Arcade Bowling (DSiWare)

Game Profile

From Skyworks comes another addictively classic game, Arcade Bowling.

It was designed by video game legend David Crane, one of the original founders of Activision and one of the most critically acclaimed game designers of all time. In the tradition of everyone's favorite Boardwalk bowling game, use your stylus and steady aim to flick "laser" balls down the alley and up the ramp into the scoring holes. The farther away the scoring hole is, the more points you'll get. Arcade Bowling features three futuristic sound tracks, state-of-the-art 3-D graphics and two addictive game modes, Classic and Progressive. In Classic Mode, roll up to nine balls to score as many points as you can. In Progressive Mode, enjoy multiple levels of game play with increasing score plateaus and bonus targets.

I should have picked that up by reading the description but hadn't. I planned on picking it up this evening since the price point was so low but I'll have to see a review to consider a skee-ball game, even at that cost.

You should consider changing the genre of this game. I don't think I'd rank skee-ball as a sport.

This game looks and sounds awesome. I guess the game is short but think about it this way. You spend a quarter playing the game, in the arcade with 1 mode but with this you can save up your gas, by not going to the arcade, more than 1 mode and your most likely going to be in the high scores section.
