self golf [browser]

You are the ball and the only way to jump is to hit yourself with your golf club: Self Golf by Second Dimension Games, created for the 'combine 2 incompatible genres' themed Ludum Dare 41 game jam.

That was surprisingly fun (and far less frustrating than I thought it would be)! Managed to get a -2 on my second attempt at 18 holes (got a +6 or so on my first attempt). Thanks for sharing this with us, Bart!

first game one over par, second game -23 ... you can walk the ball without any penalty, even when the ball is in motion. The game runs very smoothly in full screen, even on my average-at-best computer.

My only complaint is the lack of vision. I wish I could scroll the screen to view more of each hole.

Is there a way to play this on a MacBook?

I actually really love this one. Merci, Bart!

Absolutely lovely. It took me a moment to get used to doing it with my trackpad since I don't have a mouse on hand, but super fun. Love the retro feel.

@anonymous It runs on my macbook, I'm using Firefox as my browser. If the problem is a lack of mouse, it's doable just a little clunky on the trackpad.

Is there some way to scroll around and look at the screen? This isn't much fun if I'm just shooting blind.

The golf ball carrying a golf club is surprisingly adorable.

You can presumably pull up a program at the present time and discover a group of tips to rectify a shank golf shot. The issue is that you do not understand which ones will work and which ones are genuinely an exercise in futility. I have discovered that the most ideal approach to discover what works is to locate the correct ways different golfers have done it.

 

If you are you looking for a solution or a walkthrough for one of the game links, please have a look in the comments.
