Description official descriptions

Using the mouse to determine the direction and strength of your putts, you must navigate 9 tricky holes of crazy / mini golf. Try to putt into holes protected by bouncing hamburgers, windmills, etc. Courses have several twists; one is a mad scientists's lab, another is a pinball table. The final hole is especially bizarre, themed around energy.

You start with 3 strokes, but get the par for each hole added on, if you reach it in time - run out of strokes, and your game is over. You can earn bonus strokes by finding hidden bonuses and by completing courses quickly. Up to 4 players at a time can take part in this game, with anyone badly over par being eliminated as the game progresses.

This game is a blast.

The Good
The concept of the holes was excellent. Just enough difficulty to keep you coming back for more. The first of the great mini golf games. Excellent on the sega genesis as well.

The Bad
Back then it was perfect. Now it needs an older computer or a slow down utility to run correctly.

The Bottom Line
The mini golf game that started it all.

The PC speaker music score is very good for just a single voice, but the score really shines on a Tandy, where you can hear all three voices.
