Bowl Against the Best! How do you think you’d fare against the cool confidence and pin-point accuracy of Walter Ray Williams, Jr. or the brash power stroke of Pete Weber? How would your scores stand up against the high spin and smooth release of Norm Duke or the high cranking backswing of Tommy Jones? This is your chance to find out as 22 of the PBA’s best bowlers stand between you and a variety of regional and national championship trophies. Based on actual statistics that track their power, hook, and control, PBA® Bowling Challenge strives to accurately recreate the skill and style of the top bowlers in the sport today.
Upgrade Your Game! Whether you like to power straight through to the nine pin or hook wide and skid-snap to the middle, with hundreds of different balls available, you’re sure to find one that suits your style. A variety of stats, including power, hook, and control, give each ball a unique feel on the lane and an assortment of colors and textures will make sure you’ll look good while you roll.
Special Balls! They may not be tournament legal in the real world, but these special balls can help you out in a tough tournament. When the lane seems too big and your ball seems too small, use the Lightning Ball! Its tendrils of electricity expand the ball to many times its original size as it moves down the lane, so it’s sure to hit something! Want to clear a 7-10 split without breaking a sweat? Try the Split Ball! It splits into two balls when you tap it! And when you absolutely, positively have to knock down every pin on the lane, the Bomb Ball is what you need. Just hit a single pin, any pin, for an explosive strike.
A Feast for the Senses! You can almost hear the squeak of your bowling shoes as you enter one of over a dozen unique bowling centers, from each one beautifully rendered in full 3D. Check out the reflection of the ball as it travels the lustrous sheen of a well-oiled lane. Feel the thunder of the pins as they explode in a strike. This is bowling like it was meant to be experienced on mobile. This is PBA® Bowling Challenge.
