This is what Elf Bowling 1 and 2 is in a nutshell. On both platforms. All you do is press A to throw a ball at elves, and they fall down. There is no satisfaction at all in terms of this. Also, there is no sound worth mentioning. There is horrific sound at the title screen of the elves spoofing the chorus of a Vanilla Ice song, which as you might guess is terrible, and the other sounds the elves make are absolutely fake, even by Game Boy Advance standards. There is also a 2-second "song" used in Elf Bowling 2 when it is your turn, but it is also very grating. The game's graphics are OK, but there is clearly not much effort put into them (this is a port of a 1999 flash game). If you are playing this on the GameCube's Game Boy Player adapter, everything will look like junk. Also, the gameplay is very lame. You can get the same amount of fun by taking a game controller and pressing a single button with your console unplugged.
