. However, I STILL could not win a single frame! I'm not talking about the entire game either. I'm mean just one FRAME. If I bowled a 7, the computer would bowl a 9. If I got a Strike...of course..so did the computer! It just "seemed" obvious.

So, I am still unable to confidently say as to whether the computer is set to beat the player or not. I would have to give the app much more game play in order to determine this for sure. (To learn how to move your ball properly, tap on the upper left hand corner of your screen. For menu options,then settings, then tap Help. If you own a K-Fire, just tap your Menu at the bottom of the screen)

I did find the game to be fun as any bowling app can & I would expect any SHOULD be. Strategically, it's going to be challenging to win against the computer on this one. That is only of course, IF one has the time & patience that I did to practice with it's limited options.

I have defiantly played A LOT BETTER bowling games than this one! Graphics... ehh ok, could be better. Concept ok. But putting ball to the side to get spin to it? No!!! That is not how you bowl!

1.0 out of 5 stars Incredibly easy March 6, 2012
Verified Purchase
The other reviewers just don't rralize that flicking isn't necessary to play. If you pull the ball back, you can just release it, and it'll be thrown. That being said, there is a spot on the floor that will give you a strike 100% of the time, since you can simply position the ball over it and let go. The spot is 2 or 3 pixels left of the line between the central diamond and the diamond to the right of the center diamond. Move your ball there, draw back to a spot that puts 1/2 ball between your ball and the furthest back you can pull. Release. You'll get a strike. It took me maybe 45 seconds to find the exact spot.

To fix this, the developer should require that a swiping action be made to toss the ball, since a swipe is a physical action that is difficult to reproduce 100% of the time.

4.0 out of 5 stars I think people need to clean their screens March 6, 2012
Verified Purchase
I got this game today and played it with the expectation that I was going to get my hind end handed to me on a plate. And I did...my first game. Second game I won as I figured out how to throw the ball - how easy or hard - curve or no curve etc. But what REALLY gave me the edge and allowed me to beat my opponent was when I cleaned my screen even while playing the game. I started out with 10 points my first 2 frames due to cleaning my screen but after that I was getting strikes and spares pretty consistently. So try cleaning your touch screen and then play the game. Unless you are just really horrible at the game you should notice an immediate improvement in your game play.

PS - to the developers - the one pose you have the girl in when she's got a hard roll coming makes her look like she has to go to the bathroom (the pose where her hands are crossed by her thigh) - you may want to fix that - or not as it doesn't affect gameplay other than me wanting to tell her to take a bathroom break :)

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun to play, glitches should be addressed. May 2, 2013
Verified Purchase
This is the most fun bowling game that I have played on a tablet. The graphics are pretty good, as is the sound.

The negatives are that the game has some technical glitches, which pop up, for me, about every ten games or so. It would be nice to see the developer release an update!
