Galaxy Golf Now Sinking Spaceputts In Virtual Reality

Cybergoggleeers, please play Galaxy Golf [official site] and allow me to live vicariously through you. It looks like Super Mario Galaxy crazy golf and I’m sorry I can’t find out for myself. Yes, I know I’m the kind of dreadful VR sceptic who calls this latest fad a “fad”. That I’m always saying we’re years away from the future others will tell you is already here. That I insist it’s not even proper VR unless if you die in the game, you die in real life. But I still want to blast balls between dinky planetoids.

You’re in space, right, and so is golf. Holes might be on another planetoid or past some spaceobstacles, requiring careful aim and sly use of gravity to dunk those spacejams. From what I can see, it looks like you’re not swinging an imaginary club but rather planning arcs for shots. Here, have a look at a few holes in this Vive gameplay trailer:

Galaxy Golf is £3.99/4,99€/$4.99 on Steam. It supports HTC Vive and Oculus Rift, with Oculus Touch support to follow. Chet Faliszek says it’s good and that’ll do for me.

Here, this other trailer shows off more of its spacesights and spacesounds:

    Bought it lastnight. Not had chance to play it yet. I keep my Vive boxed up (safe from the kids) and couldn’t be bothered getting it out earlier. Plus Enderal.

    Picked it up and it’s mildly disappointing. There’s only 2 courses, and the 1st (and half the 2nd) is not very interesting. For $5 I at least feel like I got my money’s worth.

    At first, there’s no real ‘funhouse’ tricks like I’d expect in a good theme golf/putt putt game. By the end of the 2nd course there’s some wonderful ideas happening (like putting through your planetoid), I just wish there was more cool stuff like that. It felt like the game was over as soon as the level designer started getting in the groove.

    Also, how about letting me press ‘B’ on my gamepad to exit the robot-helper bit at the end, instead of making me press a button. At least stop making B bring up the menu.
