I originally owned a black and white video game system called RCS studio II. It had few games but did have bowling. It was just a bunch of small blocks for pin and slightly larger block for a ball. Just loved the ugly thing. So needless to say when I finally got my hands on this as a kid it was mildly mind blowing! The ball has some control and the bowler does a little dance, with addictive sound effects, if you don't suck and actually pick up a strike or spare.
