A Look Into Video Games: Elf Bolwing 1 & 2 (DS)

 Back in the early days of the Nintendo DS, Elf Bowling 1 & 2 was released. I had no idea the series had a decent amount of popularity on PC. However that wasn't enough to convince me to get this strange little Christmas game.
 The game is basically about Santa Claus taking revenge on the striking elves at the north pole. How? By striking them down in bowling. Get it? Yeah it's not funny. 
 One of the reasons why it had a faithful following on PC was because it wasn't posed as a legitimate game. Just a fun little side-project of sorts. It was no challenger to say Half-Life. However it's crude graphics, bare-bones game-play, terrible music, and weak content was an insult as a DS game. 
To make matter worse they also made a GBA version too. Both were universally panned by critics and gamers alike.

I'm sure that this video game company has gone bankrupt by now.

I remember when this was released on the PC and I have had no interest in playing it again in over a decade
