This is a highly addictive game for a group of friends who can compete on equal terms - the computer keeping track of the score. If you have any spare cash buy this one, it will bowl you over.

10th 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.

Bowling game with no outstanding features. Even the background colour is jaded. But if bowling's your game...

I 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.
Crash! (Nov, 1988)
Ten-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!
Your Sinclair (Jan, 1989)
The 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.

Die Grafik hat etwas gelitten, und auch die Technik ist nicht so fein wie z.B. beim Atari ST Trotzdem: Das Game ist zu empfehlen.
