A virtual reality casual sports mashup - taking all that’s best about mini golf and bowling and delivering it in a simple, fun package.
What is VR Mini Bowling?
Bowling is all about the dexterity, skill and - let’s be honest - sheer luck of knocking down distant pins with a watermelon-sized ball. Mini golf is all about the dexterity, skill and - let’s be honest - sheer luck of battering a tiny ball into a distant hole. Frustrating? Yes. Fun? Absolutely, especially with friends who‘d like to watch you flail around in VR, trying to look professional. VR Mini Bowling takes these two normally disparate sporting worlds and combines them in a medley of ten-pin bowling mashed up with mini golf staples like moving objects, curvy courses and blind spots. Add in VR shenanigans like moving platforms and gravity-defying loops and you have a game with a lot of potential for laughs and replay value. This is definitely where the developers have focused, as opposed to say graphics or sound effects.
Early access issues?
VR Mini Golf is still being developed. To their credit, the developers are already putting out regular updates, so this game looks like it’s getting off to a great start.
