Well, bowling is probably not one of those sports that cry for a computer conversion, but King Pin is actually a very nice game. It's in the style of Access Software's oldie 10th Frame Bowling, but with great graphics and cool sound effects. Up to 6 players, any of whom can be human, can join in a quick game or a tournament. The interface is quite innovative for a bowling game: a power gauge similar to golf games is used to lock in the speed and direction. With smooth animations, intuitive controls, and all-around good atmosphere, King Pin is one of the best bowling simulations ever. Fun!
