New Atari 2600 Homebrew - Pro Bowling
« on: September 21, 2019, 18:00:12 PM »
AA member has started working on a new game for the Atari 2600 called Pro Bowling.  This is the second Pro game he makes for the system (the first war Pro Golf).  I say this is long overdue for the 2600 as it never got a RealSports Bowling game or any other updated bowling title.  True that the original game is fun play but the console needed something with more sophistication.  The game is still early in development but it looks pretty nice for the system.

The latest version lets you choose between a male or female character and has more functionality added.  Worth checking out.

Looks light years ahead of the 1979 game, which was fun in its own way too.
