More and more Nine-pin bowling alleys are closing. But it's so much fun to send that heavy ball rolling down that long lane toward nine standing pins with the hope that all will fall.

"Ninepin Bowling" is available for all major systems. A real feature: "Ninepin Bowling" can be started on the Windows PC, used on the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad, installed on the Mac, accessed by the Kindle and Android devices, and also started with Linux. The multi-platform game can be played by bowling fans regardless of their system.
The players who start "Ninepin Bowling" enjoy a 3D lane that is based on an official bowling alley. The player grabs the ball and competes against several virtual opponents. It is also possible to start a multiplayer game with up to nine participants. Before each game, you can choose how many rounds you want in the match, with the maximum being 20 rounds. Each player throws only once per round and scores points. It is not possible to throw a spare or a second ball to knock down the remaining pins.
The game is played with the fingers. Swipe a finger on the mobile device (or use a mouse on a stationary PC) to send the ball on its way. The pins are animated and go falling when hit, and the points are displayed on the scoreboard.
To score points: Each player gets 2 points for every pin that falls. If all nine fall (Strike), an extra 5 points are awarded. If all pins fall but the "King" in the middle, the player has thrown a "Ring" and an extra 10 points are awarded. If only the king falls, it's worth 12 points. If the ball goes past and doesn't hit any pins, the play is called a "Pump" and points are taken away. At the end of all the rounds, the player with the highest score wins.
