Golfinitie is a golf game that stands out with its nice pixel art graphics and a manageable download size of 337MB. The game offers an initial tutorial to get players started and features four unique locations: Dusty Dunes, Grand Grove, Pristine Pines, and Serene Sky. Each location presents a variety of ever-changing missions that allow players to earn experience and stars.

The game settings are customizable, with the option to turn obstacles on and off. Players can earn coins to purchase boosts and balls, and leveling up grants an upgrade point that can be allocated to one of three stats: shot, accuracy, and control. Players can practice on 9 or 18-hole courses, and each location hosts a tournament that must be won to unlock another location. Stars earned will unlock a tournament.

Each mission has a set goal and a specific number of balls for completion. The game provides useful information such as the shot bar, ball location, and wind direction. The shot input is a simple two-button press system. Despite the challenges, players earn experience and gold even if they fail a mission.

The game features many unique obstacles, from portals to hedgehogs that can hit your ball around. Missions and their locations within the hole are randomized, adding to the game’s replayability. The green is reminiscent of the one used in Mario Golf on the Gameboy. Players can add spin to the wheel and choose where to hit the ball, making it a game that suits short bursts or gaming on the go.

However, the game does have some limitations. It does not support control rebinding or touchscreen. Progression can be difficult as the missions are not always straightforward, and it can be hard to judge the power and curve of shots. The game can feel grindy at times. Additionally, the golfer hitting the ball is not visible during gameplay, and there are no customization options. Despite these challenges, Golfinitie offers a fun and decent casual golfing experience.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
