downhillbowling1Being from New Jersey, there’s something about bowling that stirs the soul. The sights, the smells, the horrifically colored shoes… they all appeal to he suburban part of my heart.

eyevseye1To clarify, I’m no designer; I don’t have an eye for décor or what not; and to be honest when I heard that this game was “one in a series of design-oriented games…”, it didn’t really pump up my enthusiasm towards it. However, given that OSX iPhone platform had given rise to a new generation of applications, my curiosity got the better of me to take a look.
