Our Favorite Flipnotes from last weeks Topic "Ten Pin Bowling"

In our first Topic winning selection this week by Jake Wacky is once again causing havoc, only this time it’s at the Sudo-Bowl.

Wow! He really has an excellent bowling action, although his aim does look a bit dubious.

On that subject, we were wondering who would be the unlucky recipient of the fall-out from his latest activities. And this week, it’s "Georgie", an OC of Casjin’s.

A great choice indeed, poor chap!

PS. Don’t miss the other half of the OC exchange in Casjin’s entry. Can you guess who it will be?

Our next selection by J0w03L uses fine line Flipnote tools and paintbrush shading to create this tremendous animated bowl that scores a strike every time you watch it!

The bowling action is very well observed, and the alley, beautifully detailed with a great use of perspective.

We also liked the touch of cinematic drama from the letter-boxed silhouette, as the bowler lines up the shot.

A fun trip to the bowling alley ends in disaster, in this winning selection by DC.

With great characters, dialogue, and settings, the story moves along swingingly from lounge, to car, to the alley. Only then to finally go out with a bang on the very first bowl.

Now that’s a mind-blowing strike!


With an informative Public Service Announcement, this winning entry by Hi :) gets across its important message with total clarity.

“Don’t bowl into space!”

Now those are words to live by!

Along with this entry's animation style and techniques, we were very impressed with its sound effects, especially when we read in the description that they were all created vocally by its creator.

Great job.

You can really feel the pins smashing apart as the bowling ball hits its mark, in this topic winner by Casjin.

We also loved seeing the second half of the OC exchange happening here, as Jake’s character Jacky, sister of Wacky, makes her hilarious appearance.

This stick bowler dude uses a ramp to attempt a truly incredible bowl, in this comedy action Flipnote by StickmanⓁⓇ.

However, not only does it miss all ten pins in the lane, but it achieves its strike full in the face upon return.

Ouch! That’s gotta hurt!

An unorthodox bowling action earns a lucky strike in this colorful Weekly Topic winning entry by Pen.

We loved the effective use of color-shaded speed lines to create the wind up of the bowl. As well as the music and sound effects which worked well to support the idea.
