Golf It! is a golf simulator that copies the mechanics of the real golf, but does it in incredible cartoonish environments. You can play it alone, compete with friends, or create and upload your own custom maps. Though the game is in Early Access, you already can install Golf It! for Windows and have fun.
Fantastic means that the fields you visit in Golf It! are totally impossible in the real world. The mission of the game is not to recreate the real experience. On the contrary, it takes you to ice caves, underground mines, temples, other incredible places made for adventures. The game features a first-person view, but the main object is still the ball.
Never in Real Golf
While that fairytale appearance adds unexpectedness, it also affects the gameplay. The core is the same: you need to hit the ball, so it falls into the hole before it flies away. So you have to calculate both the direction and the force.
But the more sophisticated is the path, the harder it is to hit the hole at the first hit. Don’t even expect to do it on more complicated maps. You just follow the ball as it flies and see how it can reach the hole, to make your next hit more precise.
That’s the pleasure of Golf It! The combination of realistic physics and fairytale looks is impressive. If you’re playing with your friends, your objective is to hit the holes in fewer hits than they. The game shows you the way the others play; and yes, it supports split-screen, so two players can use the same PC. It’s especially great if you have a pair of gamepads.
One of the best things about Golf It! is its customization. You can create your own maps and upload them to Steam Workshop right within the game. All the editing tools are already included; you only have to apply your imagination. Or, of course, download the maps other users have created.
Your Golf Field Anywhere
So far the game is only available for Windows, and even this version is a prerelease Early Access one. Nevertheless, it’s quite playable and well received. You’ll need to free about 8 GB on your drive to download Golf It! As for system requirements, they include a 512MB graphics card (that is, almost any for today), a 2GHz CPU (hard to find a slower one now), and 4GB RAM. So even if you have your old laptop running Windows hidden in the attic, it probably can still run Golf It!
A Golf Tale
Its single-player mode is quite dull. Golf It! is more fun as you play it with friends. But it has a variety of maps that makes the game stand out. With it, you can show your dreamscapes to friends and play golf there.
