Be the ball! This authorized version of HyperBowl for the iPhone and iPad is brought to you by one of the developers on the team that created the original arcade and attraction game over ten years ago. Bowl around the richly imaginative original six fantasy worlds - the eerie Classic lane, ancient Rome, an idyllic Forest, rocking High Seas, the streets of San Francisco and the bright night lights of Tokyo, plus an all-new original snowpark lane. Enjoy the scenery, but remember to head for the pins!
Swipe up along the screen to push the bowling ball forward, left and right to roll horizontally, down to push the ball back. Tip: Sweep along the length of the screen for a more powerful push. Also compatible with the iCade.
Play 1-4 players in the original Arcade Mode or quick-play with your Game Center account, featuring a leaderboard for each lane and up to sixteen achievements for completing lanes, consecutive strikes and bowling a perfect game! Also compatible with the iCade.
