    Flick Bowling is a great way to waste time. Price tag may be a little high for those who aren't huge fans of bowling but it's a lot better than most of the games found on the app store.

    Replayable: Yes
    Rating: 4 of 5

    Pros:
    Colourful
    Mix of different characters
    Easy to learn
    Ability to choose your own ball.
    VS Mode against human or computer
    No lag

    Cons:
    No online play
    No tournament or league play
    No ability to change characters name
    Unable to create a character
    Flick sometimes tricky until you get the hang of it.

    Surely it's a bit easy, repetitive and boring?

    It's bowling. Of course it's repetitive ;) I wouldn't say boring though if you're a fan of these types of games.

    It's just one you can pick up and have a quick game of bowling.

    added Con: Totally missing a glow in the dark feature lol.

    Thanks for the heads up. After reading your review and checking the App Store info I decided to give it a try.

    Pin animation is very bad and there seems to be a lag after choosing your ball. I think 300 is still better. There seems to be a trend of just because something is new that it must be better.

    Reboot your phone or something. Absolutely no lag in this game for me. Played all day.

    I'm a bowling fan so I'll have to give 300 a try. I've seen it but haven't had the chance to grab it. Thanks for the heads up

    Yeah...The game doesn't lag per se, I meant when you click the ball sometimes it takes longer for the dude to appear on the lane than other times. If the pin animation was better I think it would be an incredible game.
