This is probably one
of the most entertaining casual game that I have played on the
iPhone by developers Freeverse Inc. Although bowling games have been
a dime a dozen in the world of gaming for a considerable amount of
time, only the Nintendo Wii could manage to capture the realistic
nature of this game. Thankfully Freeverse Inc. has managed to use
the innovative controls of the iPhone to create a unique and
entertaining bowling experience on this clever little smart phone.
Offering two modes
of play that include free play for a quick game or versus
that allows you to play against the AI or other players and Flick
Bowling has everything you need for that true authentic bowling
experience. Best of all, the developers have managed to capture the
atmosphere of the bowling alley to truly draw you in.
The gameplay is
quite ingenious on the iPhone and all you need to do is select your
ball from three, move your bowler left or right and then start
bowling. Once you have lined up your bowler, all you need to do is
flick your finger up the screen and this will mimic a real world
aspect of the game is that you can also control the ball once you
have bowled by moving your finger on the screen in a certain
direction. This will then move the ball in that direction to a
certain extend. Needless to say it works quite well as you aim for
those sometimes elusive strikes.
title is visually quite reminiscent of a bowling alley with that
authentic look and feel. The characters are well animated and there
are some great uses of lighting in the game. Add in all the sounds
from the bowling alley and it's easy to get lost in this fun and
entertaining bowling game.
At the end of the
day, Flick Bowling is the perfect casual game that can be played
almost anywhere, whether a short session by yourself or a
multiplayer epic, the choice is yours. Definitely a game that you
will keep coming back to ... again and again!
