Bowling King update

We’ve been blown away by how many of you are playing and loving Bowling King, and can now announce that we’re about to roll out another update to the game. We’ve listened to the feedback from players and are addressing a couple of things that have been raised a lot on the Bowling King Facebook page. This update will require some server maintenance, so the game will be temporarily unavailable on Thursday 15 October at 06:00 UTC / 02:00 EST while these changes go out.

Here’s the main things we’re changing:

Challenge Mode tweaks

Challenge Mode is one of the new game modes we introduced with our last release, where you complete stages filled with obstacles to win prizes. We’ve had a lot of feedback that the target score for some of these stages is too high, so we’re making a tweak to make them slightly easier. The new target scores will be:

  • Stage 1-5: 30
  • Stage 6-10: 35
  • Stage 11-20: 40
  • Stage 21-30: 45
  • Stage 31-40: 50

Good luck on your route to the end of each week’s set of challenges!

New Halloween items

With Halloween just a couple of weeks away, we’re adding a couple of spooky items into the game to help you get into the spirit. We’ve got two new bowling balls, the Graceful Ghost and my personal favourite, the Moonlight Witch, both coming to the game.

Pick up these spooky new balls in the game soon – they both have some cool visual effects when you bowl them.

Other stuff

We’re also fixing a couple of minor things, and bringing further optimization to the game server, all of which should make your Bowling King experience that little bit smoother.

Look out for these changes coming very soon, and a reminder that the game will be down for maintenance on Thursday morning. If you’ve not played Bowling King yet, download it for free now from the App Store or Google Play, or you can play it in your browser on Facebook.

See you on the lanes!

      • Why do have to use hearts if I did not fail to pass the next level? I should be able to continue and only use hearts when I fail. The way it is I would have to ask for hearts from Facebook friends that play and none of my friends play this game!

        • my question is that also. if I reach the score I was supposed to in each level why does it take a heart away from me. If this is the case I get to level 5 and run out of hearts and can’t go any further. Asking friends to give hearts is harder than it seems because none of my friends play this game. Seems kinda stupid to me to do it this way.

  1. How come my wife’s samsung tablet and my i4 has the tournament and new mini games updates and my kindle fire does not

    • My friend needs an udate on bowling king in order for us to challenge each other. She uses a Kindle. Help me help her..we both love the game

  2. Last week I got 5 hearts every 3 hours now this week I only get 1. Why doesn’t it replenish all the hearts every 3 hours?. And too why do I lose my hearts when I reach the goal that is set? Doesn’t make any sense.

    • I agree with you, we shouldn’t lose hearts when we reach the goal. I only get hearts rarely now, when I started with this game I was getting 5 hearts. This is disappointing

  3. It won’t let me play the mini games because it says to use my heart’s and come back.. help!! What does this mean?? ???

  4. on Bowling king can someone tell me how to delete people off my friends list? I have quite a bit who don’t play anymore and would like to add more..

  5. Please can you be fair and care with Bowling King to have the choice to turn on/off chat while playing games like you offer in Pool I’m not interested in playing, because it’s deterring me from enjoying therefore buying chips. There are very immature and highly rude, so very annoying to try and enjoy plays regardless of winning or losing with opponents hitting chat button fast and continually so if it continues much longer, due to the stress vs. fun excitement not good for me and certain not good for tons of others also who are disabled (or not) trying to escape nuisances and worse, unnecessary bad stress. Thank you in advance for taking the time to read my comment, request and needs as I truly don’t wish to uninstall app but can’t take much more of it and in all lanes up to 1 million so far for me personally. I won’t re-enter 1m or above from no chat off feature choice.If you believe no chat off and on feature sells more chips, respectively it’s not mostly the case and definitely deterring me. I’m not interested in purchasing chips for grief..Also, I would love the choice in app to show my fb name n profile pic as my choice before a play vs. having to uninstall bowling king on fb n play as guest losing my chips but the least of my concerns, needs of 2 here. Many Thanks for all the awesome positives you do offer! For all else but no chat off or on feature while playing, I’m very grateful living physically disabled stuck at Home day after day with much gratitude to use my finger to have something to actually enjoy and escape, distract myself so young and stuck. I’m not looking for pity just some empathy and understanding please? May you and yours have a happy healthy New Year 2017
