After Hours Athletes

Pool, darts and bowling games arrive in a boxed collection perfect for indoor sports fans.

Motion sports games shouldn’t just be about tennis, golf and boxing, you know. There’s a whole other market for a different kind of player who wants to take part in more relaxed indoor events.

Maybe a spot of pool, or a game of darts. Sony and Puma Social have called these people  ‘after-hours athletes’, and have named the game after them.

After Hours Athletes includes three classic games from the PlayStation Network in one box – Hustle Kings, High Velocity Bowling and Top Darts. Each uses the PlayStation Move motion controllers, boasts stereoscopic 3D functionality and eight-player multiplayer in both online and offline guises. This presents players with plenty of replay value too. 

Hustle Kings is basically an arcade pool title with crisp HD visuals and a variety of game modes, including US 8 Ball, 9 Ball, Black Ball, 3 Ball, Killer and Cutthroat, making it perfect for pool players. It also features a range of snazzy professional snooker halls to play in.

High Velocity Bowling presents gamers with classic ten-pin bowling action. Users can bowl balls down shiny lanes and master a range of spinning techniques to land strike after strike.

Then there’s Top Darts which has nine game modes on offer such as Around the Clock, with in-game venues ranging from Irish pubs to exotic beachside bars. Each match also includes commentary from darts veteran Sid Waddell.

After Hours Athletes is an ideal buy for consumers who want a game for a fun Friday night in, or those who are looking for something different in a motion-sensing sports title.
