"How to clear a 7 - 10 split"

Reviewed by / Feb 20, 2013

A fantasy bowling game

Obviously, this game is a bowling game. The only difference is that it isn't what we could say "realistic", but we can indeed tell you it's technically outstanding. Graphics and sounds are far above average, and Concrete Software has put a lot of energy into honing touch response and all the gameplay experience overall.

PBA Bowling Challenge is actually a pretty good bowling game. However, it may disappoint hardcore bowlers because of all the fantasy stuff (lighting ball?) that skews the bowling experience and brings this game closer to an arcade rather than an actual bowling simulator. All those FX throws (explosive strike?) may spoil the game you were expecting. On the other hand, there's a deep career mode, different balls with different stats and a handful of little nice details to liven the night up.

Career mode is at the heart of PBA Bowling Challenge, but if you’d rather just lace up and take to the lanes, we’ve got you covered. Choose from a wide variety of opponents and locations and unlock even more content in Career Mode!

Bowl against the best!

How do you think you’d fare against the cool confidence and pin-point accuracy of Walter Ray Williams, Jr. or the brash power stroke of Pete Weber? How would your scores stand up against the high spin and smooth release of Mike Fagan or the high cranking backswing of Jason Belmonte? Based on actual statistics that track their power, hook, and control, PBA Bowling Challenge strives to accurately recreate the skill and style of the top bowlers in the sport today.

Split Ball, Bomb Ball, and more!

They may not be tournament legal in the real world, but these special balls can really help you out in a tough tournament.

If the lane seems too big and your ball seems too small, the Lightning Ball’s swirling storm of electricity is sure to hit something!

Want to clear a 7-10 split without breaking a sweat? Try the Split ball! It splits into two balls when you tap it!

And when you absolutely, positively have to knock down every pin on the lane, the bomb ball is what you need. Just hit a single pin, any pin, for an explosive strike.

Powered by Dolby® on supported devices.

Recently changed in this version

We adjusted the pinsetter, resurfaced and leveled the lanes, applied lane oil and fixed some minor bugs.

All lanes open. What’s your shoe size?

    This is an awesome game but unless you are very patient it will cost you some money to advance yourself in the game. I have never spent money in a game before but I purchased two balls, the ultimate and the professor. both make it easier to play the game and with the ultimate I can easily increase energy and the professor allows me to increase experience. I purchase them when gold pins were on sal

    Great game, but it froze up, and had to uninstall and reinstall. After that lost all achievements. Was level 35, at least 230 gold pins, halfway through second regional tournaments, over 21 days consecutive on free spins. All gone. What's the use of logging into Facebook if it doesn't backup your account? Really sucks.
