Normally a new Electronic Arts game would hold my attention span for about six seconds, which is long enough to pour a cup of coffee and curse when I stub my toe. But this new title for the iPod grasps my immediate attention for a few reasons. Sims Bowling features accurate bowling physics and control via the Click Wheel. Plus the graphics don’t look too shabby either.
What’s really cool is the two-player option called “Pass-n-Play”, a unique buzzword that’ll probably help sell a few hundred extra copies. You basically bowl when it’s your turn then pass the iPod to your buddy when it’s his or her turn. A cool feature nonetheless. Sims Bowling is available for $5 from the iTunes Music Store and requires 38MB of space on your iPod.
