Pretty cool actually. Here is some constructive criticisim IMHO

1. It is a little slow, just a tad.... (dual 1ghz, 1.5 gig ram)

2. The frequency of the background bowling sounds is actually on the verge of being annoying. I know you are probably going for a 'busy' bowling alley feel, but, you can hear the loop....maybe a little more pausing in between sounds.

3. If you want people to see some of your cool game options (follow ball down lane, etc) then I would have them default to 'ON'. I didn't discover them for about 20 mins

4. full screen should be defaulted

Other then those few things, I think its cool. Nice 3d graphics, good use of the hook, etc.
