nGolf is a vibrant and engaging mini-golf game for the Nintendo Switch, boasting a modest 221MB download size and compatibility with both joycons and controllers. The gameplay is described as ‘crazy golf,’ where players align an arrow for direction and power before hitting ‘go.’ A unique feature is the hole’s slight magnetic pull, which aids in putting, enhancing the user-friendly experience.

The game ensures a smooth flow with no loading times between holes, and each world concludes with an event scorecard. Players can easily restart levels or return to the platform menu, making it convenient to manage gameplay. The game world is noted for its brightness and color, creating an inviting atmosphere for players.

Each hole displays the par score, and players can collect stars along the way to the hole, adding an extra layer of challenge and reward. The game is fast-paced, with each world having a completion percentage based on stars collected, encouraging replayability. There are eight worlds to unlock and play, each offering a different theme and set of challenges.

The soundtrack is upbeat, complementing the arcade-style presentation. However, the game has some limitations, such as the inability to rebind controls and a lack of camera movement, which can sometimes obscure obstacles. Additionally, the aiming bar may clash with the courses, making it difficult to see and use.

While nGolf is easy to get into and provides immediate entertainment, it falls short in terms of replay value, primarily because there are no rewards for 100% completion of a course. There are no unlocks or online leaderboards, which might detract from the game’s long-term appeal.

Overall, nGolf offers a straightforward and enjoyable mini-golf experience with a few drawbacks. It’s perfect for quick sessions and provides a cheerful, arcade-like atmosphere for all ages. However, for those seeking depth and long-term engagement, the game’s lack of additional incentives and some design choices may be a point of consideration.

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!
