I haven't took a chance on any of the "minis" until now, however, I'm a sucker for any golf game. Considering the $6.99 asking price, I recommend this to anyone who likes Hot Shots style golf. It's very similar, just bare-bones.
There are 4 full courses set in varying locales and 4 different characters to choose from; two male and two female. You can earn new balls and clothes (with perk attributes) as you win tournaments. There are three difficulty levels and you can monitor your win progress in the options menu.
This is exactly the type of game that I would expect from a so-called "mini".
I put over 100 hours into the PSX Hot Shots games over 10 years ago. I'm not interested in visiting that again, I want something new. Why would I buy this? I've been gaming since 1974...I buy what interests me.
I'm noticing that it's quite difficult to read the elevation change when lining up your shot, but I'm progressively learning how to judge that. Still having fun with this, but it takes quite a while to get medals in all tournaments with all the characters on every difficulty...gonna take some time.
