Flintstones Bedrock Bowling Preview
Without a doubt one of the world's most recognized cartoon family, The Flintstones are receiving yet another game this time from Southpeak and Adrenalin (with no "e"). Instead of a cliché adventure title, The Flintstones will be about bowling. It is very far of from its release date, which is scheduled to be released this October 24. Southpeak claims that Bedrock Bowling is like no other bowling game you have ever played, trust me they have proof to back it up and we have the screens to show you. Take a look at an early preview of Bedrock Bowling.
This really seems to be one of the PS' more colorful and cheery titles, Adrenalin will make a visual statement with Bedrock Bowling. They will try to re-create many of Bedrock's famous areas, and at the current screens we have to show, the job that is being done looks great. Character animation should be crisp and smooth the game's current stage is already look pretty good, lets just hope the developer can do more with the PS. The opening movie will be a CG which will replicate the cartoons intro, yabba dabba doo!
This will definitely be like no other bowling title you have played. The trick to the game is that you don't bowl the ball, instead you are the ball --what the?--. You get a launch, as you progress through colorful Bedrock environments avoiding obstacles, your goal is to guide the bowling ball through all of a certain stages challenges while collecting gems and awaiting the encounter with pins that come at the end. It may sound like a long operation but it will most likely be done in about 30 seconds. Southpeak has said that the game will be four players, but they haven't commented on whether it will be round robin style or 4 way split screen, knowing the PS' disabilities it will most likely be a round robin event. Characters such as Fred, Barney, Wilma, Betty, Bam-Bam, Pebbles and Gazoo will make their appearance in Bedrock Bowling.
Bedrock Bowling is on schedule to be released on October 24, 2000. It may see a short delay but nothing is for sure, expect the game to be released before the holiday. Adrenalin's twist on bowling looks great so far, Flintstones Bedrock Bowling will be one of the more unique titles this year.
