10 Pin Shuffle™ contains two great games in one, played in a realistic 3D environment!
 SHUFFLEBOARD the game you’ve enjoyed in your local bar. Play against a friend or a computer opponent trying to out-shuffle each other’s weights or blast them off the table.
 BOWLING with real 3D pin physics! Similar to 10 Pin Bowling except played on a shuffleboard table using weights/pucks instead of a bowling ball. If you liked Wii Sports Bowling then you're going to love your 10 Pin Shuffle™ bowling experience.
PEER-TO-PEER MULTIPLAYER HAS ARRIVED!! Challenge a friend to a game of Shuffleboard or Bowling using either Bluetooth or a local Wi-Fi connection.
The powerful "Newton" 3D physics engine provides the most realistic pin collisions of any ten pin bowling game available on the App Store to date. Play on your own, against a friend or against one of several computer opponents of varying skill levels.
* Impressive 3D graphics.
* Real 3D physics engine and accurate pin physics.
* Peer-to-Peer multiplayer over Bluetooth or Wi-Fi.
* Instant replays of great shots.
* Unlock new opponents of increasing skill levels.
* Crowd reactions that reflect your moves in real time.
* Realistic sound effects capture every nudge, bump, and collision on the table.
* Controls that are easy to grasp, but challenging to master.
* Turkey rewards and winners animations.
* Bowling statistics and game scores are tracked and saved each game.
* Listen to your iPod music library while you play.
* Resume game if iPhone is interrupted.
* Works on all iPhones and iPod touch models from OS 2.0 to OS 3.x
* Two fun games for the price of one!
For Peer-to-Peer play have either Bluetooth or Wi-Fi enabled, but not both. They use the same antenna and can cause connection problems. Bluetooth requires iPhone 3G, 3GS or iPod touch 2G with iPhone OS 3.0 installed. Wi-Fi works on all devices and any iPhone OS.
For non American readers, shuffleboard is a fun and popular game found in many bars around America. It's played on a long smooth table sprinkled with "shuffleboard wax" to create a very low friction surface that the shuffleboard weights can easily slide on. Each player takes it in turns to slide four weights as far down the table as they can without landing in the gutters. The person who shoots the furthest each round wins the points. It's similar to the sport of curling without having to suffer the indignity of running after your puck and polishing the ice with a funny looking brush. Shuffleboard is a fun, skill game in its own right and if you haven't tried it before then give it a whirl!
Please visit our website at http://www.10PinShuffle.com for additional screenshots and video clips of the game play.

This game is so much fun!!!
Mixing shuffle board and bowling what a great idea.
Or you can just play shuffle board by it self your choice.
You can play your music and hear the game in the background, like and arcade.
One thing to fix is, when you finish a game. And you pick main menu it kicks out of the program.
So you have enter the game again.
You don't loose your place but a slight anoyens.
Besides that I'm going back to play some more!!!
Best Bowling game in the App store !
By: CowboyMan38 - Jun 15, 2009
I have tried all the bowling games in the store and this one keeps me coming back again and again !
You can't ever truly master it...but you keep getting better and better...so you keep on trying.
The graphics are sensational.....the sounds (pins falling --- animated CHEERS and JEERS) are terrific.
The control is what's so difficult to master...I find I bowl just about as good in person as I do on this game....Normally you can get REALLY good at a Bowling game quickly...not so with this one !
The shuffle board part of the game is excellent too....can't forget that !
One of the best iPhone apps you can buy
By: Dave in Indiana - Jun 9, 2009
I've been waiting for a shuffleboard app that really, truly nails the game. Digital Smoke has achieved it, and it's not only one of the best games for the iPhone -- it's one of the best apps, period. Everything about the application is polished such that it rivals something you might see pop up on Xbox Live Arcade. You can almost "feel" the weight of the pucks as you slide them down the table. The physics are realistic and spectacular, even when the pucks slide off the sides or end of the table. The rookie AI opponent is just perfect at letting you get a good feel for the game without getting walloped; the second AI opponent already provides me with a pretty good challenge (I haven't take the leap of faith to go up against the third opponent yet!) As if the app isn't solid enough, the developers added a bowling mode that's a fun diversion and twist on the shuffleboard formula. While the physics here are generally solid, my only complain is that sometimes pins will be left spinning upright a bit unrealistically. If the developer could tweak the pin behavior in those situations, everything would be spot-on. Overall, this is easily a 5-star quality application. Some may complain that the visuals outside of the table doesn't provide a visual depiction of a bar to go along with the fun audio, but if the lack of those details gives me a solid framerate and console-like graphics, I'm more than happy with the trade-off. Thanks, Digital Smoke, for creating one of the slickest, most enjoyable applications one can buy for the iPhone. Worth every cent.

This is my new favorite iDevice game. It really is two games in one: a traditional shuffleboard game, and a second mode that combines shuffleboard with bowling. Both modes offer several variations, including competition against several CPU opponents. The realism of the bowling pin action is astoundingly good, and the skill and fun factors are high. I've purchased a couple other shuffleboard games, but this one is in a league of its own.
Well, it's about time!!!
By: Coloursound - May 26, 2009
I have tried EVERY shufflboard game for the ipod touch. Nobody had nailed it yet (until now).
The last one I had purchased (looks a bit like this one) was a very pretty shuffleboard game, but the gameplay is off. The developer had gotten feedback in their reviews about this (including my review), but they never expressed any interest in fixing the gameplay...rather, giving tips on how to deal with it.
I purchased 10 pin shuffle (this game!) based only on the fact that Digital Smoke made a phenomonal Solitaire game for the ipod touch, perhaps the best one in the itunes app store.
I trusted this game would be good from just looking at the screen shots.
This game is great. They nailed it. The graphics are awesome, sound very good - but most importantly, the gameplay is right on.
Even the bowling game is incredible.
The pins have REAL PHYSICS (another property that is mysteriously missing from 90% of bowling games on tunes).
The only thing I would like to recommend to digital smoke is to make more venues / Tables.
Give us a goal - something to unlock besides players (which are only represented here by name - the cheapest form of content in existence).
Great game. at $3.99, as I said I would like to see a bit more content (venues), but I am rating this game 5 stars, as I feel someone finally got shuffleboard right on the ipod/iphone.
Thanks a ton Digital Smoke!
Best iPhone game to date
By: The original coffeemonster - 16-Aug-2009
There is a pattern with iPhone games - people rave about them and give them 4 or 5 stars; you download them, only to find that they are mediocre at best, or only enjoyable for about 30 minutes. You find yourself playing the sort of game that you used to play on an early 90s computer, and ask yourself why you are bothering.
This game breaks the mould - it is superb. It is shuffleboard that I love - a game where too much power is as counterproductive as too little.
Unlike some apps, if you press the 'home' button during a game, the next time you open the app it asks you if you want to continue the game or start a new one.
I predict that this game will soon be one of the top paid apps, by word of mouth.

5 stars now. One of the best iPhone games I've downloaded in ages. Would still like a 'play again' option at the end of a game and maybe a 'restart game' option in the pause menu. But these are very minor gripes.
Arrrrrggghhhh! The 'to main menu' button keeps causing the app to close! Apart from that, this app is app-solutely (forgive me) fantastic! It's simple and addictive. The graphics are superb and the pins in bowling mode behave very acurrately. I also now want a shuffleboard table in real life after having been introduced to the game by this app.
Things that would be welcome in an update:
- a shuffleboard practice mode.
- a 'play again' button, rather than having to go back to the menu to play another game.
- fixing that bug that closes the app.
- a p2p mode (which they say is coming anyway).
A few of my suggestions in an update and I'll award that 5th star. This definitely feels like one of those apps I'll keep coming back to. Bravo.
This is great.

I haven't written a review on an app in ages. However. I felt I had to with this. Digital Smoke don't seem to release many iPhone apps. However. When they do. They are of supreme quality. I really like this game. The physics as everyone else states are fantastic. It's great fun to play. Takes a little practise though. But for the low price. I would absolutely recommend this. I will be keeping an eye out for more apps from Digital Smoke. :).

This game is amazing, it has awseome graphics and superb gameplay. The physics seem so real it feels like you're there playing in real life. My wife loved the game so much as well, I had to buy a copy for her, now we can play each head to head other over bluetooth. The game is rock solid and we did not experience any problems at all. I can't wait for the next game from Digital Smoke as I also bought Solitaire City which was a great as well. If only all games on the iPhone were made to this standard
The best physics I've ever seen in an iPhone game
By: SFsnow - Aug 18, 2009
Ten Pin Shuffle looks fantastic - this is exactly what a shuffleboard game should look like, and the quality of the sound production is awesome - just the right level of feedback with a bit of zaniness built in.
The gameplay is excellent, with a small but well-balanced group of computer opponents to beat, as well as multiplayer modes.
Oh, and bowling with a shuffleboard weight? It's way more fun than with a bowling ball!
The new multiplayer gameplay is the icing on the cake - impressively smooth, and adds a massive amount of fun and replayability to an already awesome game.
Great game except...
By: FLsheller - Aug 18, 2009
1. Need option to turn off individual sound effects and just keep puck, pin and lane sounds if desired;
2. Should be able to enter the players' names if 2 people are playing, and also save those names in the scores section
3. I don't want to have to go all the way back to the main menu to bowl a second game. Can't it just say "Bowl again?" or something, and it could default back to whatever setup you just bowled, ie. 1 or 2 players, etc.
Awesome realistic graphics and sounds though! Great work so far, devs!!
10 Pin Shuffle - my favorite
By: Benaaa - Aug 14, 2009
This is the best shuffleboard game I ever played. The controls are intuitive and easy to use and the physics is amazingly realistic. Comparing to other shuffleboard games out there, this is the top of the line. Lots of fun to play, variety of levels and computer opponents, great graphics and sound effects and with the excellent bowling game bonus it’s worth every penny. Digital Smoke really took the time to make it right.
Just upgraded to the latest version, the multiplayer addition is great!
By: RockysHemi - Oct 3, 2009
I just downloaded the new update and have to say that I STILL love this game. I'm likely to wear a path up the middle of my iPod, as much as I play this game! I love the new options, but I would love to see just a couple of new ones. One that would be nice is the ability to change venues. A different background would be nice on occasion, you know? And it was great when the option was provided to turn off the 'Split' animations.....maybe we could extend that option to apply to 'Strike' animations, also? Neither of these are make or break for me....I'll still continue to play.....just something I'd like to see. My high score is 241, I got a maximum of 8 strikes in one game and I even managed to get 7 strikes in a row in another game.....I'm hoping to break 250 soon!
Thanks for the hours of fun!!!!!
WELL!!! WELL.... WELLLLLLLL.....

APP'S IN THE FUTURE. YOUR HAPPY 3-D BOWLER,
By: bhafc87 - 28-Aug-2009
At the time of buying it was £1.19 and I can say it was worth the cost. I certainly think it will become one of my most used apps.
The graphics are great. It makes you feel like you are actually playing a real game.
The game physics are superb, you get a real sense of what throw will do well and won't even before the pucks finish moving.
The sound is ok but I think the crowd sounds could sound a little more inspiring during a good shot, so instead of sounding like two people standing a the side could we not have it sounding like a large crowd?
On that note perhaps we could have the table set in a different environment, perhaps a stadium or hall during a 'world championship' playing for your country?
The possibility to give us more longevity to the game is endless.
The only other thing I would ask for is multiplayer.. Not just peer to peer multiplayer.
If the dev team can implement these things it would be 5* and I would have paid £5
The current price structure is reasonable for what you get,
A note on the bowling aspect: it's not quite the same without a ball to bowl with so it's not a permanent substitute but in the abscence of a decent bowling game on the iPhone this is actually a good tempoarary substitute. However, buy it for shuffleboard with bowling an added extra. Don't buy this game for the bowling.. That would be a waste.
By: deeveeoh - Aug 16, 2009
But I wish that there was a simple "practice" mode where you could just slide the puck over and over and over without actually playing a game, to get used to the physics - which can be very touchy.
Also wish that you didn't actually have to watch the computer take its turn. Sure it adds to authenticity, but like in "shufflepuck" (another game in app store), you can tap the screen when the computer is taking its turn so you can move along to actually playing your turn.
Other than that, impressive!
By: Usskywatch - Aug 11, 2009
Best game ever. Great graphics...fun,fun,fun!!
By: PoisonApple - Aug 11, 2009
Great shuffleboard game!!! The bowling is better than any other bowling game as well! Highly recommend, best game of this type
By: IAMBETTIS - Aug 6, 2009
I know a lot of people say this, but 10 pin shuffle is one of the best games I've bought from the app store. There is variety with the two different game types and both manage to maintain siple yet complex game play. Easy to play, difficult to master with an enjoyable ride in between. Perfect for casual or long-term gameplay. Thanks guys. Keep it up. This is a truly masterful app. :)
By: Vickie1969 - Aug 2, 2009
I just can't put this game down. It is so realistic
