Your Windows 8 tablet or Windows 8 desktop or hybrid device can become a real playing tool, for that, you only need to download and install the best apps from the Windows Store. Today, we’re featuring some entertaining Windows 8 bowling apps to be played on your tablet.
Previously, we have shared with you plenty of interesting games that you could play on your Windows 8 tablet – billiards games like snooker or the classic pool game, various cards games like UNO or Bridge and plenty other interesting Windows 8 games. Now, I realized that even bowling games can be played on your Windows 8 laptop, hybrid or tablet, so have decided to scout the Windows Store for some interesting titles. Here are the best 4 such games that I could found.
Trick Shot Bowling for Windows 8 comes with interesting trick shots that you can try on your Windows 8 tablet or desktop device. Don’t worry, you will be able to find the classic 10 pin games mode, but there’s also the option of trying various trick shot pin configurations. There are 24 unlockable balls with different weight, speed, and hooks. You can control the direction and spin of your bowling ball with your finger or mouse. Up to 4 different players can play on a local game.
Another fun Windows 8 bowling game is Vegas Bowling Free. This is the free version of the game which is limited in functionality and also includes advertising. The paid app costs $4.99, but for a certain reason, it has a worse rating than the free version. There are four opponents of increasing difficulty, and special features of the game include realistic physics, adjustable curve balls, score history and also the ability to save or resume bowling games.
Lucky Lanes Bowling is definitely one of the best Windows 8 bowling games and my personal favorite. You can play in multiplayer mode against up to five of your friends in a game that features realistic physics keep and stunning graphics. The music is also great and the intuitive controls make it easier to score that strike that you want. The game also has 4 downloadable environments where you can play: Doc Holliday’s Summer Retreat, Major Tom’s Space Odyssey, Tiki Rain Forest, Captain Ahab’s Belly of the Whale, Graceland’s Hidden Playhouse.
The Golden Pin Bowling game for Windows 8 is part of the Gutterball franchise that has been launched back in 2002 and has plenty of players across the world. The game comes with 7 fun and unique alleys, more than 30 custom bowling balls and plenty of other features. Throughout the game, you will collect gold pins that you will use to enhance the game. There are more than 40 bowling achievements in this interesting game, so go ahead and start breaking ’em bowling balls with your friends.
