Arcade Bowling is a ten pin bowling game for up to four players. iIt is entirely mouse controlled. This game features different alleys: Bowl-O-Rama, Tin Pan Alley, Coalmine, Candycane Court, Flower Power Boulevard and Landmark Lane all of which play exactly the same.

In this game the player has a choice of two control systems, both of which use the mouse. They always use the right mouse button to move their bowler left/right at the end of the lane and the right mouse button takes the shot. However the shot control can either set power and spin with the direction being the final adjustment, or power and direction with spin being the final component.

There is a choice of character to play as but there is no option to name the character with the player's name(s). All shots are animated in 3D and cannot be skipped, after particularly good/bad shots the player's character dances or shows extreme despair with their opponents usually reacting in the opposite manner.

There are three levels of difficulty and the game keeps the top five scores for each. There is in-game music and an option to play tracks from a CD.
