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.
•Multiplayer, Quickplay, and Career modes!
•Dozens of PBA Tournaments!
•Best 3D bowling graphics.
•Bowl against 21 of the best PBA bowlers!
•Over 30 different bowling balls with unique stats!
•Leaderboards and Achievements
•Bonus challenges in every tournament!
•Split Balls, Bomb Balls, and more!

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.
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?

The most recent update erased my current career status. I only had to beat the badger final in the world series of bowling to have all golds. This update ruined the game for me and i dont want to start completely over.
I enjoy bowling and this app until multiplayer. I enjoy it to. But what's the point of oil patterns if everyone throws straight. I actually try to hook it like I would in real life. But would he 5 stars just other players can make it less fun. Because way to many straight bowler. I'm not one to complain but its a peeve in this game
Have not played that much, but I have a hard time enjoying this in the early levels as you don't get to feel like your in a contest . you don't see the competitors play, only see the score in the end . its a good indepth game, I just wish it felt like I was in a real match .
It's a fun game, but it takes way too much energy to bowl a game. Takes the fun out of it when you have to wait for the energy to recharge. I'll rate it higher if you fix this problem.
With my phone the Gz One, when I tried to download it it said the package file was invalid.
