3D 9 Hole Mini Golf.

3 courses available.

I'm sure you all get the idea. :)


1/2/3 (at start) - Start playing on course 1, 2 or 3
Left/Right - Turn left/right.
Up/Down - Elevate view up/down.
A/Z - Zoom in/out.
Space bar - Hold down a while then release
to hit the ball.


Current ideas for possible additions:

1. Add stars or clouds in the background.
2. Make it multi-player, up to 4 players.
3. Add a mat where the ball starts.
4. Add a putter to hit the ball with.
5. Make the flag wave in the wind.
6. Add a user defined hole (Morre's idea).
7. Add some sort of trap (e.g. sand trap)
(DzzD's idea).
8. Variable rotation rate (DzzD's idea).

If you want any of these, or would like to suggest something else, please add a comment about it.


Version updates

* Added new course (greek letters)
* Removed midi sounds (maybe put them back later)
* Power bar now oscillates up/down.

* Initial submission

That's a fun minigolf game :D I like it a lot!! Awesome. One question, what's the difference between '1' and '2' ?

Ahh... I figured it out :) 1 = the field looks like a number, 2 = it looks like some weird character.

One idea: How about when you press space, making the power go back down if you hold space in for long? Like in some cases you pressed space for too long.

@Arni That's a good idea, I'll look at changing the space bar thing in an upcoming release.
