There is no question that Bowling Central is one of the coolest iOS games we have ever seen. There is also no question that it’s one of the craziest and most dangerous iOS games we have ever seen. Nintendo’s first-generation Wii was a huge success thanks to the novelty of motion-sensing controllers that let gamers control things by swinging their Wii remotes around.
Now, there’s an iOS game that lets you relive the Wii’s popular bowling game using your iPhone in place of a Wii controller.
Via iMore, a new game called Bowling Central is sure to provide plenty of fun… until an iPhone slips out of a hand and smashes into an HDTV screen. The app uses AirPlay to stream the game to an Apple TV, and then the iPhone’s accelerometer allows players to bowl by swinging their iPhones back and forth.
We cannot stress enough our recommendation that people not play this game with an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus, which are the two most slippery phones on the face of the planet.
Here’s the app’s full description:
