The #1 bowling game on the App Store is about to get even better! We’re happy to announce that Miniclip now publishes Bowling King, and we’re celebrating this fact by getting ready to release a HUGE new update to the game, bringing a ton of new features and improvements.
Of course, at heart, Bowling King will still be the same bowling game that has been downloaded millions of times and is already super-popular. We don’t want to mess with that core gameplay. But we are adding a lot of things that we hope will make the game even better! Let’s walk through some of the new stuff.
Challenge Mode is a brand new game mode, replacing Single Game. It’s a 40-stage challenge, played solo, with prizes awarded for each stage that you clear. This isn’t ordinary bowling though – each stage has its own unique layout and obstacles to overcome. On some stages you’ll have to swerve past barriers, or hurl your ball up ramps, or manoeuvre your way across moving platforms – all while trying to hit the target score for that stage. It’s not easy, but the prizes are worth it!
More bowling balls
One of our favourite things about Bowling King is the different balls that you can use. Some of them have different effects, like a higher max power to your throw, or extra hook for when you need to spin the ball back to pick up a spare. And of course, some of them just look awesome (definitely eyeing-up the Midas’ Touch ball at the moment).
There are now over 60 balls for you to add to your collection, and blow your opponents away with. Have a browse through the revamped shop and see which one takes your fancy.
New level system; higher level cap
If you’re a longtime Bowling King player, chances are that you’re already close to – or already at – the level cap of 99. We’re pleased to say that we’re going to be raising the level cap to 150, to give you the chance to keep levelling-up and collecting rewards.
We’re also revamping how the level system works in the game – for starters, you will no longer be “locked out” of different stages because your chip balance is too high. You’ll be able to play in whatever stage you want, as long as you’ve got the chips to afford the entry fee of course.
New stage, new prizes
We’ve also rebalanced the entry fees and prizes that are available in all the 1v1 tiers in the game. The prizes range from 5,000 chips in Los Angeles, right the way up to a massive 50 million chips in Vegas! We’ve added a new stage, Seoul, that not only looks great but provides a nice choice for players who feel comfortable staking 125,000 chips, but maybe aren’t quite ready to risk a cool 500,000 chips on the next step up, the Caribbean stage.
Send and receive gifts from your friends
Another new thing we’re adding is the ability to send gifts to your friends in the game, and receive gifts from them in turn. Gifting allows you to send a package of 2,500 free chips to any of your Facebook friends once per day. These chips aren’t taken from your own stash – they’re completely free for you and your friends. You can also send and request hearts, which are needed to play the Challenge Mode stages.
Look out for the new Gifts button in the game with this update.
New Offline Practice mode
Can’t get online, and still fancy a quick bowling fix? We’ve got a new Offline Practice mode for you. It’s very similar to the new Challenge Mode, but without the entry requirements or prizes. Still, it’s a great chance to practice your skills and get ready for the real thing.
These are the main new features we’ve added, but we’ve also made a ton of performance improvements to Bowling King. These include cleaning up the game’s menus and interface, making it easier for you to jump into a game or navigate to your achievements list or your bowling ball collection. Oh and we’ve also massively improved the game’s loading time, to ensure you don’t have to wait for long before getting started.
So that’s what we’ve got for you, coming soon to Bowling King. This update will be out soon, so keep an eye on the official Bowling King Facebook page for all the latest news about the release. In the meantime, get Bowling King on your mobile or tablet from the App Store or Google Play, and hold tight for our new update!
