10th Frame Bowling

Review 1:

Probably the best bowling game of the 1980s, 10th Frame Bowling is a fun bowling game for up to 8 players. Two gameplay modes are available: Open Bowling (a single match) or League Bowling (the complete league). League Bowling is where you compete in teams, with 4 members each.

Although the game looks quite primitive in CGA color, the graphics are crisp and the animations believably smooth. The interface is intuitive: similar to the common "golf meter" in golf games, you use the left and right arrow keys to choose the direction for the ball, and press the spacebar at the right moment to throw it. Simple, but flawlessly executed. If you enjoy bowling games, 10th Frame Bowling is a true pioneer in the genre you must have in your collection. If you are not a bowling fan, this may very well be the game that sparks your interest in the sport. Timelessly enduring and playable - a must-have.

Review 2:

10th Frame Bowling is quite a good game. It has only EGA colour and uses the occasional pc speaker beep. You can play either League Bowling or Open Bowling. In League Bowling you can have 2 or more teams with 4 people on each team, this would be good if you want a bit of multiplayer action with your mates. Open Bowling is just for practice or when you want a friendly match with up to 10 people. The controls are quite simple using the left and right keys to move where you want the the ball to go and the space bar to increase power and hook. This game ran fine out of Windows 98 but I wouldn't recommend alt-tabbing out of game unless you want a black screen of death.

Review 3:

You can either play the Open Bowling or League Bowling. If you want to practice, you should play the Open Bowling. And if you want to play tournament, you have to play the League Bowling, where you can have multiple teams with 4 people on each one.

The game is in EGA-color only and the sound is quite bad as the game uses the pc speaker. The gameplay is good and the controls are easy to use: left and right to decide where the ball has to go and the spacebar to throw it away.
