Tiki Magic Mini Golf Reviewed

Applelinks has posted a review of Tiki Magic Mini Golf. Developed using the Unity game development tool, Tiki Magic offers 54 holes spanning three unique courses. Players can enjoy the game solo or play against up to five friends. Applelinks gave the game a score of 2 out of 5.

First, though, the game. Tiki Magic contains three courses, comprising a total of 54 holes: Lono's Lagoon, Lost Temple and Fire Mountain. They all fit the south island theme, but each has a slightly differing personality with its own hazards. One interesting aspect of Tiki Magic is that I developed no preference on which course to play. Usually, in miniature golf games, I find a course or two that I really enjoy, while I never go back to others. Although each course has a couple of annoying holes, they're always offset by the good ones, and I found each to be on the same enjoyment level.

Although there are three courses, there's only one style of gameplay. And oddly, it's not straightforward miniature golf. On each hole are various gems you can collect if your ball runs into them. Collect enough gems (and often, it's impossible not too), and you can spend them on portals that'll automatically take you closer to the whole. Collect ten gems, and you'll receive one stroke off your total.

There are also beverage cups scattered about that will randomly help you or hurt you. Hey, just like real exotic beverages! And finally, Tiki Magic whirlwinds will hurl your ball further down towards the cup, up into the air for gems or into a wall.
The rest of the review is available at the link below.
