World Class Leader Board

aka: World Class Leader Board Golf

Description official descriptions

Before the long-running Links series, Access Software produced the Leader Board lineage, which concludes here. Wind, snap, and power are the main considerations as players dodge the bunkers, water, and rough, which make for more complex courses than the 8-bit versions of the original.

A course editor is included. The courses provided include real locations: St. Andrews (Scotland), Cypress Creek, and Doral Country Club (USA) and a fictional one, The Gauntlet, which, as the name suggests, is designed to push the player's skills to the maximum.

The PC version utilizes the PC speaker to reproduce voice samples via the company's patented RealSound process. Quips like "No doubt about it, he's deep in the sandtrap", "Straight onto the fairway", and "Looks like he hit the tree, Jim" are used as running commentary during gameplay.

Revisions on DOS version

The DOS version of World Class Leader Board went through several revisions; some to fix bugs, and others to add features. One revision that appeared around the same time Echelon was marketed is an advertisement for said game; a voice, booming through the PC speaker, talks about the game if you hit "Info" on the main screen instead of "Main Menu". The exact text spoken is:

Battle space pirates on the tenth planet Isis in Access Software's space flight simulation Echelon (with RealSound).

(I guess they had 110K of disk space to kill and decided to fill it with an advertisement).
