Bowling games can be awesome. Crazy-golf games can also be superb. So it’s not too difficult to see the thinking behind RocketBowl, an XBLA title that combines knocking down pins with wacky courses, plus some highpowered rocket boosters thrown in.

There are two ways to play: either use your three shots carefully in a bid to take out the pins, or go for a wild-card shot that is less likely to come off but will garner big points if it does. Fun for a while, RocketBowl gets stale fast and drags by the end of its 10 courses.
