Miniature Golf Review
6:25 PM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story

Mac Gamer's Ledge has posted a review of Miniature Golf by Smarter Than You software. This 3D-accelerated minigolf game features OpenGL graphics and both Arcade and Realistic modes of play. The reviewer found the game simple and charming, a fun shareware diversion. Here's an excerpt from the review:

As the name suggests, Miniature Golf is a computerized simulation of - yes - the game of miniature golf. For those of you who live on a buoy in the Pacific Ocean and yet somehow have an Internet connection, the idea of miniature golf is to hit a small, round, dimpled ball into a hole, marked by a flag. In general, this takes place on a relatively small, confined green area, with various obstacles (hills, valleys, sharp corners, windmills, and so on) in the way. Preferably the player would like to get the ball in the hole with fewer hits than "par."
Read the rest of the review for more details on this shareware title. If you want to take this game for a spin yourself, be sure and grab the demo.
