COLLECTING INFO
Another one of the Ralph Baer sports ranges, reasonably easy to
collect a few variations to this game, Jopac released an
enhanced version of this game that was never released by
Philips under the + label.

Many variations exist of this game as you can see below,
however we are yet to confirm the existence of a SIERA
variation, again it is more than likely out there. but no one
seems to have it, and I am yet to find any scans or pictures.
Released 1978 By Magnavox 1980 By Philips
PLAYING INFO
Tenpin Bowling and basketball, where did they pluck that
combination from, one of the few sports Videopacs I have
played, albeit briefly, both games stood out in their averageness.
TRIVIA
In this cartridge you get a tolerable game and a nice
two player game. In bowling, you must press the
action button at the right time to send a horizontal
moving ball down the alley. Then as it is travelling,
you can flip the joystick right of left so send the ball on
a curve. That's it. Simply, eh There are two main
problems: one is a problem and the other is a glitch I
think. The first problem is I cannot get a strike to
save my life. Maybe that's just me. The second
problem is that even though the ball goes over one of
the dots, it does not disappear! I've had a chance to
pick up many a spare, but because of this problem, I
didn't.

Up to 4 rotating players can join the fun in either
Regular mode or Tournament mode, which just makes
the ball move faster. Not the ultimate party game, but
if you have some nostalgic friends, then break this
puppy out and relive those bowling moments.
