"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.

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?

A variety of stats, including, power, hook and control, give each ball a unique feel on the lane and an assortment of colors and textures make sure you’ll look good while you roll.

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.

Best Bowling on mobile!

From the reflection of the ball as it travels the lustrous sheen of a well-oiled 3D lane to the thunder of the pins as they explode in a strike, this is bowling like it was meant to be experienced on mobile. Plus it works on tablets! This is PBA Bowling Challenge from Concrete Software. Powered by Dolby® on supported devices.

    Very addictive game with fun gameplay. BUT recently they added video ads that you can't click out of. This is incredibly annoying, especially if I have to exit the game to do something else on the phone. So far I just force close it but seriously has ruined the entire game for me.
