RPGolf PC Review
Hello everybody, Shaun Meyers here to share my thoughts on RPGolf by ArticNet and Chorus Worldwide Games Limited.
Disclaimer: I received a copy of the game from the developers on Keymailer for Review/Video purposes. Like all of my reviews, however, this had no effect on my thoughts and experiences with the game.
RPGolf is an 8-bit sports game mixed with RPG elements. It combines the game of golf with the action elements of an RPG. It’s a short yet simple game that you can play through in a couple of hours.
The golf elements are setup much like the classic Gameboy version of Mario Golf. The only difference is that you can freely walk around the course as you head to your ball. I will admit that the golf elements are simplified by quite a bit by comparison though. Putting also requires no real effort on your part since you can hit it full speed and it’ll still go in the hole automatically.
The action elements are setup similarly to those in A Link to the Past but these are also simplified by quite a bit. As you’re exploring the game world, you’ll encounter various types of enemies.
Enemies use the same attack pattern no matter what they are. This makes combat rather predictable. You can block enemy attacks by attacking as soon as they attack but it’s actually easier to just move out of the way and then attack as soon as they finish.
The game also features dungeons with their own unique bosses. Each boss has it’s own attack patterns and difficulty. You’ll often need to learn their attack patterns before you’ll be able to conquer them.
There’s also a bunch of different equipment that you can acquire or purchase. As you progress, I recommend visiting every bar you find because they will often have new equipment for you to buy. Equipment includes new golf clubs, gloves and potions.
As you fight enemies you’ll eventually level up. When you do, you’ll be able to allocate attribute points into 4 different stats. Stats include Strength, Defense, Intelligence, and Precision. Each stat helps in various areas and equipment can improve your character’s stats too.
Overall, RPGolf is a pretty fun game to kill a few hours with. It’s not the most challenging game ever made and it’s mechanics are pretty simple but it’s pretty fun regardless. If you’re in the market for some thing to play for a few hours then RPGolf is a great option.
Thanks for taking the time to read the review folks! I’ll be back with my next review soon, until then, happy gaming folks!
Shaun Meyers out!
