Commodore 64This game has to be the best thing to come out of America since Leaderboard was released. If you have got the right computer then rush out and get a copy of it quick.
Commodore 64If I'd played as many real games of bowling as I've played 10th Frame, my bowling arm would now be 6ft long. And I didn't even have to hire a pair of sweaty bowling shoes and use a leaky ballpoint pen.
Commodore 64Wer ein gutes Computer-Bowling sucht, erhält mit 10th Frame eine tolle Simulation dieses Freizeit-Sports. Die Klasse von Leader Board erreicht es aber nicht ganz.
ZX Spectrum10th Frame requires a lot of skill and a pretty good simulation, though I found it frustrating waiting for the pins to reset after each game. It's a shame really that the packaging looks so dull and dated 'cos there's a really good game in there trying to get out.
Commodore 64Le jeu est intéressant, suffisamment réaliste dans l'animation du joueur et les bruitages pour motiver le joueur. L'ambiance reste froide cependant, notamment en ce qui concerne le graphisme de l'écran de jeu.
ZX SpectrumBowling game with no outstanding features. Even the background colour is jaded. But if bowling's your game...
ZX SpectrumI am disappointed with Tenth Frame, it should have been so good. It loses out in gameplay because it simply isn't real enough - the pins behave in a totally unauthentic manner, so you have to learn the "physics" of the game before you can begin to succeed. Having said that, if you discover the correct method, it is possible to obtain a maximum score without too much practise. If you're a bowling freak this may appeal to you - if not, I wouldn't waster your readies.
ZX SpectrumTen-pin bowling sounds an unlikely sport to be represented by computer, and unfortunately Tenth Frame proves it to be unsuitable - the game just fails to impress. For fans only, even at £2.99. Just far too easy!
ZX SpectrumThe challenge, for all the fine programming, is all but non-existent, and the game is pretty dull. We gave it seven first time around (being generous, I think), but if you're interested in bowling, I'd say you were better off trying the real thing.
