Product Description

A Polar Bear in an inner tube? Wait, he's BOWLING in the inner tube and there's a penguin with a towel?

PB has always loved Polar Bowling. When he was a kid, his dad built him a little alley and gave him an inner tube. Since then he's been launching himself down the lane trying to knock over anything that resembles a bowling pin. As PB grew older, he began thinking he could build a better mousetrap, er...bowling alley. What better place to build it than his own backyard? Building was hard work though! So, he forged a work order at his father's business, PB Industries, and had a polar bowling alley constructed FOR him in his own backyard.

So every afternoon, it's time to bowl.

And bowl he does.

Originally available for play on your PC, Mac, or even the Nintendo DS, Polar Bowler has been knocking down pins all over the world. We've brought him back and built him a whole new alley your smart phones and Kindles. Check out some highlights of the new lane as you bowl:

- A giant "Jumbotron" at the end of the lane
- A bigger better Bear Return for convenience
- A fountain and statue for....ambiance
- J the penguin who operates the pin machine and hands PB a towel when he needs it.

2.0 out of 5 stars "Could Have Been Fun".........."Keeps Freezing Up"........ September 16, 2014
Verified Purchase
It was a fun new way to bowl until it froze up several times on my Kindle HDX 7" and I had to shut it down..It also froze Samsung S4...The game has even more problems....Won't exit cleanly using the back key...You must use the home key button...Then what you find is that when you re-enter the game it is stuck in the same place you left off....Again causing you to go in and force close the app to reset it or you find the game frozen again...If you put it into two player mode the game won't allow you to go back into the one player mode...You spend your entire time going into your phone or kindle and force closing the game to reset it...

Although I didn't see any in app purchases but it does have code for Amazon IAP and has Mobile App Tracking...Mobile App Tracking is an analytic to measure the value of advertising partner....But there is no adds now so I don't know if the developers cleaned up the game now or what happened...

Permissions are:

Read access to device state
allows sending in app billing requests
Access information about Wi-Fi networks
Access vibration feature..

I deleted this game not worth the trouble..

1.0 out of 5 stars wild tangent stay clear. September 16, 2014
By wirewho

Wild tangent has a pretty horrible way of bait and switch and some really sneaky analytics and tracking. It's horrible on a pc. Even worse on phones and tablets.
After reviewing comments the truth is 95 percent are not what they appear. Don't get me wrong. The games are fun. It's the company's policy's and backdoor sneaky practices.
Read phone state.
Advise when phone has booted.
Write to external storage.

I get those yes. Sort of. Why the need to know when my phone boots. Hmmmm

Open network sockets.
Send text and sms messages in background mode.
Use camera and microphone.
Upload and store contact data.
Third parties analytics for data and traffic usage. Including browser history and known accounts as well as passwords used.

On pc it's just as bad.

Wild tangent is a company which appears to be possibly grabbing at straws by selling it's data mine to advertisers and the like.

Every time I hear the company name I gringe. Because it's kind of like a double headed bunny. While you are concentrating on the cute fuzzy bunny head the other bites you in the butt.

Just the words wild tangent should send you running for the hills.

Rewrite the game without all the sneaky little backdoor and it's a fun game. Install as is, well that's a no go.

2.0 out of 5 stars Only free for a short while... November 13, 2013

This game is a lot of fun...until it starts trying to force you to buy more frames. When you don't, it freezes up and won't work anymore. Guess you get what you pay for -- it was free!

1.0 out of 5 stars Watch Out November 6, 2013
By Linda S

It's boring.When I played it ads want to pop up and you pay to remove ads. Worse when I was unable to use wifi NONE of my apps wanted to work. I have always been able to play offline at work and suddenly I couldn't. I removed it and had no trouble.

2.0 out of 5 stars Fun game, but... November 12, 2013
Verified Purchase
This is a real fun game and it is so cute, too. However, after playing about five games it froze my Kindle Fire and I had to shut my Kindle down to get off the game. After that my Kindle Fire would not start up again and I had to do the 20 second hold on the start button thing to get my Kindle Fire working again. Now I am afraid to play the game for fear that it will freeze my Kindle Fire again.

1.0 out of 5 stars Wild tangent = wild spyware September 16, 2014
Verified Purchase
Wild Tangent embeds lots of spyware and malware into its products. I had a computer that took me over a week to get rid of all the personal data collecting that was installed. I will not give them a chance with my android phone.

I do not know what to do about this. once you have played the first 10 frames it freezes and won't let you do anything else. I closed out and tried to restart and sometimes it won't let you it takes you back to the frozen page. when it does let you restart at the beginning it does the same thing and after 10 plays it is stuck again! UGH!!

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing April 28, 2014
Verified Purchase
This game would be fun if it didn't constantly crash! It's rare that I actually get to complete an entire game without it crashing. Very disappointing.

Nice graphics, fun gameplay except that the controls do not respond consistently, pins that are directly run through (tracks on screen through the pin afterwards) do not fall.
