Description

RocketBowl is a bowling game with a futuristic twist. It's the 1958 Kalamazoo World's Fair, and it's premiere for the new sport Rocket Bowling. Like in real bowling your objective is to knock down all the pins. But RocketBowl is different in many ways. It's played in a big arena that almost looks like a mini golf courses and it has both hills and curves and different obstacles. You can roll the ball into another frame and there score, making it possible to take out pins in two frames at a shot. Balls are not quite normal either, in RocketBowl the balls are equipped with jets and you have several different balls that you can buy when you have earned enough money. You earn money when you win tournaments or if you hit special dollar bins. The game contains 7 courses and 20 bowling balls.
