Old game far superior
I had the original Action Bowling Free. I loved this app and played for years. When I upgraded my iPhone iOS recently this app was part of the upgrade. What a mistake and major disappointment the new game is. The original game gave you the ability to customize the delivery of your ball both in speed and curvature. Now you choice between “ straight” or “ curve” already set. It also offered a set of free balls to use in addition to a vast number of purchase balls. Now there isn’t a free set only purchase. Last but not least the “action” in the old game was far superior than this new version. The new version seems cartoonish. Bad tech work guys

new update ruined my favorite old game
I’ve had your app on my phones for years now. Always pick it up here and there and play a game. Was still trying for a perfect game came real close 11 strikes and then 9 out of 10 last frame... heartbreak. So if that’s heartbreak this is the death of an old friend. The new update is like the other game you released which I did not care for. I don’t understand why you would not have made a new game or tweaked your other bowling game. It’s your game and your decision just very disappointing and not worth playing anymore. Thanks for all the good years.

Paid version full of Ads
This paid version used to be a great a game with lots of fun decorated balls and creatively designed alleys. Now all balls and alleys have to be re-earned (bought with virtual earned coins) and you are annoyingly bombarded with ads that you can’t get rid of. Paid games with ad banners permanently on your game screen and sudden full pop up ads that you cannot close out of should not be allowed in a full paid version of any game. DELETED.

A good Classic
I remember this game years ago. I still play it today and I also like the fact there is a second version in a separate app. Usually I don’t see that a lot but it’s good. One classic and one that is newer

Ruined a favorite
I’ve played this game regularly for at least the last 5 years. The new update is awful. It’s not the same game. The spin doesn’t work very well, it feels almost impossible to get a decent score, and I hate the overall feel of it. Really disappointed that a game I’ve played for years is essentially gone. Won’t be playing this version.

Why the change?????
What where you guys thinking????? I used to love this game, but now can’t stand it! You changed the mechanics, the ball positioning, and made the touch mechanics too sensitive, should have left the game alone, been a long time player since I my got my iPhone2 back in 08 I am seriously thinking about deleting you’re app????

When it ain’t broke, why fix it?
Sorry, but the newly updated Action Bowl just isn’t doing it for me. The action was fairly realistic with the previous version but not so with this. Fortunately, I was able to turn off the extremely annoying music and sound effects.

Fun game
Works perfectly on iPhone 6+. Curving the ball seems to only work one direction - left to right. The pin action violates the laws of physics on occasion. I think it's impossible to hit the pocket and take out ONLY the 1,3,5,&9 pins. 🤓

Rebuild completely ruined the game.
The old version of the game was FAR better. It had better physics, more features (customizable bowling balls, motion controls, trivia, etc) and had better graphics. The rebuild doesn’t have any of that.

Old Version Far Better
I have an older version of this game on my iPhone 4 that I can still play. Imo the old version blows this one away. I recently upgraded my iPhone 7’s iOS & was disappointed that I was forced to this latest version of this game; will be going back to my old iPhone to play!

Avoid this waste
This game is crap. No consistency. I can bowl 22 strikes in a row in practice mode then go to game mode and throw the exact same way and not get more than 1 strike in the game. Go back to practice and throw stoke after strike. This game is a joke. I gave it several hours of playing time with nothing to show. Find a better game and avoid this waste of time.

Thumbs down
Got my new iPhone and now everything is pay for this pay for that. You can’t pick you ball weight or make your own curve for your ball to take. The old version was way better. I’m very disappointed.

U ruined it
The free was better. Don’t need all the options. Can’t get anywhere near the scores I got with original game. Probably going to delete this app and be done with it. Why do programmers always mess with what works? Goodbye!!!!!

Not worth the price (free)
They claim that no other bowling game is in the same league as them and they are correct, this might have been the worst game I ever downloaded. If I could ask for a refund of my time, I would.

Action Bowling 1
Something has changed in this game. In the past, I bowled a perfect score all the time but Now, not even close. Also the ball curves on occasions and now there's more ads. So now I hardly use it.

Crashes as opens
I haven't been able to use this app for over a year. Whenever I try, it crashes upon opening. A major fix is in order. I'm giving 1star only because I really enjoyed the game in the past.

Latest version
Sad to rate game one star. Full version was paid for, when needed to update to new version many ads with option to purchase cosmetic changes. Disappointing changes I think.

Hate new version!
Before the update I played this and loved it. I’ve had several 300 games with the old version but with the new version I barely break 100 most times. Now I hate this game and won’t play it anymore.

Use to be a good game, I even bought in app purchases. Now it’s worthless with the update. Original was awesome, now it’s just something a toddler would like bc of the cartoonish design. Also no more photos on the bowling balls.

Ruined the game
I’ve had this app for years, used to play on occasion to unwind. Glitch free, fast, fun. This new version has completely ruined that. Monumental lags, terrible responsiveness, just heavy. Sadly have to delete it. Just unplayable.

Another Good One has Died!
This new game is a joke. My average was about 170. Now it’s 124. I could get 1-2 strikes in a game. I have not had a strike in the last 9 games. Glad I did not shell out anything for this junk app.

You guys literally overwrote the first game with the same software as the same game. They are both identical to each other.

Update is bad.
The action is lost in this game where the pins act like sand bags. Or it’s like bowling with a 2 lbs. ball. It was better the old way before the major update.
