3D Ultra Minigolf Deluxe

The game you love, with an ingenious twist!

3D Ultra Minigolf was a childhood favorite of mine - my parents and I would duke it out on a regular basis, and had a blast doing so. Many nights were spent cheering as we one-upped each other.

Minigolf (the real thing) is a great time, and while no video game can truly replicate that experience, 3D Ultra Minigolf does an admirable job simply because of how fun and charming it is. There's a very wide variety of courses, from the typical Windmill up through absurdities like a moon base, and everything in between. There are often multiple ways to get to the hole, and usually a shortcut or two in each level - some hidden, some not. There are some nice extra touches too, like special animations that play when you beat a course with a hole-in-one.

There's a lot to enjoy here. The Deluxe version includes an extra nine holes for a whopping 27 levels! 3D Ultra Minigolf is a really fun, constantly smile-inducing time that's really worth a look, especially if you have a couple friends or family members to play with.
