How to play:
In each of the 6 rounds, the players bowl in turns.
Each player has up to 3 throws per round to hit the most pins.
To bowl, use your finger to direct the ball toward the pins.
The direction and momentum is the most important part. It’s best to try it a few times until you get the hang of it.
The current score can always be seen over the pause button (II).
When all 6 rounds are complete, the game is over and the final score is displayed.
Another Nine-pins party can begin! :)
The number of players, balls per game-round, game-rounds and the computer-enemys(AI) skills can be set before the game starts!
Points and Winner:
For every pin knocked over, the player gets two points.
If all the pins are down, (this is called “full” or a “strike”), the player gets five extra bonus points.
If all the pins are knocked down except the one in the middle (the Kingpin), the player bowled a Crown ("Ring") and gets ten extra bonus points.
If only the Kingpin falls and all other pins are left standing, the player gets twelve points.
If the player bowls and doesn’t hit any of the pins, that’s called a Poodle and the player gets one point taken away.
The player with the most points wins.
What is Nine-pins?
