Oh Nintendo, what ideas won't you recycle?
The game is an increasingly rare Virtual Boy title from 1996. It was one of the few "Poster Child" games, a flagship title that was seen in practically every ad there ever was for the Virtual Boy.
It's about as straight forward as bowling gets, with about as much customization available as bowling in Wii Sports. You enter your players' name, choose a male or female avatar, set the weight of your ball, and choose song A, B, or C (much like Tetris for the Game Boy).
once you appear on the lane, you move your character's horizontal position, choose the level of spin on your ball, and the power - then sit back and watch. Animations happen for every ball you toss down the lane, but special animations and sounds play for events such as spares, strikes, doubles, etc...
When the game is over, you see your score, and start over. No AI players to play against, just the leaderboard saved in the game. It's very straight forward, but is still a fun way to kill time. Most of it's "collectability" comes from the fact that it is instantly recognized as one of the most iconic Virtual Boy games, but if you're actually looking for a fun BOWLING experience, you should probably pick up Nintendo's more popular Wii!Read full review
