Blindfold Bowling

Category: 

Description of App: 

Blindfold Bowling is an fully accessible audio game that's similar to the ten pin bowling.

In Blindfold Bowling, you can play by yourself, against a variety of computer opponents, or side-by-side with another person.

You throw the bowling ball by either flicking with one finger, or aiming with one finger and flicking, or setting the exact angle with your thumb and forefinger, and then flick. The faster you flick, the faster you throw the ball.

You hear the ball rolling down the alley, and hitting pins. Like real bowling, you can get a strike, or a spare, or even miss completely with a gutter ball. And you can post your high scores to Facebook or Twitter.

Blindfold Bowling was suggested by several blind gamers who enjoyed Blindfold Pong and Blindfold Spades.

The game includes several in-app upgrades, including a starter pack for unlimited play, an ability to customize your ball and the pins to make the game harder, to let you pick and customize your competitors, and side-by-side mode.

Good sound and challenging, especially with the highest aiming method. A game that has been long awaited by bowlers. While the game operation is easily understood, success is not easily achieved. I love it.
