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.
