FavoriteLoadingAdd game to your favorites

This is a 45-stage physics puzzle game inspired by minigolf. Rather than hitting the ball directly you set off an impulse near the ball and send it bouncing around the level.

  • Set off impulses near the ball to put the ball in motion.
  • Angle your impulses to send the ball around obstacles or bounce the ball around corners.
  • Get the ball into the hole before you run out of impulses.

How to Play

Set off impulses near the golf ball to push it around the level and into the hole.

  • Starting the Game
    • Select the blue and white play button in the center of the game’s welcome screen to bring up the level select screen.
      • Initially only the first level is available.
      • Each time you beat a level you unlock the next.
      • Your web browser automatically saves your game progress.
    • The bottom of the welcome screen shows how many levels you have unlocked & has a settings button which allows you to reset your game progress.
  • Game Controls
    • Desktop
      • Use your mouse left click button to set off impulses.
    • Touchscreen devices
      • Tap the screen with a finger where you would like to set off an impulse.
    • Controls & indicators
      • The bottom of the screen shows how many impulses you have left.
      • The upper right corner of the screen has three buttons to restart the level, go to the level select screen, or go to the game’s welcome screen.
  • Game Play
    • Levels
      • This game has 45 levels which are unlocked sequentially.
      • You can go back and replay previously beat levels at any point in time.
      • You start each level with 10 impulses. If you get down to zero it is game over.
      • This game offers unlimited continues, starting you back at the beginning of the level you lost on with 10 impulses.
    • Strategy
      • On straight away shots with a long way to go it can make sense to try to shoot the ball down the middle, though if you need the ball to curve sometimes it makes sense to shoot the ball off a wall in the other direction to give the ball an angle.
      • If the ball needs to change directions and go through a narrow passage way it can make sense to have the ball approach at a slower speed. There are 2 main ways to do this:
        • Set off your impulse further away from the ball so it pushes less force on it.
        • Knock the ball off of parallel walls to slow it down.
      • Hitting obstacles
        • On some golf games the ball breaks if it bumps into the course walls or other in game obstacles. In this game hitting something can throw a ball off course but otherwise will not harm it.
        • In some cases it is almost impossible not to hit some obstacles, so rather than bumping into a few in unpredictable ways it can make sense to intentionally plan your shot route to bounce off of one in a particular direction.
      • When to hit?
        • Typically it makes sense to hit the ball after it has come to a full stop, though sometimes it makes sense to shoot while it is still in motion if you need to get it to change directions for a brief period of time when it is parallel to an orthogonal path it must traverse.
        • One then to look out for if you hit the ball while it is in motion is sometimes the screen zooms in or zooms back out & if the zoom changes while you are trying to hit that will throw your shot wildly off.
      • How hard to hit the cup?
        • In some games if the golf ball hits the hole too hard it keeps rolling. That is not the case with this game. You can hit the hole hard and still have the ball go in.
      • Aggressive vs defensive play
        • When you start a level the opportunity cost of restarting it is quite low, so it makes sense to try to get a great first shot.
        • As you get closer to the hole it makes sense to play less aggressive to increase your odds of success, where you can keep short putting the shot with precision, especially if you have many impulses remaining.
        • If you have few impulses remaining and are a long way from the hole it can make sense to take more aggressive high-risk shots.
  • Target Audience
    • The game is suited for players who like minigolf games.
    • The game has no adult themed content.
