Ninepin Bowling

Today's app of the day is Ninepin Bowling.


There are plenty of bowling games for Android devices, but I am yet to experience one with the realism of Ninepin Bowling. Everything from the graphics, to the physics, the actual bowling motions and even the look of the bowling room / alley has been perfectly replicated in this well polished android app.

Gameplay is as would be expected in a bowling game, with the app presenting a variety of options for gaming, such as the number of player (up to 9), the number of rounds, and the number of balls per round. 

The actual bowling motion involves flicking your finger down the alley, with the flick directed towards the pins you want to hit. In my experience the control scheme is simple but responsive and ensures there is a sufficient degree of skill involved to make competitive play worthwhile. 

All in all, this is an excellent bowling simulation, well worth an install on your Android device! 











In the words of the developer:

The ultimate fun with Nine-pins
Watch out Ninepin fans!
The virtual Nine-pin Bowling Alley is always in your pocket and ready for a party whether you’re on your own, with friends, or even the whole team.
Up to 9 players can compete against each other at this accurately-designed virtual bowling alley.
Features:
- basic Nine-pins app for ultimate fun
- single player and multi-player modes for up to 9 players
- realistic simulation of Nine-pins thanks to PhysicsEngine!
- super 3D graphics and sound
- runs on Smartphones and Tablets

How to play:
In each of the 6 rounds, the players bowl in turns.
Each player has up to 3 throws per round to hit the most pins.
To bowl, use your finger to direct the ball toward the pins.
The direction and momentum is the most important part. It’s best to try it a few times until you get the hang of it.
The current score can always be seen over the pause button (II).
When all 6 rounds are complete, the game is over and the final score is displayed.
Another Nine-pins party can begin! :)
The number of players, balls per game-round, game-rounds and the computer-enemys(AI) skills can be set before the game starts!
Points and Winner:
For every pin knocked over, the player gets two points.
If all the pins are down, (this is called “full” or a “strike”), the player gets five extra bonus points.
If all the pins are knocked down except the one in the middle (the Kingpin), the player bowled a Crown ("Ring") and gets ten extra bonus points.
If only the Kingpin falls and all other pins are left standing, the player gets twelve points.
If the player bowls and doesn’t hit any of the pins, that’s called a Poodle and the player gets one point taken away.
The player with the most points wins.
What is Nine-pins?
Nine pin bowling is a sport where a player rolls a ball in one direction at at a controlled speed.
The goal is to knock down the most pins that are standing at the end of the lane.

Wish - shopping made fun - and easy - and cheap!

These days sites like Amazon or eBay make buying and selling online quick and easy. Unfortunately, sometimes the sheer breadth of products available (everything on earth!) makes it difficult to impulse buy or get the same experience one haves when wandering around a shop or past windows. Luckily, apps now exist to replicate that experience.

The best of the lot is Wish - which has the tagline 'shopping made fun' which could not be more true! When opening the app there are lots of categories to choose from, allowing you to pick the type of products you want to browse and going from there. Buying and checking out is only ever a few clicks away and if you are not careful you will very quickly load up on more products than you need!

I've launched sites that help out with buying cheap gadgets in the past, and it was heavily inspired by apps such as Wish which really allow someone to sit back and take pleasure in the shopping experience again! Download Wish now!

Cosmic Cow

Today's app of the day is Cosmic Cow.



"Endless" games are very in vogue at the moment, whether it be endless running, endless jumping or endless flapping, there are plenty of ways to get unlimited, and challenging gaming fixes. That doesn't mean that there aren't great new games being created in the genre, with Cosmic Cow being one such example.

In essence, Cosmic Cow combines two great styles of game play, one being a side scrolling endless-type game, and the other being the classic side scrolling space ship shooter, popularised in numerous incarnations on 8 and 16 bit consoles of decades past. As a "cosmic cow" (can't help but love it!), the player has to navigate through space, shooting or dodging asteroids and other attacking spaceships. The cow can collect a variety of objects to earn points - though mainly interesting foods that just happen to be floating through space. As points are accumulated, the player can also collect coins to spend on a v…
