Galaxy Bowl

Galaxy Bowl is my first real game for Android (I created a Sudoku game called Endless Sudoku in the early days and it flopped. Actually, now that I think of it, my more recent Sudoku game, Starlight Sudoku, also flopped. I’m staying away from Sudoku from now on!) It’s also the first game I’ve created entirely in 3D.

It’s a bowling game with a space theme. You can unlock bowling balls that look like the planets (complete with bump and specular maps for the nerd-dev-bowlers out there), and earn interstellar achievements like “Pale Blue Dot”.

Galaxy Bowl really came out of nowhere. I usually pick something fun to work on to learn a new development paradigm, but this is the first time my “Hello World” program became a product!

Get Galaxy Bowl for Android.



  1. Before I download the full version, I was hoping you could tell me whether or not the full version of galaxy bowl is 2 player or one player only. By the way, free version is incredible! By far the best I’ve seen. Hope to hear from you.

    • Hi Ted,

      The full version doesn’t have hot-seat 2-player mode (on the same device, for example), but it does have online leaderboards and achievements. So if you’re using two phones/tabs you could compete that way.

      I’ve gotten a few requests for a 2-player mode on the same device. I’m considering adding it in an upcoming update.

  2. Best bowling game on Android. Period.
