This is a conversion add-on for Capcom Bowling. In addition to new sounds and graphics, the number of possible players has been increased to five and there are now three game mode choices:
  • Bowl-O-Rama (a.k.a. Regulation Bowling): This is your standard bowling game following standard scoring.
  • Flash-O-Matic: A flashing score value moves back and forth, across the alley. When the players ball hits the first pin, the score locks. If the played bowled a strike, they gets the full amount of the score. If they did not bowl a strike but, in the second throw, do get a spare, they get half the score value. If no strike or spare, they get one point for each pin they knocked down.
  • Black Jack: Players get three throws to try to knock down twenty-one pins with each pin counting as one point. After each throw, the full rack of pins is set back up. All points are thrown into a single kitty and, whichever player gets closest to twenty-one without going over, wins the pot. If a player gets exactly twenty-one, they win double the pot. A single pin knocked down in a throw counts as an ace, for one or eleven points, depending on what the player needs. In the event of a tie, both players win. If a player is not the closest to twenty-one or goes over (bust), no points are awarded.
