This game works with: Basilisk II,

Eisenhower was in the Oval Office. Hot Rods and Drive Ins were the sign of the times and bowling was America's favorite pastime.

Alley 19 Bowling takes you back to those times for the ultimate 10-pin challenge.

Alley 19 has successfully replicated the bowling experience with its unique mouse-controlled throwing action. Best of all, Alley 19 combines all the fun and competition of real bowling with an original 50's soundtrack.

Not only is Alley 19 the most entertaining bowling program on any platform, but it uses a unique mouse-driven rolling action creating a wonderful ease of use and realistic scoring.

Ed Brayman, lead developer, has made a simple and natural way to recreate bowling for the computer using nothing but mouse control. From start to finish the entire game can be easily played without using a single keystroke. Because the mouse placement is never perfectly consistent from one frame to the next, scores mimic real-life averages very closely. This provides almost limitless challenge because a 300 game (as in real life) is almost unattainable.

Combine this with a very light hearted theme and special effects and Alley 19 becomes the entertainment sports hit of the year. Alley 19 uses a authentic 50's theme and soundtrack (the soundtrack is playable on your stereo) recreating everything from a '57 Chevy outside the lanes down to the hairstyles and clothing on the bowlers themselves. Jabbing comments from the gallery and special animations for milestone scores give the finishing touch and promise to keep you laughing while you spend an afternoon knocking down pins.

I found and uploaded this "demo" version that was made way late in the year 2000 by group named "Masque Publishing". They're trying to sell Alley 19 to "new PowerMacs, iMacs, iBooks and G4" users of "MacOS X classic mode" according to their readme. Their yr 2000 files optimistically declare "(c)1996-2002" even tho written in 2000.

On the menu, press and hold the mouse pointer over the pay-phone (repeatedly), it's nostalgic.

I'm running this on my G3 iBook. MacOS 9.2. It does run efficiently but the trackpad for bowling ball guidance has me perplexed. I'm trying to figure it out.

Seems to run well in Basilisk II with Mac OS 7, although maybe the controls are tricky (or just weird).

Edit: Replaced 'xxx 7' with 'Mac OS 7' - IIGS User
