Elf Bowling 1 & 2 is a compilation of both Elf Bowling 1 and Elf Bowling 2 developed by NStorm, Inc. and Black Lantern Studios and published by Ignition Entertainment for Nintendo DS and Game boy Advance.
The game contains both Elf Bowling and Elves in Paradise: Elf Bowling 2 on a single cartridge. The game contains a menu screen that allows players to choose which game to play.
The original Elf Bowling game has players taking control of Santa Claus going bowling, but the pins are the elves. A meter is at the bottom that is made up of a row of triangles. A different colored triangle with continuously bounce between the far left to the far right of the meter. Wherever the different colored triangle is at when the player presses the button to stop it is where the bowling ball will travel down the lane.
Elves in Paradise: Elf Bowling 2
While Elves in Paradise is the direct sequel to the original Elf Bowling, this one is not a bowling game. This game is instead a shuffle board game that has Santa launching an elf down a shuffle board lane. There are sections of the board that are labeled with point amounts. Depending on where the elf stops will determine points awarded to the player.
Players can launch their elves down the board in to another players elf to knock it to a different location or off the board completely.
