Why the stealthy update? What gives?"
You are simply going to have to trust me on this one. This is just preparation for bigger things that are coming. It'll be worth it. Go look at my Facebook page at www.facebook.com/polarbowlergame and you'll see.
App DescriptionA Polar Bear in an inner tube? Wait, he's BOWLING in the inner tube and there's a penguin with a towel?
PB has always loved Polar Bowling. When he was a kid, his dad built him a little alley and gave him an inner tube. Since then he's been launching himself down the lane trying to knock over anything that resembles a bowling pin. As PB grew older, he began thinking he could build a better mousetrap, er...bowling alley. What better place to build it than his own backyard? Building was hard work though! So, he forged a work order at his father's business, PB Industries, and had a polar bowling alley constructed FOR him in his own backyard.
So every afternoon, it's time to bowl.
And bowl he does.
Originally available for play on your PC, Mac, or even the Nintendo DS, Polar Bowler has been knocking down pins all over the world. We've brought him back and built him a whole new alley on the iPhone and iPad. Check out some highlights of the new lane as you bowl:
- A giant "Jumbotron" at the end of the lane
- A bigger better Bear Return for convenience
- A fountain and statue for....ambiance
- J the penguin who operates the pin machine and hands PB a towel when he needs it.
SEE A PENGUIN! Watch in amazement as "J" the penguin and PB's valet hands you sports drinks and towels to help combat the extreme effort it takes to bowl with an inner tube.
OUT 'TUBE YOUR FRIENDS! Get your pineapple shirt on and toss your device to a friend. Our hot-seat multiplayer feature lets your friend try to be a better polar bowler than you. Yeah, we don't think they can either.
CRATE SCOTT! CRATES ARE HERE! Collect crates that appear in the middle of the bowling alley. Craziness! They contain either boosts that help you get a better bowling score or multipliers that help you get a better Polar Score. The Polar Score goes on a Game Center leader board for EVERYONE to see.
WHOA! OPTIONS THAT ARE FUN! Turn on the bowling bumpers to bounce the tube down the alleyway. If you get tired of tapping to steer down the alley, try our slide control to steer your inner tube. We don't know how the 'tube actually steers. We leave that up to PB and don't ask questions.
POLAR SCORING? That's right - Polar Scoring. Regular old bowling scoring is well and good, but we wanted to inject some fun things for you to try out. Try bouncing yourself off of bumpers for the Bumper Bonus. If you graze a pin and it baaaarely goes down, you might just earn the Tip It! Bonus. Or you can just throw strikes because the more strikes in a row you throw, the higher your Strike Streak Bonus.
FUN ACHIEVEMENTS! Who doesn’t like achievements? Nobody! Go earn some fun achievements. They were approved by PB himself. Now that’s a high quality bar!
