What the Golf? is a humorous arcade game based very loosely on the rules of golf. The production was developed by an independent studio Triband, whose members honestly admit that they have no idea about the original.
The game consists in hitting various objects with an invisible stick; in this way we move them along the board in a given direction and with a certain force. Each "golf course" (we are talking about backyards, roads and even football pitches or even bowling lanes) is a separate mini-game in which the ball is taken over by another object, the game is governed by its own rules, while the action is presented from a different perspective (from a bird's eye view, from the side or in the FPP view).
For example, if we play by car or house, we avoid obstacles and try to reach the end of the route in one piece; we release the bowling ball in order to break the verticals in front of it; the soccer ball must hit the goal; in turn, the horse and rider - reach the designated area. In addition, there was a place for mini-games inspired by other productions, such as a simple platformer, a variation on the popular "snake", and even a simple FPS. There is also something for everyone who loves the Olympic Games (diving, volleyball) and even astronomy fans (fun to bounce the ball between planets with the use of the gravitational assistance).
The graphic design of What the Golf game is simple, but at the same time colourful and clear. A physical engine based on ragdoll technology ensures that certain objects behave according to the laws of physics, which often leads to comical situations.
