Gameplay and Controls

HVB has two game modes, Let's Bowl and Challenge Mode:

Let's Bowl

A quick-bowl type game that supports up to 4 players all using the one controller. This is good for PlayStation 3 owners who only have one controller and wish to play multiplayer with their friends and family.

Challenge mode

A single player mode where you compete to unlock more players, clothes and balls. There are three different types of challenges: Head 2 Head, Tournament and Trick Shots. 
  • In Head 2 Head you compete against another bowler and unlock the competitor if you win. 
  • Tournament is a bowling tournament against AI opponents, if you win you can unlock items. 
  • Trick Shots is the final challenge mode where you have to participate in objective type bowling games; such as bowling around items and over ramps.
In HVB you utilize the SIXAXIS/ DualShock 3's motion sensing abilities to control your character much like the bowling game in Wii Sports. You grip the SIXAXIS/DS3 upside down and perform a bowling motion with your arm to emulate real life bowling. This works rather well and is good use of the SIXAXIS and DS3.

HVB also supports in-game music through the game itself for players wanting to listen to whatever music they may have on the HDD of their PS3.

Downloadable content is available for HVB through the PSN Store. 
Move support is ONLY available for PlayStation Plus members, otherwise move support will be available in the near future.
