Cheesey-Campy arcade bowling game, controls well though a bit too much control over the ball. Each game is won by proper use of power ups and hazards. Would be better if it could be controlled like Wii Sports Bowling.

Overally pretty cute, not bad at 90% off or less. Unless your dying for a bowling game.

not worth the 9.99$ they're asking, but i got it on sale for about a buck and it was totally worth it. not a serious/realistic bowling game obviously, with the power ups that help you or hurt the opponent and ov course zombies from space...
i did get a few good hours out of it, and that's about all i'm asking for from a 1 dollar game.

So, this is a somewhat challenging game actually. Basically, a meteor lands in a cemetary and is the impetus for the dead rising from the grave. The only way to defeat them? Bowling, Obviously....sheesh. :)

Anyway, you basically bowl against a zombie, and all the pins are zombies. There are buffs you can gather and use (which include large balls, rockets, plunger guns, etc...), and also penalties you can pick up and use against your zmbie competitor. Of course, it also gets the same opportunities to use buffs and hit you with penalties. They include icy lanes, narrow lanes, obstacles, and so on.

Your goal? To win each match and move on the the next lane. You get a day and night for each lane, so you will bowl each twice. If you lose, you have to try again until you win.

You can adjust the position of release as well as the ball speed before/as you throw.

That is pretty much it. Although this probably doesnt sound all that impressive, the game is actually a lot of fun. I cant imagine a person playing it and deciding they didnt like it. It's just cute, good casual bowling. Also fit for all ages.

7/10

Simple-minded fun to the max. Chances to win mostly depend on power-ups you get. Getting all the achievements is another fun side, since there is pretty much no story, although completing the free mode might be a ♥♥♥♥♥. This could really benefit from having an online multiplayer mode.
