Golf Odyssey 2Golf Odyssey 2 is a minimalistic arcade golf game with good physics and a beautifully atmospheric world.
The goal is to complete short golf courses that each contain several levels. When we complete all the levels of a course, we can continue to the next course straight away, or upgrade our character’s stats using the gold we earn.
The twist, however, is that we have a limited number of balls in each level, and if we use them all, we must start the entire course all over. It’s almost a light roguelite element.
The courses and levels all differ in difficulty, size, and themes. Some of the levels are a bit challenging at first since our golfer’s power is too low, but this quickly fixes itself after a few upgrades. As we progress, the number of holes in each level also increases, with some including as many as three. Overall, the difficulty is well-balanced.
The simple controls have us drag and release to aim and define the strength of our golfer’s shots. And to top it all off, the pixel art style is beautifully made and fits well with the zen-like music to create a great experience.
Golf Odyssey 2 monetizes via occasional ads between levels, and a $2.99 iAP to remove the ads and get an extra ball in each level. Additional iAPs let us acquire more gold. An extra ball is definitely useful, but with enough practice, every level can be completed without it.
If you are looking for a simple and relaxing golf game with a little challenge, I think you’ll like it.
