Summary

Golf Peaks is a charming puzzle game, it’s a simple concept in that you play action cards to move the ball into the hole. I feel I have played a game like this before but that doesn’t detract from it, later on, it gets quite devious and dare I say frustrating but it is a cool little game.

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!
