Be the ball! Enjoy the scenery, but remember to head for the pins!

In this licensed modern reimplementation of HyperBowl, the arcade/attraction game launched in the Airtight Garage of the Sony Metreon in 1999,  all six original lanes (Classic, Rome, Forest, High Seas, San Francisco, Tokyo) plus several new ones are now available on  Android, Linux, Mac, Windows and the App Store  (iPhone and iPad).

Controls

On Mac/Windows/WebGL, roll the ball using AWSD or arrow keys. ESC to  pause. The Mac and Windows versions can also use a mouse/trackpad to push the ball, but that doesn't seem to work well in the webplayers. 

On iOS and Android (only available here on itch.io!), swipe the screen to roll the ball (pro tip: longer swipes to roll with more force). Pinch to pause on iOS, back button on Android to pause.

Platform Notes

The newest Mac and Windows builds are on Steam, and the oldest Windows build is on the  Microsoft Store.

On macOS Catalina, double-clicking the game will show an "unverified developer" warning. You can run the game by control-clicking on the game and selecting Open fron the menu.

The WebGL (browser) version is on  GameJolt and  only includes the Classic and Rome lanes.

Arcade Edition

The Arcade Edition downloads on this page are of the original Hyper Entertainment version for  Windows 98 to XP (not the version actually  in arcades), no longer supported but  included here  for those who want to try to it on modern PCs. Good luck with that! License keys are not included.

See original HyperBowl concepts and screenshots on Pinterest, videos on YouTube.
