The Alley Strikes Back 2.3 5 11 11
The Alley Strikes Back I like ball popping games and this one was different to play because it involved ten pin bowling as well April 14, 2015
Not too bad.... I've played worse... As one reviewer said, I too was excited to see a bowling game. Only this was just a bit too boring after the hour was up. Not sure what the game would turn out to be, but I don't think it will be a buy for me. I kept running out of balls, and there was no indicator of how many balls you had left, so that wasn't very good. I sure wish they would come out with a good bowling game, though. It can't be that hard to develop one, and the few that BF offers are just ok, but not great. It would sure be different than all the match 3 and HO games that seem to be mostly out there.

finally a new take on bowling I found the game simple to understand but difficult to succeed at April 16, 2015
Frustrating And Impossible The object of this game is simple, roll the white bowling balls at the white pins, the red balls at the red pins, the blue ball at the blue pins. Knocking down at least 3 pins at a time will increase the bonus meter, but knocking down fewer than 3 pins will decrease the meter. When the meter is full, you will receive a bonus ball such as the Strike Ball which automatically removes all pins of the same color as the pin that was aimed for. The problem....the pins keep moving forward, if they reach the foul line, game over. Next problem...it's nearly impossible to get more than three pins after just a few levels, no matter how many times you reset the level, which makes it difficult to get bonuses, or progress. The game quickly becomes painstakingly frustrating, and because of this, I threw in the towel (think I hit more pins with the towel!) April 15, 2015
Bad Bowling!! I played about 10 minutes of this game; I couldn't get any further. Even though you are shooting the balls at the pins, there are several balls in a roll that won't hit the target. It's nothing you're doing wrong, it just happens to be that way. It is an extremely frustrating game. This is one of the few games I do not recommend! April 14, 2015
Didn't care for it. This game isn't really like bowling, and it is very boring. Sometimes you have to throw around a hundred balls. Just didn't like it. April 15, 2015
Great potential but missed the mark This game could have been great! I love bowling games and was very excited to try this one. The premise has a lot of room for an interesting and addictive popper game. However, the premise is where the excitement and fun stops here. I played the demo and found myself incredibly bored by as little as the 3rd level (levels are divided into lanes so it was only the 3rd lane). I knew that when I yawned twice, and kept impatiently counting down the pins I needed to get as if it were a chore, that it wasn't a game for me. It was repetitive with very few colors to pop. The challenges were not interesting enough. The tutorial is brief and gets you playing right away, but it left me wondering how I was getting certain scores some times when I knock down a bunch of pins and not the next time I knocked down a bunch of pins (like the strike score). The graphics and music are a but outdated in my opinion. April 15, 2015
The 80's called and they want their music back I would describe this as a combination of bowling, match 3 and tetris. Bowling because there is a ball and pins, match 3 because you take out the matching pins together, and tetris because the pins gradually advance toward the foul line. Each ball has a color corresponding with the pins and can only take out pins of the same color. There are three different points on the lane where the ball can be launched and (I can't stress this enough) it is very important to quickly choose the one with the best angle to take out the most pins at once. Each game has at least two goals (i.e. number of balls used, minimum time to complete, number of "strikes" etc.). The first goal must be met to complete the level, while the other awards you extra points for purchasing things like better bowling balls. While playing you can earn special "bonuses" like a ball that takes out all the remaining pins of the color you choose, extra money, a small ball, and on and on. There are also challenges like bouncing pins, pins that parachute in, and a penalty for gutter balls. The music is right out of the 80's but the play is so fast paced you probably won't notice it. Arcade style games are not my style and this one does not have much going for it, but the play could be right up your alley nevertheless. Give it a try, you might just strike out - in a good way, that is. April 15, 2015
Do not buy! I played a whopping 16 minutes into the trial and shut it off! I have never shut off a game after playing such a short time! It has nothing to do with actual bowling. April 18, 2015
To use a bowling term, this game is a GUTTER BALL ! The Alley Strikes Back is a terrible version of balloon poppers. It has absolutely nothing to do with bowling. As someone who grew up at bowling lanes, I am appalled that the developer could so trivialize a wonderful sport. The premise it that renegade bowling pins are on the prowl and the bowler must remove them from the lane using variously colored balls to strike the same color pin. Should a pin reach the foul line, the bowler loses. If I want this type of game, I'll dig out my ancient Atari. For some unknown reason, the entire 60 foot lane is not used, the player has 3 places at the foul line to place a ball and then just point and click to hit pins. The player has no option to hook the ball. This game is in a word: awful. Why BFG offers on occasion games like this one is mindboggling. April 14, 2015
