Incredible Technologies is famous for introducing insightful and entertaining commentary into all of their sports-themed video games. Months of planning and work go in to each commentary script to ensure it's as comprehensive and fun as possible.

Silver Strike Bowling features pro bowler and ESPN® announcer, Randy Pedersen as the play-by-play man. His witty comments have quickly become synonymous with Silver Strike Bowling's success in bars and taverns around the world.

RANDY PEDERSEN: With 13 total career Pro Bowling titles under his belt, Randy Pedersen is one of the most decorated professional bowlers to date. Not only is he famous as the lead commentator on Silver Strike Bowling, but also the acclaimed ten-pin star is ESPN's lead bowling color analyst. Since joining the PBA commentary booth in 2001, Pedersen has garnered more attention from the entertainment world. His cameo appearances in the movie "Greedy" and mega-hit comedy "Kingpin" top his list of cinema accomplishments, along side his hosting role of TNN's TV series "Rock and Bowl" in 2000.


Play Modes: Classic Bowling and Vegas Bowling


CLASSIC BOWLING is the traditional 10-frame bowling format where each frame represents one turn for the bowler, and in each turn the player is allowed to roll the ball twice.  If the bowler knocks down all the pins in the first roll it's considered a strike. If any pins remain, the bowler attempts to knock them down with a second roll. If they succeed, it's called a spare; any pins remaining denote an open frame. If the frame is left open, the bowler receives a score equivalent to the number of pins knocked down. If a spare is made, a slash mark is recorded in the right-hand corner of the frame and no score is recorded until the first ball is rolled in the next frame. After it's rolled, the bowler receives credit for the number of pins knocked down, plus 10. If a bowler gets a strike, an X is recorded in the box and the player receives a score of 10 plus the total pins knocked down in the next two rolls. There are a total of 120 pins a bowler can knock down in one game, making a maximum score of 300.


VEGAS BOWLING is unique to Silver Strike Bowling and is the most popular game choice. Using the exact set of rules as CLASSIC BOWLING, VEGAS BOWLING adds a second level of competition by giving bowlers playing cards every time a mark (spare or strike) is made.

After the players view the score sheet, a second sheet appears showing who currently has the best 5-card poker hand!

Control Panel


Learn How to Control Your Ball Direction

Just like real bowling, Silver Strike gives bowlers the ability to control the speed, angle and curve of a bowling ball. While novices can choose to bowl straight down the middle of the lane to get satisfactory results, experimental Silver Strike bowlers can greatly increase their odds with limitless curve, weight and speed combinations.

SSB's trackball control system is modeled off of Golden Tee's famous design. Easy to learn but difficult to master is the motto of Incredible Technologies' Silver Strike Bowling and Golden Tee Golf development teams.

Ball Flight Arrows

Players will be given the ability to select any trackball combination and the ball path calculator will project the estimated line!


Starting a game of Silver Strike Bowling is as simple as pressing a button! The RED START button not only fires up an SSB game, but it also can access REPLAY during game play!

  • Press the START button to begin a game.

  • CHOOSE number of players.




  • SWIPE PLAYER CARD on identification screen.

  • Select MALE or FEMALE.


How to Watch a Replay

Ball Weight

Just like in real bowling, ball weight plays a critical role in Silver Strike. The weight of the bowler's ball in SSB affects the ball's momentum, control and pin action just as if the player were on a real lane.

Bowling Made Simple!

Silver Strike Bowling utilizes the acclaimed trackball-control system made famous by Incredible Technologies' pop-culture favorite, Golden Tee Golf. Just like GT, a simple hand motion rolling the trackball backward, then forward brings the on-screen character to life.

How to Bowl

    How to Hit

  • Choose your BALL WEIGHT.

  • Aim by moving your bowler LEFT or RIGHT with the trackball. Use the OVERHEAD view to reference lane boards and dots.

  • ROTATE your bowler with the LEFT or RIGHT buttons if desired. This will angle your bowler in different directions.

  • Once aimed, roll the trackball BACK underneath your palm or with your thumbs.
    This triggers the bowler's backswing.

  • Next, roll the trackball FORWARD with your palm or thumbs to throw your ball down the lane.

  • It's as simple as that!

Cameras & Replays

Silver Strike Bowling offers players the ability to control unique camera angles throughout game play. These camera views can be beneficial to bowlers when lining up their shot, as well as viewing ball's approach to the pin.

Lining Up a Shot - SSB players are given the ability to use an OVERHEAD VIEW while lining up their shot. While setting up, hold down the OVERHEAD button to view the lane boards and dots.

During a Roll - Bowlers have the ability to view different CAMERA ANGLES and watch pin impact in SLOW MOTION. Press the LEFT, RIGHT and OVERHEAD buttons to toggle through different camera angles as the ball is approaching the pins.

Press the SLOW MOTION button while the ball is approaching the pins and watch the pins fly in slow-mo! All these camera views are also available when viewing a REPLAY

Rotate Bowler

Silver Strike Bowling allows players to change the angle of their bowler while they're setting up a ball! This feature can be useful when picking up tricky spares or trying new combinations of curve and speed.

To Rotate Your Bowler -- Press the LEFT button to rotate left or the RIGHT button to rotate right prior to rolling the ball. Press any button to reset your bowler’s setup at anytime.


Did You Know?

Facts About Silver Strike Bowling 2007

  • It was bowling - not golf - that originally put Incredible Technologies on the map! The company designed its first ten-pin success, Capcom Bowling, in 1988. The famous game was followed by the design of Strata Bowling in 1990 and ultimately World Class Bowling in 1997. Each game was trackball controlled, but a 'backswing' wasn't introduced until the launch of Silver Strike Bowling in 2004.

  • Incredible Technologies has not always been known as Incredible Technologies. Called Free Radical Software when founded by co-owners Elaine Hodgson and Richard Ditton, the company's earliest projects consisted of developing pinball operating systems and game programming for Apple II, Commodore 64, Amiga and a variety of other consumer systems.

  • In 2005 Incredible Technologies released Silver Strike Bowling en Español. With a commentary script hundreds of pages long, Latino voice announcer Alex Vargas came to IT's sound lab and recited all of the bowling commentary in Spanish!

  • Bowling has been popular for centuries! The Professional Bowling Association states that bowling balls and pins were found in the tomb of an Egyptian King who died in 5,200 B.C.! Record also shows that the ancient Polynesians bowled on lanes that were 60 feet long, which is the same as today's alleys!

  • There's a limit on how hard you can roll the ball. Throw your shot too hard and you will be penalized with an OVERHIT foul!

  • Silver Strike 2007 Bowler's Club players receive more camera angles to choose from than the original! Left camera, right camera, behind-the-pin deck camera and MORE!

  • Silver Strike 2007 Bowler's Club gives players the ability to view the ball's line and speed with STRIKE TRAK when a REPLAY is played! This allows you to analyze the line and speed of your shot!

PRO Tips and Silver Strike Bowling Cheats

Silver Strike Bowling Cheats and Tricks

PRO TIP: In Silver Strike 2007 Bowler's Club you can access your Vegas Bowling hand during game play by simply holding down the OVERHEAD and RIGHT buttons!

PRO TIP: Use a heavier ball for the most impact on your first shot and select a lighter ball for the greatest control on tight pickups.
