Review

Bowling is a game of accuracy, skill and perfection. Though the one and only goal is to pin down all the pins in minimum number of trials, as a beginner the game seems to be very difficult. The main difficulty is the heavy ball you have to lift and throw. And even if you manage to throw it on the track, what’s the guarantee that it’ll travel down to the pins? And even if it manages to complete its run to the pins, what’s the guarantee that it’ll pin down all of them? So there are so many factors related with a game and a good understanding of them takes time. So you must play the game as if you’re living it and a very good chance to do the same is if you keep it close to your heart all the time. So are you ready to live the game?

Your Smartphone is always close to you and we have a new app in the app store called PBA Bowling Challenge. The app has been developed by Concrete Software and is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad and requires iOS 5.0 or any later version of the OS. The app has also been optimized for iPhone 5.

When it comes to bowling, PBA Bowling Challenge has all the elements that one player will seek for in a game. There are three different modes i.e. career, quickplay and multiplayer. As we all know, quickplay is for a quick match while multiplayer is to play against random players or your friends. But the career mode is the best choice for a serious player where you start as an amateur and progress ahead to emerge out as a professional player. You get into different matches and at certain intervals; you get to challenge a master of the game. There are 23 such masters who are very difficult to defeat. So make sure you learn from your previous mistakes and not repeat them again.

Apart from the gameplay, there are many interesting game elements such as different balls including bomb, split, lightning, etc with same features as their name resembles. Also, developers have tried to keep it as real as possible giving different weights, power and spin to the balls and availing you many different lanes to unlock. There are many achievements to unlock as well as an online leaderboard where you can compete with your friends and check your standing in the competition.

The graphics of the game are decent with good in-depth detailing. The developers claim it to be the official game of the PBA and I think it deserves the title. Overall, the app is very good and I think it’s the best bowling app out there. It’s available for free in the App Store however you can buy gold pins via in-app purchases to unlock new lanes.

Pros: decent graphics; career, quickplayer and multiplayer modes; many achievements to unlock; online leaderboard; free.

Cons: none.
