If you’ve never heard of Party Golf, then you should immediately forget what you were just thinking right now: it’s definitely not a golf game in the traditional sense… far from it! It’s a couchplay, 2D game, playable with up to 8 players. The goal isn’t to put the ball in the hole in as few shots as possible (like in traditional golf), but instead to be the very first to put it inside.
What’s more, the game features procedurally (randomly) generated levels, which can be fully customised with over 300 unique game options. Party Golf is described as an easy to learn, tough to master game, with deep and rewarding difficulty. There’s also over 100+ unique game modes to try out.
Here’s the main features of Party Golf:
- 1-8 player couchplay golfing madness.
- Over 300 customizable settings, which can be changed during a round in progress. About to flunk your shot? Make yourself an enormous spinny banana.
- So easy to learn, even your 80+ year old grandma can get a kick out hurtling a flourescent purple elephant at a hole.
- So much depth, even the developers have no idea what all of the combinations can do.
- Powerups, checkpoints, coins, mines, and much more.
- Single-Player trials mode.
Curious? Here’s what the game looks like in action:
Last week, Giant Margarita announced they were porting Party Golf to the Nintendo Switch. Unfortunately, it looks like development started very recently, so we will have to wait before getting some details about any Nintendo Switch specific features.
