One to four players team up to battle through nine acts of traditional fantasy monsters in this mock play. This brutal brawler is touted for its difficulty and need for a competent team to conquer it. It's a straightforward affair that is surprisingly well rounded and brings a lot of replay value.

2. Bowling

Who doesn't love a good game of bowling? The titular Bowling encompasses all those familiar feelings and even includes a reference to everyone's favorite Dude. It's like a fishing mini-game in any other main game. It's something fun that players can always come back to.
