A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Ease of Play

Strike Knight is like a combination of bowling and air hockey -- you slide a puck down a table at a bunch of pins. The sliding action is very natural, and there are no gutters to worry about.


If you do poorly, you may see a brief animation of bowling pins raining down on an armored knight. He will raise his shield to deflect them.


Ads for other apps run in a banner at the top of the screen.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

The game is set in a bar. You will see bar stools and a neon sign that reads, "BAR," but you will not see anybody drinking. You don't even see a single bottle or glass in the scenery.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that this fun, simple bowling app takes place in a bar, but that no bottles or beverages are shown anywhere in Strike Knight. Also, parents should be aware that a well-played frame will elicit cheers from an unseen crowd, but a frame in which you leave even one pin standing will earn laughter and boos. Also, Strike Knight can connect to the Plus+ social gaming network.

Is it any good?

STRIKE KNIGHT is the kind of app that it sometimes feels the iPhone was created for. It's set at a beautifully animated pinball-type arcade machine in a bar, on which you'll use your finger to  slide a smooth puck down a bumper-lined alley toward ten bowling pins. It looks and feels incredibly natural, as if you were really standing at just such a table game in real life. The game is scored just like regular bowling, but the ability to use the side bumpers for tricky bank shots and rebounds adds a whole new level of skill and strategy. It feels a bit harsh, though, to have onlookers laugh at you for missing even one pin.
