Mini Golf on a mini screen should be a good combination. Fortunately, with 3D Mini Golf Challenge it is.
The key to mini golf is that it should be fun and this is. The graphics are high quality and the physics engine realistic enough to feel that you’re in control as you guide your ball through an increasingly difficult series of hazards.
The game draws you in through a free lite version and then onto the full game where low scores will unlock new levels all the way up to Expert. In some levels you play against the clock, others to try and get holes in one, but the most fun is to be had against your choice of male or female computer generated opponent.
There’s plenty of both arcade and then challenging gameplay here to keep you amused for several hours, but as ever we’d love to see more levels.
While it’s fun to play against the computer, it would benefit from more opponents to match the various themed sections of the game, such as pirates, vampires and medieval characters overreacting to your good or bad shots. Likewise a multiplayer mode would enhance the game.
The music while in keeping with the theme does get annoying, although you can turn it off.
If you’re looking for a great mini golf game, then try out the Lite version first and then upgrade to the full paid version for hours of fun and frustration, currently £1.19 ($1.99).
