Eagle Minigolf Instructions

As with most golf games out there, the controls of Eagle Minigolf is really easy to pick up. Even if it's a tad more complex than the control schemes of average golf games out there, with a little practice, you should get the hang of it. Instead of using your mouse for swinging that club and hitting the ball; tweaking the power of your swinging; and changing the angle until you get it right, you will use your computer's keyboard, especially the arrow keys, for the most part. To increase the power of your swing, press the up arrow key. The increase in power is indicated by the arrow, the larger it gets, the stronger you hit the ball. On the other hand, should you need to decrease the power of your swing, just press the down arrow key... just play with the up and down arrow keys until you get the right swing. The left and right arrow keys for changing the angle of your shot. The arrow, by the way, indicates where the ball will go after you hit it. Again, just play with the left and right arrow keys until you get the right angle. Once you are ready to make the shot, just press the space bar button and hope your swing is good enough to take the ball where you want it to. By the way, this is one of those few golf games where the field or course doesn't fit into the game screen. You need to scroll the camera to get a good view of the track, to see where you want the ball to go, and everything else in between. To move the in-game camera, just use the W, A, S, and D keys, and you should be good to go. While that may sound a lot, it really isn't! Within five minutes of swinging and playing the game, the control scheme should be second nature to you. Onto the game...

Eagle Minigolf Walkthrough

Played in a wide open field with trees, water, sand traps, bunkers, etc. scattered all over the place - this is where golf is played as we came to know it. BUT what if we toss, say a labyrinth or a maze into the mix? Now that's a whole new game, which means new challenges and obstacles to face. And that's EXACTLY what Eagle Minigolf is all about! No, there are no sand traps, trees, or other obstacles in this game, at least, none of the normal obstacles found in a traditional golf course. HOWEVER, you will play a game of golf in a labyrinth!

The chances of landing a hole-in-one in this game are almost non-existent, unless you are REALLY lucky. As for me, I have never been lucky enough to land a hole-in-one in Eagle Mini Golf. Anyway, this golf game comes with 18 holes to play, and each hole is played in an unusual and very tricky terrain. Right from the very first shot, or 'drive' as many golf games enthusiast would call it, you should think where the ball will go. It's not just about covering distance; it's more about being precise with your swings.

Let's have a closer look at the interface of the game. If, for some reason, you have forgotten the controls, just hover your mouse at the control button on the bottom and left part of the screen to bring up the control scheme. Want to exit the game and save? No biggie, the Save and Exit button at the lower right part should get the job done. By the way, this is a fine addition to a golf game, especially since it's an 18-holer. With the amount of challenges you will face, you will spend significant time playing the game, and at some point you may want to save it.

On the top part of the screen, you will find which hole you are in; the Par for that certain level or hole; the number of shots you have taken for that hole; and the total and current number of shots you have taken for the game. I, personally, don't like the music of this game, and if you grow tired of it, just press the sound button at top to mute it.

To be honest, playing Eagle Minigolf is a hate-it-or-love-it affair. There's no in-between. If you are someone who loves mini golf games; if you love challenges that are unorthodox; if you like 3d golf games, then by all means, dig in! I think Eagle Mini Golf has a LOT to offer in those departments.

HOWEVER, there are golf games enthusiasts who are quite disappointed with the game. The controls are unrealistic for them. The inability to see the field, for them, is a HUGE issue (although, I think this can be easily fixed by adding a mini map somewhere in the game's screen). The fact that the ball doesn't roll as far as they expected for a full-powered hit makes them frown. And those are just to name a few.

I, personally, like Eagle Mini Golf. I'm on the 'love it' part of this affair. BUT don't take my word for it. Give the game a shot and see for yourself.
