Goat Bean Golf 2005 Free
I've only played a real game of golf a couple of times in my life, but on the other hand, I have played my fair share of miniature golf. It's a fun thing to do occasionally, especially if you enjoy feeling like a giant. You get to aim at lighthouses, tunnels, windmills, and other players. Without fail, someone's golf ball always winds up bouncing across the entire course, and eventually ends up in a water hazard. Then the player has to teeter on the base of the plastic volcano to try to fish the neon golf ball out of the diseased looking water. It's funny because it's true. If you'd rather play a virtual game of miniature golf, try your hand at Goat Bean Golf 2005. With a name like that, you can't help but love it, right? The graphics aren't anything to write home about, but the gameplay is pretty fantastic. There are also a surprising amount of options for a game like this. 54 holes are included with the game, and 1-4 players can join in on the fun. Besides playing the included levels, you can also create your own. Once you've developed your masterpiece, you can submit it online, and download other user created courses. I really liked the way you deal with money in the game. Once you acquire enough cash, you can purchase new levels and items. No matter how good you get, don't expect any Nike endorsements to come your way.
