Video Game History: Elf Bowling 1 & 2 (Nintendo DS)

Back in the early days of the Nintendo DS, Elf Bowling 1 & 2 was released. I had no idea the series had a decent amount of popularity on PC. However that wasn’t enough to convince me to get this strange little Christmas game.

The game is basically about Santa Claus taking revenge on the striking elves at the north pole. How? By striking them down in bowling. Get it? Yeah, it’s not funny.

One of the reasons why it had a faithful following on PC was because it wasn’t posed as a legitimate game. Just a fun little side-project of sorts. It was no challenger to say Half-Life. However its crude graphics, bare-bones game-play, terrible music, and weak content was an insult as a DS game.

To make matter worse they also made a GBA version too. Both were universally panned by critics and gamers alike.
