  • Very fun take on golfing simulators! Never seen anything like this. Would love to see this expanded!

Did you include your Game Design Document in your downloadable files?

Tell us about your game!
My game is a 2D mini-golf game. It's based around the idea of your shots spreading out. Each of the 13 putters has a different hit-profile, some are more uniform others are very random. Some putters even have special effects like ignoring ground effects, random bounces, or being able to stop on command. Unlock putters by beating courses with a score under par, or use any putter in free play mode. The whole game can be played with the mouse.

Did you remember to include your Game Design Document?

Is your game set to Public so we can see it?

I could play 100 levels of this and want more, awesome game!


Thank you!


I keep playing this game everytime it shows up in the submissions list. This made golf fun! 


I'm glad you like it!


really interesting game idea and one of my favorite implementations of the theme.




Really clever idea and I like how it takes away some of the more frustrating aspects of how precise golf games can be. Love that there are more putters to unlock!


thanks! I always feel like I get unlucky bounces when I play mini golf games, it feels great to get some lucky ones too lol. 


Great graphics and great idea, well done


Carl would be very proud of you! I really like how this doesn't feel like other golf games out there. I still need to test all putters, but it looks like there's many ways in which you could expand this game, specially forcing the player to use different putters depending on the situation. Great job!


Yeah, I had a tough time making courses that required soft hits.  Thank you for your feedback!


Okay as a golf game fan, this game rules. As a mathematics fan, the name rules. And as a fan of pixel art, your 1-bit art here in some of the screens and GUI rules. Really nice job here. Super satisfying to play and watch the balls spread out every time.


Thank you very much!

This is such a fantastic concept, very fun, with great graphics and polish! The only thing I think could do with some tweaking is the "activate" ability some putters have, which I feel is too hard to use well, or at least I couldn't find good uses for those abilties. Overall though, really great and polished entry!


Hey! Nice game! I love the clean UI and the controls are reponsive and intuitive, and the style tying into the Gaussian vibe is great!

Gameplay is great for a prototype. I did find that I could pretty much play it with the highest power putter and rely on the straight hit for most of my shots. I appreciate this is a consequence of the "It's Spreading" theme and I'm not sure how I'd improve it, but it's just some feedback.

Great job!
