Mini golf games on flash can be a fun way to kill time. They seem to be fairly easy to program, they're certainly easy to play and they can be played through in a relatively short amount of time. There are plenty of golf games throughout the Web for anybody willing to take a look at the countless Flash game sites out there, but one of the best and most inventive is a new game on Silvergames.com called “Wonderputt. “
If you've spent any amount of time playing mini golf either as a simulation created in Flash or in real life, you should be able to figure out how to play this game.
It's an 18-hole mini golf course in which the goal is to get the ball to the whole in as few strokes as possible. There are obstacles in your way, and you will have to know how hard to hit the ball and where to bank it off of walls to get the best score. The controls are simple and self-explanatory.
All you need to do is aim your shot, pull back your mouse to determine the shot strength, and click to send your ball to where you hopefully want it to go. The holes themselves run the gamut between being actually fairly simple to maddeningly difficult, and it will take some time to figure out how to shoot under par on some of the tougher later holes.
The biggest difference between “Wonderputt" and other mini golf games is its presentation. The graphics are surprisingly detailed, and the animations are a lot of fun. It's especially amusing to see how the course is constantly changing as you move from one hole to the next. It's almost all played on one seemingly small futuristic landscape, but that landscape is constantly being reshaped by things such as cows grazing away grass, waterfalls flooding areas, and machinery creating paths through industrial areas.
This constant shifting not only allows for new holes to be created on the same landscape, but it also creates some surprisingly frustrating obstacles. There are times when this game seems so difficult that just making it through all 18 holes looks like an accomplishment. However, this is a golf game, and the goal is to get the lowest score possible.
“Wonderputt " just may be one of the most fun and imaginative sports games on the Internet. Give it a quick play through on Silvergames.com. You will be guaranteed to want to come back and beat your score again and again.
