Description: We’ve all dealt with pinheads. They are everywhere and you have to be polite to them. I mean, I don’t want to sound like a jerk. I know they mean well…at least most of them. They know not just what pinheads they can be. How nice would it be to be able to throw bowling balls at them. Well, here is your chance! And its legal! You can throw bowling balls at these pinheads all day long. Some of them will even like it. Not only the pinheads at the end of the lane, but also the rest of the pinheads taking up space. As long as you are playing this game, you’ll never have to be polite to any pinhead you see. That is our promise to you.

Pinheads Bowling VR is a fun fun fun new way to play the classic game of bowling with animated pins that react as you bowl. The game is built on a hyper-realistic physics simulation, so whether you like to put spin on the ball and curve it in for a strike or throw straight down the lane, you will feel like you are bowling at a real bowling alley. That is…if real bowling alleys were filled with living bowling pins. Watch the bowling pins get slammed by the ball and then watch them enjoy their off-hours by unlocking new activities for them as you play the game.

Review: Maybe I am just a sucker for a bowling game, but I enjoyed playing Pinheads Bowling VR. I especially loved the animated bowl pins as they taught you and generally mess about while you take your shot. But there is also a LOT to hate about this game, the first one being the asking price. £8.99 is way too much for this game and I would wait until it was a quid or less before making a purchase and the other big problem is that it requires a lot of playroom. There is no teleporting around here, you either have the room to grab and throw the balls or you don’t play. A good idea for a bowling game sadly let to rot like so many others.
