Game selections include: individual, practice, team and league style games. Players begin by selecting their bowler from one of the fully digitized male and female characters available. Adjustments can be made to whether they are left or right handed, the colour of clothes and skill level (beginner, intermediate or pro). The main game screen shows the bowler on the approach and uses several smaller windows to give a fine tune control over aiming, power and spin control. As with many bowling games, a close-up of the ball striking the pins is shown.

For the more experienced player, you can dive right in and start playing on your own, but Omar is only a mouse click away should you need some advice at any point in the game.

Links LS 1998 Edition is the first game in the Links series to run in native Windows 95 mode. "Look ahead" rendering sees the game predict where your next shot will be from, reducing redraw times. There are two new offline tournaments for a total of six, and an internet play mode. Perhaps in response to Tiger Woods' success at the time, a black-skinned golfer is added to this version. You now view other golfers on the main play screen, and the action is tracked by 8 smart cameras. New visual enhancements include water reflections, waving flags, blimps, balloons, airplanes and environmental haze and fog.
The standard 3-click swing is still used in this version, as well as the fine-tune adjustments for swing style, draw/fade, chip, lob, bump & run and of course, load up that driver and let 'er rip. There are now 6 modes of play including Scramble, Alternate Shot, Match Play, Best Ball, Skins and Stroke.

The Hustle: Detroit Streets takes you through the pool halls and clubs of Detroit, as you prove yourself against the masters of the game. Take on the role of either Jack Stone or Kat Hudson as they make their way to the top of the pool circuit through two different game modes. Players hone their pool skills in their quest for respect and cash, alone or in tough AI competition.
Once you've mastered the AI, you can hook up your network adapter and play against up to 9 friends, or take it online and challenge players around the world.

Although Sierra tried its hand (no pun intended) at other card games, this is their first foray into the world of poker. The game offers all the excitement of a real poker game mixed with Sierra's unique brand of humour.
The game offers a total of 20 variations on popular poker games including: Texas Hold 'Em, Omaha, Omaha Hi/Lo, High Chicago, Cincinnati, Baseball, 5 Card Stud, 7 Card Stud, 7 Card Stud Hi/Lo, Jacks or Better, Criss Cross, Dealers Choice, 5 Card Draw and 5 Card Draw Lo-ball.
In single-player offline mode, you can select up to 7 opponents to play against, each with their own personality, playing style and skill level. The animated AI characters are well done and if you study them carefully, you can figure out each player's tell, which gives away the fact that they have a good hand. The Attitude Meter adjusts the speed of the game; setting it higher results in more animation and comments from the AI players, whereas setting it lower, keeps them quiet and offers a faster pace game. You start with a bankroll of $1,000 in case with another $9,000 in your bank account which you can access via an ATM (it also has a personality of it's own).
Once you've mastered the game (or become tired of the AI players), check out the on-line play mode and see how your skills match up with real players from around the world.
In this sequel to Golf Resort Tycoon you take on the challenge of designing your own resort. You must design and build your golf course and all the amenities that make a perfect resort. Make sure your greens keepers are properly maintaining the course and watch out for those pesky gophers.
This new version resolves many of the bugs and annoyances that hampered the original game and includes a time accelerator to speed things up. The ability to grab a set of clubs and actually play the couse you design has also been added.
In design mode, the game offers all the building tools you'd expect for modifying the landscape, raising/lowering terrain, creating ponds, lakes and other water hazzards, adding sand bunkers, trees, structures, buildings and various famous landmarks.
In 3D play mode, the game offers a 1st-person perspective typical of most golf games and uses a standard 3-click control to determine distance, accuracy and power. You can customize the golfer you play with, choose to play alone or against an assortment of computer controlled players with varying skill sets. You must select the appropriate club for the current shot, so a little golf knowledge will come in handy.
If you're looking for a true golf sim, this isn't your game, but if you want to take a break from the challenge of the game's main focus, that being to build the ultimate golf resort, and have a little fun, the 3D play mode is acceptable.
Grab your clubs and head for the first tee. This golf sim recreates the world-famous Hawaiian Waialae Golf Course, noted for lots of bunkers and very fast greens. You can choose your golfer, assign him a caddy, pick your set of clubs and adjust the power, putting, technical, recovery, and wind game stats to suit your personal preference. The game offers a practice training mode, a tournament mode, and the ability to challenge your friends in a stroke match. Oddly, this game was not sanctioned by the PGA and assumes that the golfer is always male.
In Victory, use your Coleco Roller Controller to rotate your ship as the space around you scrolls by, smack your fire button to take out anything that moves and snag a power-up or two along the way to aid in your quest. Similar in style to Asteroids, but with a moving background.
Slither is similar in nature to the hit arcade game Centipede by Atari. You control your snake as it slither's around the screen. Where this game differs greatly from Centipede is that you can shoot in 4 different directions at the same time to take out the baddies trying to hunt you down. The bad snakes hunting you down will appear from various angles on the screen, often several at a time. The game was bundled with Coleco's Roller Controller and can't be played without it.
Another game in the Super Action series that makes use of Coleco's Super Action Controllers. Play against the computer or go head-to-head with a friend over 4 quarters of football action. Step back and throw the long bomb to your wide receiver dancing in the end zone, kick the field goal, or lay down a bone-crunching tackle as you control one of 3 offensive or 3 defensive players. What victory dance will you do as you dive across the goal line in the final seconds of the game?
Coleco's foray into the boxing realm is based on the 1982 film Rocky III. Players have the option of playing as either Rocky Balboa or Clubber Lang as one battles the opponent in 10 rounds of boxing action.
The game utilizes Coleco's Super Action Controller letting players use the buttons to throw various punches and blocks, while using the joystick to move around the ring. The computer opponent can be set at 4 different skill levels, or play head-to-head with a second player. The winner of a match does a victory strut to Eye Of The Tiger, the theme song from the movie.
Feeling Lucky? Pull up a chair and play a few hands of Blackjack or Poker. Minimum bet is $1 and maximum is $499 at the BlackJack table, whereas over on the 5-Card Stud Poker table the sky is the limit. Up to 4 people can play simultaneously, or if you're a little shy you can always go one-on-one with the dealer. Speaking of which, don't forget to give Max, your dealer, a nice tip, or you never know what kind of cards he'll deal out in your next hand.
Zoom! is an arcade style puzzle game. Your character Zoomer (a Pacman lookalike with arms & legs) must trace the outline of the squares on the game board to light them up. Points are awarded when full squares are formed, although the game also displays how many lines must still be completed. You proceed to the next level when all the squares have been lit up. There are various monsters that will try to hunt you down - contact with these costs you energy and eventually a life. There are also a number of power-ups that will aid your quest - quick filling of tiles surrounding the bonus piece, a level skip and bonus points, for example.
Play alone or challenge up to 3 of your friends in this Rock Trivia game. The game screen is laid out much like a Jeopardy board and players take turns at clicking on a square to reveal a multiple choice question. Get it right and you gain points, get it wrong and it's the next players turn. The game ends when at least 3 of the 4 questions in each category have been answered correctly. The questions revolve around Rock music and cover the 1950's-1980's. He who finishes with the most points wins.
Fright Night is based on the 1985 Columbia Pictures movie of the same name. You play vampire Jerry Dandridge in this arcade-style action game.

Once you've drained the blood of all your victims, you can proceed to the next level. Keep an eye out for the unhealthy as they will drain your lifeforce; too much bad blood and you're a dead vampire. You can run back to your coffin if you're low on health to regenerate, as well, you must be back in your coffin before the sun comes up, or you're a toasty vampire.

You're the president of the Titanic Salvage Company and it's your job to recover any artifacts you can find from the wreck of the H.M.S. Titanic and ultimately raise the ship to the surface.
The game combines both above and below water aspects. Above the water, you must manage the company, press conferences and finances. Below the water, you explore the Titanic and her many secrets by navigating T.S.1 (your underwater robot) through a maze-like environment while trying to find a way to raise the ship to the surface. You must find eight flotation bags in order to raise the vessel.
Along the way, you'll find several hidden items that combine to create yet another item, many of which are required to open locked doors, safes and other hidden compartments.
