How To Get A Strike On Wii Bowling
If your scores in Nintendo Wii Bowling just don't match up to your scores in real bowling, it's time to stop rolling gutters and learn how to get a strike in Wii Bowling. Wii Bowling is one of the five mini-games available on the Wii Sports disc that comes with each Ninteno Wii system. Wii Bowling is a great party game where up to four players can compete against each other. The Wii Bowling rules are the same as in real bowling, so in order to succeed you need to know how to get a strike. Your Wii Bowling movements will be similar to those you use for real bowling, although it is a little easier to get a strike by throwing the ball mostly straight in Wii bowling than it is in real bowling.
- Prepare for your shot. Hold the Wii remote in front of you with the front of the remote pointing at the ceiling. Press and hold the trigger. You will see the game recognize your button press by materializing your avatar.
- Make your backswing. Bring the Wii remote down and then swing it behind you. Keep the remote straight, as opposed to turning it from side to side, during this process.
- Swing the remote forward, just like you are throwing a bowling ball. As you swing your arm forward begin to rotate the remote to the right. Release the trigger just after your arm passes the lowest part of its arc. If you release the trigger at the exact bottom of the swing, the ball will rotate too much. Releasing it just after the bottom of the swing will put a little air under the ball and make it rotate just enough to hit the pocket next to the head pin, which is the exact spot you need to hit if you want to get a strike..
- Follow through with your swing. A proper swing is only complete once you follow through. Failing to follow through means you might not complete the entire swing and stop early. Continue to rotate the remote to the right during your follow through, ending with your remote rotated 90 degrees to your left.
