Dynamite Bowl is a bowling game for the NES where you can choose between five different players and 30 different lanes. The game is played and scored just like real bowling.

Game A

An alley from the game.

In Game A, each frame provides you with two chances to knock down all ten pins, and the game is scored like traditional bowling. If you knock down 4 pins on your first attempt and 2 more on the second, you would get a score of 6 for that frame.

If you knock all pins down in one go (strike), the score will be reflected on a future occasion with the next two balls as bonus. For example, if you hit a strike on the first frame and a four and two on the second frame, it would be a score of 22:

  • Score for frame 1: 10 + 4 + 2 = 16
  • Score for frame 2': 4 + 2 = 6
  • Total score: frame 1 + frame 2 = 16 + 6 = 22

The score of a strike is not recorded straight away and instead marked as an X. Hitting three strikes in a row (turkey) would give the first frame 30 points.

Hitting a spare, by knocking down the remaining pins with the second chance, results in a bonus of the next ball. For example, hitting a spare followed by a four and two means a score of 20:

  • Score for frame 1: 10 + 4 = 14
  • Score for frame 2: 4 + 2 = 6
  • Total score: frame 1 + frame 2 = 14 + 6 = 20

The final (10th) frame is slightly different. You get a bonus ball if you have managed to get a strike or spare in the first two attempts, thus a third chance to score another strike or spare. The final frame's maximum score can therefore be 30 points as well, and if there are only strikes in all 10 frames is achieved a total of 300.

Game B

The scoreboard.

The mechanics are the same in Game B, but the scoring has changed. Once you have hit a strike, hitting any amount of pins will result in a score. From then onwards, a strike is 55 points and you need one to start the scoring. It is 55 points because each pin scores its value on the board. In other words pin No. 10 is worth 10 points, 9 is worth 9 points and so on. For example if you knock down pin number 5, 6 and 7 the score will be 18.

Your aim is to get a score as high as possible.
