  • A really nifty side-view golf game, finish in a limited number of turns. I like the art style of this game and the cool ball trail fx. The ambient nature sounds are very relaxing. The graphs seem well organized and easy to follow.

  • The level of polish in this game is what stands out to me, making it very enjoyable and relaxing to play. I unfortunately have to take off some points for creativity as it is a pretty "traditional" golfing game, but that doesn't mean it isn't interesting or well done! On the contrary, it is simple to pick up, varied in its mechanics, and it has a great learning curve for a gamejam.

    I love how you built upon the platformer tutorial to add your own mechanics and assets. Your graphs appear very clean and organized, and you use the entire arsenal of tools at your disposal. 

    Congrats, I hope you'll keep developing that project!

  • I really enjoyed this game! Iwas pleasantly surprised to see the diversity introduced (Power ups, keys, saws).  There was also a nice level of polish!  One suggestion is to have different ball types: Bouncy Ball - Bowling Ball, etc... Check out "Glover" on the N64. I think this could bring even more diversity to your level design.

    P.S. Cricket soundtrack 10/10

Game looks really nice and has also cool sounds. Game mechanic is also simple and catchy --> "Just one more try..."

Nice job!
