Bocce-Ball is a new, free iOS application that allows users to play a game of bocce against the iPhone, or against a friend (on the same iOS device). Currently, Bocce-Ball is ad supported, and features limited Game Center integration (leaderboards and achievements). Players launch the bocce ball down a patch of turf with a "flick" of their finger, which is a nice feature. Furthermore, you can play a game of bocce on your iPhone across six different locations, including "The Beach, Central Park, Stonehenge, the White House, and even the Pyramids of Egypt." Bocce-Ball comes with support for multitasking under iOS 4, users can take a call mid game, then easily return to the application where they left off. However, as of this moment the game does not support the Retina display, nor does it feature an online multiplayer mode via Game Center, which would be nice. Hopefully, these features will come in a future update. Bocce-Ball is available in the App Store now. Check it out, and let us know your thoughts in the comments.
