Well. It has been a very long weekend, but we finally made it and finished our take on minimalistic minigolf.

CHECK RADIUS MINIGOLF HERE!

We are really happy with its core mechanics… Draw a radius and hit the ball!

So play the game and let us know what you think. Cheers!

Radius Minigolf – A minimalistic take on minigolf!

Why minigolf?

We love alliteration (you know, “the occurrence of the same letter or sound at the beginning of adjacent or closely connected words”)… so why not to try to take a minimalistic shot at minigolf?

Minigolf and minimalism
So, we think about minigolf and minimalism. A ball, a hole, some obstacles and a swing. And how to perform a minimalistic swing?

Minimalistic swing
We thought about the radius of a circle and we make it rotate anticlockwise in order to hit the ball. The more it rotates, the harder the hit! So, draw a radius and hit the ball!

Game mode
We also thought about a really simple game mode to start with this radius/swing control mechanics. You will have some time to get the golf ball in the hole. If you get it there, you will play the next hole (depending on your performance, you will get some time bonus or not). The more holes you play, the better your score. (Note: we plan other game modes for future releases!)

Screenshot
So, here you have a screenshot of us trying to make a hole in one… SPOILER ALERT: We made it!

We have a Facebook Page. Come and check it out! We will be posting some news about the game there. We will have a playable browser version soon enough and we will tweak it in order to publish it in other platforms! So… Prepare to draw a radius and hit the ball!
