Macworld's Game Room has posted a new review of Danlab Games' Wacky Mini-Golf. The 3D miniature golf game with colorful graphics and characters offers 4 themes, seventy two holes, customizable golfers, online high scores, and up to 4 players in hot seat mode. The Game Room gave Wacky Mini-Golf a score of 4.5 out of 5 mice.

Wacky Mini Golf doesn’t have quite as many holes as Islands Mini Golf does—72 versus 90 (four 18-hole courses, compared to five). But the difference is that the courses in Wacky Mini Golf are much more challenging. There’s a greater variety of hazards that will keep you from the holes—critters walking about, such as crabs, and bizarre things blocking your way, like beach balls. The hole design is fantastic, by the way—there are some very clever, almost Rube Goldberg-like apparatuses for delivering your ball from one place to another, and sometimes you need to really thwack the ball to get it where it needs to go. There are constant water hazards and other pitfalls around, as well.

Aiming and putting is pretty intuitive—a stroke force meter shows how hard you’re going to hit it, and after a few holes, you get the hang of things. You can use either the keyboard or the mouse to control stroke force and direction and to hit the ball; there are also keyboard commands for changing the camera view (helpful to get an overview of the hole), or control iTunes music playback. The game features its own custom soundtrack, but if you prefer your own music, that’s your choice.
