Developer Skyworks has brought the classic arcade game Skeeball to the Iphone and Ipod Touch. Arcade Bowling has a simple goal. You have nine balls to roll up the ramp and into the holes, trying to set the highest score possible.
The controls are effective and quite responsive. You simply flick your finger up the ramp to launch the ball, and then tilt the phone to influence the balls direction while it's in the air.
The visuals are reminiscent of the original Skeeball game and combined with the sounds, this gives you the full arcade experience that we all know and love. Unfortunately you can't play music on your Ipod during gameplay. However there are two game modes, as well as online leader boards that allow you to compare your skills with the rest of the world.
This game should appeal to anyone who is a fan of classic arcade games.
