Summary

Basic 8-bit golf game; very similar to Atari 2600 Golf

The Good

This is my "go to" game when I want to kill time but want to play something relaxing and mellow. The graphics are very simple and basic. You use a golfer character to swat the ball in the direction of the hole. It doesn't get much simpler.

One positive I really like is that if your ball goes into the trees, the golfer character has a tantrum, swinging his club wildly while the computer blurts forth a bunch of beeps!

The Bad

The course is only 9 holes and never varies. It would have been cool to add some variety, such as sand traps or water holes.

The Bottom Line

Basic mellow golf.
