    This looks like it should be fun.
    I hope it's better than a cell-phone bowling game!

    Judging by the screenshot the alley seems like it's at least 10 miles long... lol. But, I'm going to see if it's worth playing through, unlockables and stuff etc.

    Does anyone know of that bolwing game for the PC? You throw the ball and you have to guide it around a course of obstacles untill you reach the pins... It was quite fun, but I can't remember it's name. :-|

    ^ not sure if it's the game you are talking about

    but we have astro bowl here at the arcades, and it sounds exactly like that pc game you described

    Astro ball, it sounds sort of familliar... Do you start in like a "Portal" in which you rotate around and select an entrance? Entrances include Arcade mode, Legends mode and some other sort of modes...lol. ;-)

    But yeah, it could quite possibly be. Have you got any screenshots of it?

    Game's not too bad, pretty bland graphics and I don't really enjoy the gameplay so far. The way you bowl is similar to mario golf, except it's not very fun. Just aim where you want the bowling ball to go, and press a twice within the two white lines. (the bar to the left) The closer you are to the lines the straighter and faster your ball is going to roll.

    There are four different locations to play on and quite a few characters to choose from. Good features are that you can play up to four players without two gba's and the pictures of character's expressions are an added bonus.

    2/5

    Downloaded, Played, Reviewed:

    Gameplay: the same as above. you play bowling in a kinda simplistic way. you can either play practise (which i recommand for the beginning) or tournament. but this is the most boring i've seen ever. you just go through all 4 locations and play 3 CPU guys. somehow you win or not but there's nothing fancy about it.
    Graphics: reminds me of one-piece-baseball somehow. crazy characters playing it out having some different images, that's all. graphics could definitly be better in this one.
    Music: nothing to worry about. it's fiddeling in the background and will not disturb much. it won't attract you much neither though.
    Controls: first you select the point ot shot with the blue arrow. if you don't get the arrow where you want it press B to retry (which makes it just tooooo easy). once this is like you want select the power. the only usefull point to stop is at the top white line. if you go above you foul. just press B again to hit your power until it matches (again, tooooo easy). then select the spin. if you stop at the upper line it spins a lot, if you stop in the small area below the lower white line it goes straight. if you miss have fun [​IMG].
    like stated it's just too easy to score strikes like this. just shot straigth ahead, full strength, straight shot and bang... unless you are kinda unlucky you get your strike. got a 300 game like this (yawn).
    VBA: the speed up button will help you a lot. you can't skip the CPU playing which is kinda annoying. but with speed button you can get past it quickly. also save states can be nice, in the case you missed a shot badly or you wanna try to get a 300 point game just for fun. otherwise no issues here.

    Overall: with sports games i like reviewing and i hoped this one is good. it's mediocre. just don't expect too much from it. although not really a blast you can try it out for a break. it's something different than YAJG (yet another japanese game).

    Score: [​IMG]

    well.... i've written how easy it is to get a 300. if you know real bowling it's not that tricky. for the others just do the plain hit strike... kinda lame but works fair well [​IMG]

    Personally, I prefer the bowling mini-game in Super Monkey Ball Jr. It supports multiplayer as well.

    It's a very funny game to pass time like a certain One Piece Goin Baseball. [​IMG]
