The game offers a more simplified user interface. When you open the home screen, five access buttons are immediately available for you. From there, you can choose single player, network games, pass-and-play, and settings.

Simply tap any game mode to open the bowling alley. Gameplay in this version is much simpler: just position the ball in any angle you want and flick your finger to release it. The ball will always take a straight path the moment you release it. Predicting its trajectory towards the pins is fairly easy.

Action Bowling 2 allows some level of customizations to the game but they are mostly cosmetic in nature. It allows you to buy custom bowling balls and background themes using the in-game coins. You can earn coins for every session; but you also have the option to purchase coin packs to get more custom features.
