Zany Golf appears to be an innocent little game, and as such may easily be overlooked. This would be a mistake as once the control system is mastered - which doesn't take long - the variety of unusual holes becomes enthralling, particular when competing against friends. Though there aren't many holes, lowering your score (below par) is a good incentive for further goes. Data disks would be a nice idea for the future.
Power Play (Mar, 1989)
Absolut ausgeflippt, was sich auf den neun Bahnen tut. Wer eine möglichst realistische Golf-Simulation erwartet, sollte gleich den Schläger einpacken. Zany Golf ist ein origineller Software-Jux, der elegant Elemente aus Sport- und Arcade-Spielen mixt. Die Kurse sind abwechslungsreich und schön gezeichnet. Da neben exakter Steuerung auch Geschick und etwas Glück gefordert sind, ist man mit Zany Golf ein Weilchen beschäftigt. Alleine ist das Programm schon eine Herausforderung, im Wettkampf mit Freunden macht es noch mehr Spaß.
The holes are identical to the ST version and play the same as well. Unfortunately it won't run on CGA machines - but it does look good in EGA and VGA. It's still a little difficult calculating strength and direction, but that doesn't harm the gameplay much.
