    If you want to explore every last upgrade in this free game, you'll probably need to invest some of your real money at some point, but there's more than enough content up front to keep you busy and amused for at least a few hours this weekend.

    Sure it's zombies, but you'll forgive me for letting that point slide when the gameplay has such an incredible zen-like approach - swing away at the undead, or let them dance the night away; either way you get the last laugh.

    The Bowling Dead is a fun, somewhat original action game in which you can kill zombies by using a... bowling ball.

    Deeply silly and full of gimmicky distractions, The Bowling Dead simply isn't fun enough to match its outrageously daft concept.

    It's not quite gripping enough to want to sink so much time into it. It's fun for a little while, but it's not the kind of game that will make the hours vanish. It's just too shallow for that and, while new elements are slowly unlocked, the gameplay never truly evolves.

    The 'throwing bowling balls at zombies' gameplay feels pretty flakey and the humour doesn't really do it for us. [March 2013, p.27]

    Tons of cheesy fun! The art looks cool, the bowling works pretty well. I think I just like the different varieties of bowling balls available! Try them all out! Collapse
