Neo Geo League Bowling: Introduction and Background
While it may come as a surprise to most people, the concept of bowling can be traced back to the Ancient Egypt and Roman Empire times when stones were tossed towards other stone objects. Over the centuries, this concept developed into what is now one of the most popular sports to be played on Earth i.e. bowling. Bowling can further be categorized into types; indoor bowling and outdoor bowling. Indoor bowling involves knocking down pins by throwing bowling balls down a wooden lane. Outdoor bowling involves getting the ball as close as possible to the target.
With such a significant increase in the popularity of this sport, it was only a matter of time when a game on it was going to be launched. Thus, the first arcade game that really put an emphasis on bowling was launched in the form of Neo Geo League Bowling. Released by SNK in 1991, Neo Geo League Bowling is an arcade game that was designed and developed for the Neo Geo console and the arcade systems.
