Jam Theme: Combine 2 Incompatible Genres

Have you always thought "Gee, I wish this modern FPS had fewer guns, less shooting and no multiplayer experience"? Well, this is the game for you. It's all the best parts of an FPS grenade throwing simulator rolled into the game of bowling that you already know and love.

Nice game, but LD games must be made from your own assets, and I guess you're not Brackeys...

Well that’s only partially true. In the LD Compo the game must be made by one person with no outside assets (and done in 48hrs)   The LD Jam however is 72hrs and can be made by a team and can include stuff made outside of the jam. I competed in the Jam and opted-out of voting for graphics (since I’m not trying to hide the fact the models were made by someone else). Anyway, nothing nefarious going on here, you maybe just aren’t super familiar with Ludum Dare. Hope that cleared it up!

ooh, ok! Still, a great game!

I may have been really bad at this game, but played through it multiple times! 


I love this game and the punny title. If only grenade bowling was an actual sport lmao

who even needs battle royale when you have bowling? 



This game was a lot of fun to play, once I figured out what was going on. I had a BLAST

(1 edit)

Truly a game that kicks off with a bang!

Call of Duty: Modern Bowlfare Simplifies the classic fps experience into a grenade chucking simulator! From annihilating pins to landing tricky shots this game is truly a great experience. And never has it been more satisfying to get a strike!

All in all I give this game a 10/10 for its replay value and explosive fun.

Making a Youtube video? Feel free to use this logo! (but don't tell Activision, shh)

This was really fun. Who would of thought grenades made great bowling balls?

Nice! Thanks for playing. Glad to see someone made to the bonus frames :)

This game is insane. A great mix. Just ad more maps and it is perfect!

We ejoyed it very much.

Here is a short video we made while playing:

Keep up the good work!!!

Awesome, thanks for posting!

Great game! We dedicated a whole video to playing it on our YouTube channel. Let us know if you do any updates or make any other games. Keep up the great work!

Awesome! Great vid guys, thanks for playing!

this game is preety funny and awesome

hope theres more level of bowlfare. the grenade is the best!!!! sometime the red barrel didnt explode and the physic of crate, the crate just didnt get blown off after getting hit by exploded grenade. other than that, this game is great

Thanks for playing! Yeah, it's not perfect but in my defense it was made in a weekend haha.

Hahahaaa still a good game though :D

Definitely better than Call of Duty. And bowling. And Twilight of course. Interesting and innovative idea, I had a lot of fun playing!

I made a video as well:

if you want to check, best of luck for your future projects, cheers!

Ps. I got the intro for you: 

War, war never changes. Except when playing bowling. War changes its shoes.

Haha, that's a great intro.  Thanks for playing!
