I had a chance to play a bowling arcade game this past week and I figured it would be nice to check it out. Since bowling games have had a surge in popularity as of late, it’s only appropriate to see what the arcade side of the genre has to offer. Unfortunately I cannot find any direct screenshots of the game, so next time I come across this game, I will take some pictures. Here’s Rockin’ Bowl-a-rama!

Rockin’ Bowl-A-Rama provides a fun experience for any player who seeks virtual bowling entertainment. There are four game types to choose from: Regulation, Trick Shot, Blackjack Bowling and Ten-Pin Poker. The different types create appeal for any type of bowler, whether they are seeking a standard game (Regulation), something a little more interesting (Blackjack and Ten-Pin) or for a real challenge (Trick Shot). Each one of the game types can be played by 1-4 players. Blackjack and Ten-Pin turn bowling into a hybrid-poker tournament, for example in Blackjack, the pin count becomes the players blackjack card where you get three sets of ten pins and you need to try and take out 21 pins without busting. It’s not only a challenge but a lot of fun at the same time.
