My face when I saw TGT: Should have been a soft release.

You could have bowled me over as well.
At least it isn't a strategy guide

Hey, we had the same face....
I tried it and honestly did not care for it. Almost like a marble shooter, which I like, but this one is repetitive and somewhat boring

Over here in the UK it was referred to as skittles but nowadays it's called ten pin bowling. I have probably played skittles about 6/7 times in my life but found it incredibly boring because when I threw the ball and knocked all of them down, my opponents, i.e. my children and my good friends hated me for it so I gave up. There was no challenge at all.

If you have a good eye you do not need to waste your time on skittles especially when it alienates you from your children and your friends.

I tried the demo and this just isn't for me. I could not keep up with the pins marching down the alley towards the line and kept having to restart the game. After enough times of that, I gave up.

It's a little bit Space Invaders from the 80's and a lot of Zuma. I played through the first 8 levels on the demo. As with any purely arcade game, it starts out simple but each level added one new item or variation so each level was ramped up a bit. A level or two were timed where others had limited shots. Primitive graphics aside, if each of 90+ levels adds a new element this could be a great game for those who enjoy frantic arcade games...a rarity here on BFG. Myself, I'm more of a solitaire type where I can take my time.

I went to look at the game reviews on the main page and can't find them. Has that option been removed?

Ok, thanks. I'll need to contact Big Fish and try to find out why I can no longer see the reviews or the number of stars. It just disappeared from my main page view.

They're there. There is one 5 star, four 2s and two 1 star reviews.
