Be the ball!Enjoy the scenery, but remember to head for the pins!
Roll the ball using AWSD or arrow keys (the Mac and Windows versions can use the mouse/trackpad, but that doesn't seem to work well in the webplayer). ESC to pause.
The webplayer only features the Classic and Rome lanes (same on GameJolt). All six original lanes plus several new ones are included in the Mac and Windows versions on Steam (ignore the warning about macOS Catalina, HyperBowl runs fine) and the other app store versions listed below (if you paid for the full version of HyperBowl here, then let me know and I'll send you promo codes for the other store versions).
The original Arcade Edition (the version running on Windows 98 to XP, not the version actually running in arcades) and associated patches are included here for download for those who want to try to get it to run on modern PCs, but it's not supported, so good luck with that! Old license keys not included.
MacLife's 100 Greatest iPhone Apps of 2009
"Sure, there are a lot of bowling games for the iPhone, but none of them match the legacy that HyperBowl has. The gameplay feels organic, with its beautiful outdoor themed bowling lanes."
"HyperBowl definitely portrays a retro arcade feel that's consistent with the original, and offers a uniquely different game-play that other traditional bowling apps simply do not offer."
"HyperBowl is one wild bowling experience"
"Easy to play yet challenging. Great setting design."
"If you're a fan of the original HyperBowl then there's no doubt that you'll love this portable version."
"HyperBowl is a 3D bowling app that reinvents the bowling game!"
"This exotic mixture of parkour and bowling offers everything a casual gamer needs."
Nine Over Ten
"an interesting diversion from typical bowling games on the iPhone"
5/5 for Entertainment and Value.
