    Dude! Where's the 300 Bowl "BIG UPDATE"? It's super late and I'm pissed off. Now they say it's just improvements to the pins. WHERE IS IT?!

    It was submitted on Friday, so it will get here once apple approves it.

    Realistic pin physics and graphics would be a huge improvement! I am running out of patience waiting for this update. Flick Bowling has one coming too, which is what I am really looking forward to getting. Real pin physics in that game would make it amazing.

    They said nothing about graphics. If they add graphics to the update I guess it will be a big update.

    It just wishful thinking on my part. 2D Pins are pretty lame, so if they didn't upgrade to 3D pins with true physics then they are going to get the worst reviews ever once the update is out.

    I'm working on the first Flick Bowling update now.

    It's just going to be behind the scenes stuff, memory management and some hooks we need in place.

    It's to stop the "crashing" (which isn't crashing at all, but the iPhone running out of RAM and the OS terminating the app).

    Then the bigger update will be out a little later.

    Sorry to talk about something regarding other game... Please, add statistics to Burning Monkey Casino. It'd be nice to keep track of winnings and how much cash you get to keep playing. Something like that:

    Initial cash: 200
    Spent: 100
    Win: 200
    Current cash: 300

    Games played: 10
    Winnings:8
    Loses: 2

    It'd be nice to also have per game statistics:

    Blackjack
    Games played = 4
    Winnings = 3
    Loses = 1
    Spent = 10
    Win = 5
    Sum = 5

    Or something like this. It can be another reason to keep playing the game because it's always nice to start something and have a goal (in this case, keep nice statistics).

    :)

    Please fix the bug where the pins are not all set up at the beginning of a frame. Also, since your sig shows you worked on Big Bang Board Games, please update this, it needs it.

    On a positive note, Freeverse is my favorite app developer!

    Thanks,

    We are digging into a lot of updates, but also continuing on new projects. First and priority with Bowling is to get the memory footprint down. Then we will dig into other bugs and features we have promised. We just finished a big Moto Chaser update that should go live soon.

    Big Bang Board Games is also on the list, but we've been saving for the Push Notification server from Apple.

    The 300 bowl update is out: 3d pins and a blue 3D ball, with a new name 300 Bowl 3D (wow!). Physics are bleh, as the pins all kinda float and go through each other, plus the game is about 1000x easier now. I had my hopes up, but this BIG update is a BIG disappointment.

    Flick bowling is so much better its not even funny.
