"You saved the Christ! We've saved some power-ups for you!"
You'd be forgiven for thinking that the above quote might appear in one of those church-endorsed religious edutainment games. You know the ones.
In fact, that quote is pulled from a bowling game. A very strange bowling game, granted, but a bowling game nonetheless.
What's more, once you come to terms with its cataclysmic plot, bizarre alien antagonist, and tourist trap locations, it's actually a rather enjoyable bowling game. Confused? You should be.
Finger Bowling 2 is effectively one studio's attempt to fuse the narrative of a Roland Emmerich movie with the simple pleasure that comes from knocking things over with a heavy ball.
Finger Bowling 2 is an oddball offering in every conceivable way, yet its solid mechanics and unpolished charm are a strangely effective combination
