Example of a Power Throws gameplay.

Power Throws is a game with ten stages. The player attempts to knock down as many pins as they can. The number of pins increases with every stage eventually ending up with a total of 91 pins. One point is awarded per pin knocked down. When you have a strike the points will be doubled on the stage. The highest score possible is 890 pins.

  • Bronze medal = 400
  • Silver medal = 500
  • Gold medal = 600
  • Platinum medal = 700

Secret Strike: On the last stage (91 pins), if the ball is rolled all the way down the lane on the side gutter guards, the screen will start shaking, which will knock down all the pins.

Spin Control

  • Bronze medal = 7
  • Silver medal = 12
  • Gold medal = 17

Spare Pickups

Example of a Spare Pickups gameplay.

In Spare Pickups, there are 20 stages to complete. In order to move on to the next stage, the player must successfully knock down all pins within a single try on each stage. If the player fails to knock down all of the pins 5 times or if the player clears all 20 stages, the game ends. The remaining balls after the player finishes the game don't affect the final score.

In some stages, the player will encounter multiplier stars that will multiply the points get from the stage. There are 0x, 2x, 3x, and 5x. The 0x star should be avoided at all, as it will result of getting no points whatsoever.

Tricky Pins

Example of a Tricky Pins gameplay.

In Tricky Pins, the player must complete 20 stages of bowling lanes. However, unlike in Spare Pickups, the player can start from anywhere. For example, the player can start from stage 10. The number of bowling balls is the same as the ones in Spare Pickups (5). If the player fails to knock down all of the pins 5 times or if the player completes all 20 stages, the game ends.

100-Pin Pro

Example of a 100-Pin Pro gameplay.

In 100-Pin Pro, there are 7 stages in which 100 pins on each stage are set up to resemble an object. The player has 3 chances to knock them all down, and if he or she failed, the game will just move on to the next stage.

The maximum score you can get is 2100 points.

Trivia

  • In 100-Pin Pro, there's a secret strike button to make all of the pins fall down simultaneously. To do it, just swing your bowling ball to the edge of bowing lane, and the ball will roll until it hits the button. There will be a click sound followed by a sonic boom sound and the pins fall.
    • Because of that, 100-Pin Pro is the easiest training game to earn the platinum medal in Wii Sports Club with little to no effort.
