Cheesey-Campy arcade bowling game, controls well though a bit too much control over the ball. Each game is won by proper use of power ups and hazards. Would be better if it could be controlled like Wii Sports Bowling.

Overally pretty cute, not bad at 90% off or less. Unless your dying for a bowling game.

Simple-minded fun to the max. Chances to win mostly depend on power-ups you get. Getting all the achievements is another fun side, since there is pretty much no story, although completing the free mode might be a ♥♥♥♥♥. This could really benefit from having an online multiplayer mode.

Zombie Bowl-o-Rama is nothing special, but might pass some idle time while you're on a long conference call. It feels very much like a well-crafted mobile game. The game consists of you bowling down a lane full of zombies, overcoming obstacles and traps like water on the bowling lane and deploying tricks that you earn to improve your game. The controls are okay, but odd. You use the mouse to adjust the power behind your roll and then once the ball is out of your hands, you directly control its movement with the mouse -- moving left to right.

It's an idle-time amusement and little more. Not worth the price, but not a broken or terrible game. If you're into this kind of thing, I'd wait until it hit a buck or two before buying. That's about the price of a decent iPad game and that's about what this is.

Fun little time waster. The power ups keep it interesting and slightly more challenging. Overall not a very difficult game but seems to have a lot of levels to play.

Finished the game in 2 hours so I will not be writing a full review.
The graphics are fine, you can choose from 3 options- Low, Medium, High.
It's a bowling game... + Zombies + Powerups + Smooth gameplay = This game.
The A.I. Of the game is pretty easy, beat the story mode with loosing 1 or 2 times.
I suggest picking this game up when it's on sale. Fun short time waster.

This game is really fun. The problem I had is that it is really short. More levels would have been awesome! Still really fun though. It's silly and entertaining.

Got this in a cheap bundle and it is my favourite of those in the bundle so far. It is very casual and is a great game to play for 30mins. It certainly is worth getting cheap and if you have friends that'll enjoy it with you then even the full price isn't too bad.

The 'story mode' part was a little easy and the story was almost non-existent. But as a bit of occasional fun it succeeds.
It'd probably be even more fun with other people and would get a little boring in single player after a little while.

If you have ever wanted to take down zombies with a bowling ball this is the game for you!

A Review Mostly for me so I know I’ve completed the story, as well as feedback on the game.

My Thoughts:- A fun bowling game, Smash some zombies with the bowling ball of your choice, not much else to say about the game other than its a lot of fun.

Achievements:- 21 of 21 (100%) Achievements Earned

What Could Be Added: Online Multiplayer

Rating:- 7/10

not worth the 9.99$ they're asking, but i got it on sale for about a buck and it was totally worth it. not a serious/realistic bowling game obviously, with the power ups that help you or hurt the opponent and ov course zombies from space...
i did get a few good hours out of it, and that's about all i'm asking for from a 1 dollar game.

Weird and Suprisingly Enjoyable

This game is indeed very strange. Bowling and Zombies are not exactly the sort of things you would imagine would go well together and yet, here we are with 'Zombie Bowl-O-Rama' from Mumbo Jumbo, proving me totally wrong.

Why does it work so well? Its simple, it just adds so much crazy and fun to each scene, imagine chucking a giant lettuce against a bunch of disco dancing zombies or sending bees everywhere sliding a honey-ball across a icy path. It makes no sense but it happens to also be so playable too, simple controls keeping things very accessable.

As you can see I am slightly having issues with what to exactly say. I guess all I can say is 'Lets Go Bowling for Brains!'

A nice acquisition to your everyday zombie themed games. It's one of a kind, not really sure where will you find another bowling game with zombies...from out of space.

Really casual, entertaining, with almost no bugs what so ever. Can keep you occupied for an hour or two (alone or with friends) with it's diversity of power-ups.

Well, due to being a simplistic game, has minimum of options and no difficulty settings what so ever...so the computer most of the times is rather incompetent so you won't have trouble winning a game.

I know what you're thinking: Holy crap, this game looks really stupid!

Well, it is stupid, but it's also fun. In most cases, video game bowling sucks (I've never been a fan of REAL bowling, either), but this game has a nice twist to it. While rolling your ball down the lane, you can somewhat control it and when doing so, you can grab different positive and negative items.

Positive items help YOU, whereas negative items hurt your opponent, which can be a real person or the AI. This adds a whole new dynamic to the game and turns what could've been a real flop into something quite entertaining.

There are achievements (if that means a whole lot to you) and a "normal" bowling mode, just in case you don't want to deal with crazy game items. I don't know WHY you'd want to do that, but it's there.

You can play against a real person if you want. This is restricted to local gameplay on ONE PC, so you can't bowl against anyone online.

Zombie Bowl-O-Rama. What's there to say really? It's a bowling game where you can pickup various power-ups on the lanes. The power-ups are both offensive and defensive with the offensive ones varying in power between forcing a gutter ball and being completely useless and the defensive ones vary between guaranteeing a strike and guaranteeing a spare.

There is not really much else to say about this game, it is very short, simple and random.

Do you like Bowling? Do you like Zombies? Do you like Randomness?

Unless the answer to all three is a resounding "HELL YEAH" then you should stay away from Zombie Bowl-O-Rama because that's all it really is, and it's not particularly good at any of it either.
