Description

Leader Board authors Bruce and Roger Carver tried their hand at tenpin bowling, in one of the game's earliest recreations. The process of bowling the ball involves timing a succession of clicks to set the right angle, speed and curve, similarly to Leaderboard's system. Three skill levels are provided - Kids level sets the speed and hook automatically, while Amateur has more margin for error with hook/slice than professional. The game is played from a plan view, with four other (empty) lanes visible. Single matches or a league structure can be played.

Trivia

Boss key

In the DOS version, the boss key is 'F1' and will show a made-up static spreadsheet using ASCII characters only. Pressing 'F1' again will exit this screen and put you back into the game.
