Challenge Accepted

The PBA Bowling App is as challenging as a game can get. Step one is to choose whether you want to be a quick game player where you are your biggest challenge or to choose to make bowling your career. Career play is the heart of the game and where the action is. With 21 of the PBA’s best bowlers waiting to send you to the gutter, the challenge starts immediately. The game has several levels with a unique and fun feature of starting you out low. Your first bowl will be in a local style bowling alley; dumpy surroundings and scuffed balls greet you as you try to take opponent number one down. From here you work your way up to classier bowling establishments,  trying to win regional and national trophies.

Unproductive? Hardly. The PBA Bowling app gives you tons of options to boost your gaming experience. There is an online multiplayer option that lets you bowl in real time against friends or get matched with random opponents using the game center service. You can also opt to bowl against the pros. PBA Bowling has taken this option seriously where the stats shown for each pro is based on actual stats. Their power output, hook, and control are all considered in making the accurate style, skills, and accurate recreations. Every win and loss is recorded on a leaderboard as well as a running tab of achievements you have earned. All of the challenges and trials, good games and bad, lead to the Tournament where your finger-flicking dexterity will either make or break your bowling career.
