Astro Golf, a simple and relaxing game about shooting some balls in space

By - | Views: 6,548

After spending tons of time with Factorio recently, I needed something that used a little less brainpower to relax with and Astro Golf is a game that fits perfectly. It's about interplanetary golf, launching a ball across planets and getting it to touch their gravity and slide into a hole.

Simple stuff, incredibly relaxing and it was made on Linux too with Unity.

The design of it is so clean and uncomplicated, yet weirdly stylish at the same time. When you manage to score, the level then warps around the current planet to change into a new level. It's such a brilliant bit of minimalist artwork and animation I'm a little in love with it.

The developer claims every level can be done in a single shot…lies! Well, they're probably not lying, I'm just absolutely awful at it but who cares it's space Golf! Fantastic time waster, with a promise of "endless" levels there's plenty of time to master getting a hole in one every time.

Good stuff! You can find it on itch.io for around $3.

Bought it, enjoyed it. Thanks for the heads up on it.

Reminds me of Desert Golf on android.

It's almost exactly the same game as my previous Linux Game Jam entry.

That really looks like a blatant copy (ofc, with a bit more work put in)
I can't tell you how I hate people stealing and exploiting ideas.
Not even giving credits... :/

Don't they dare to tell me, that's just a coincidence.

^ I know, right? :D

Seriously though, Astro Golf looks pretty nice, and extra cool that it's developed on Linux.

This looks like an excellent zone-out minute killer. Heretofore my go to game for this has been King Oddball (very cheap on sale...watch for it) another physics game involving swoopy, curvy movement.

For now I've downloaded Flesk's Space Golf because it's a LINUX EXCLUSIVE!! XD. But, seriously, $3 is more than reasonable for Astro Golf.
