Be the ball! Bowl around the richly imaginative six fantasy lanes of the original attraction game: the eerie Classic lane, ancient Rome, an idyllic Forest, rocking High Seas, the streets of San Francisco and the bright night lights of Tokyo.
In addition, this licensed remake features several all-new lanes: the Snowpark lane, the Campfire lane, the Penelope lane, the Mushroom lane, and the Grassy Pier.
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.
Tips: Sweep along the length of the screen for a more powerful push, and in Settings turn off in-app access to Control Center to avoid activating Control Center when swiping near the bottom of the screen)
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!

Skins for bowling ball
Love this game😁👍.But is there any possible way that you can add all the different colors and patterns for the bowling balls that were on the pc and other platforms. Instead of there just being 3 that are pretty simple. Would really appreciate it since I don’t have a pc anymore. Thanks🙂.

Hi, thanks for the review! All of the current versions of HyperBowl (mobile and desktop) should have the same set of ball textures, should be around five, I think (I see seven textures in the ball texture folder, but I don't think I'm using all of them). It may be hard to see all of them since the texture is picked at random at the start of the game.
If you're referring to the original PC game, I think you're right, I might not have all of those ball textures (I made this version from assets in the original source code, but it's possible not everything is there). I could add or commission more ball textures from another source, and I've also been thinking about adding a ball selector so you can choose your own (maybe as an in-app purchase).
I'm also thinking about redoing the game with the Unreal engine this year (this version uses the Unity game engine) so if that happens I'll keep this in mind. In the meantime, if you haven't noticed it already, the iOS version has a Custom Ball option in the pause menu, and if you select that you can use any image in your Photos gallery as the ball texture! (I just put that feature in for fun, but seems like some people actually use it)
I used to play Hyperbowl on my PC as a kid...amazing as it was, I grew out of it but no longer could find the CD ROM recently to play it again. Last I played it was about 9 years ago. I’m actually really happy there this game is now an app! Brings back many memories!

Thanks for the great review! I'm glad you're enjoying the game!
Used to play this game many years ago on PC and had a blast. As for the iOS app, I’m happy to say that this port does the game justice. It runs smoothly and its touch-based controls work very well.

Thanks, I spent a lot of time tuning the touch control, trying to get it just right!
