A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, Linux, and Android
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).
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.
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.
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.
This version of HyperBowl by Technicat LLC is built with the original HyperBowl art and sound assets licensed from Hyper Entertainment (now Absolute Certainty), the Unity game engine, Lens Flare and Simple Particle Pack from Unity Technologies, Noto fonts from Google Fonts, Particle Scaler by Roel Ezendam, Real Flames by BlackFire FX, iTween by Pixel Placement, Lean Localization by Carlos Wilkes, Finger Gestures by Fatal Frog Software, UnityNativeGallery by Süleyman Yasir Kula.
