Vwelcome to ze forüms, ccappreviews

The title reminds me of a time in english class when a friend asked what a "hyper bowl" (hyperbole) is, and the two seniors chilling out in the class said, "It's a bowl that moves very, very fast." Just thought I'd share that.

+2, graphics... very nice...

Does anybody know if it only has that one backround? Because I play this same type of bowling game at my local arcade, except you "roll" a stationary bowling ball and it reacts to that and effets the screen. And at my local arcade, it has more levels.

It only has one screen. If it has more than that, someone please correct me. But I couldn't any buttons to find anything else.

Hoo boy. The graphics look good, but it's by Technicat, makers of such fine pieces of s....oftware as FuguMaze, FuguTilt, and FuguBowl, which are basically the Unity equivalent of a DS Effects title, only with better graphics and worse "game" play. (Because none of them could really be called games)

There's a reason they've got more than one entry in my Hall of FAIL. I have little faith that this title could escape that fate should I ever review it.

Corrected. There's more than one. I think there's 3.

So, does anybody know if they have the forset level? You have to try to avoid trees and the terrien (forgive my spelling) is rugged. I am asking this because I have always loved this level, and would buy it in a heartbeat if it did. Also, to anybody who has it, how is the gameplay? Thanks all.

It's just the Classic lane. I plan convert the other five lanes one by one, but the Classic lane is the smallest, asset-wise, and it still exceeds the recommended limit (unless you have the iPhone 3G-S which has more powerful graphics hardware), so we'll see. I expect to release a performance upgrade of the Classic lane in a month or so.
