There's something about miniature golf games that endears them to most. Stripped away of the pomp and ceremony of the green and fairway, the act of hitting a small ball into a slightly larger hole becomes something everyone can enjoy.
Death Golf tries to tap into that, but adds its own macabre twist. It's not just man versus ball any more - now it's man versus killer ducks and bear traps too.
Some of the additions work, and some of them don't, but it's at least a valiant attempt to open golf up to the psychopath end of the market its been missing out on.
Hole in one lung
Its parts might not quite work together, but Death Golf is still a mostly entertaining little arcade game
