    TRIVIA
    Released in August 1988, Capcom Bowling was developed by Incredible Technologies, Inc.

    This game was originally supposed to be titled 'Beer Frame Bowling'.

    Scott Spencer holds the official record for this game with a perfect score of 300 points on November 18, 2008.

    TIPS AND TRICKS
    • Hint 1: To get a strike most of the time, position the ball between the 3rd and 4th dot behind the foul line. Also, move the ball closer to the foul line, but do NOT cross it. The closer you move the ball to the foul line, the more you may need to nudge your ball a little to the left. This is because when the ball travels slow enough on the lane, it will hook to the right.
    • Hint 2: If the ball is over the line when you position your ball, and you have not thrown it, you can move it back behind the line with no foul (which is necessary if over half of the ball is across the line...a foul will be called if you try throwing it from that position).
