Reviews

“A dystopian steampunk golf game.” PERRRRRR-DOOIIIIIIIINNGGG! My heart’s back up where it belongs!”
Rock Paper Shotgun

“I think it's safe to say that Vertiginous Golf is one of the most unique mini-golf titles I've ever played, and its steampunk setting is the real capper to such an off-the-wall and rich concept. I'm quite fond of its approach to narrative within a mini-golf game.”
Destructiod

“Its puzzling, challenging, and deeply weird characteristics make for a unique and engaging experience that brings new life to the staidest of sports”

About This Game


Vertiginous Golf is a dystopian steam punk mini golf adventure game set in the skies above an alternate world where life on the ground is enveloped in permanent smog, constant darkness and never-ending rain.

After suffering on the ground under a haze smog and pollution, the people of Scudburough have been split in half by a lottery, with the winners heading up into the clouds to live in a floating city called New Lun-Donne. For those left below, they can get a temporary escape from the gloom through the Verti-Sphere, a device that allows them to rise virtually into the cloudy paradise to play mini golf on challenging obstacle courses floating in the sky. But something is amiss in this nation of two cities. Another voice is trying to break through the propaganda messages of peace and prosperity… the voice of an insurrection.



Chip and putt your way through beautiful golf courses floating far above the smog-covered streets below. Play through the unique story mode courses to uncover the mystery of the Verti-sphere. Enjoy 54 classic holes ranging from simple miniputt to mind-bending courses that will test even the most skilled golfers, as well a driving range and race challenges.



Take on these insane obstacle courses filled with hazards and contraptions. Look through the eyes of your mechanical hummingbird companion to explore and unlock the secrets of the green. Use the jewel encrusted beetle to control your ball once it’s in motion and make good use of your limited rewind power to redeem yourself from a bad shot.



What's better than a leisurely round of golf in the sky? A leisurely round of golf in the sky with up to three friends, of course! All the courses can be enjoyed in multiplayer either locally or online. There are also two more unusual multiplayer modes to enjoy: race each other to the finish on the race tracks or fight over control of the holes in the unique battle golf arenas whilst using a variety of offensive weapons to disrupt your opponents.



A fully featured map editor means you can design your own fiendish courses and share them with the community. Who knows what the mad inventors of you will come up with? For the more aesthetically inclined you can tinker for hours with the look of your clubs, your mechanical hummingbird companion and your avatar in Frolich's Emporium.

Vertiginous Golf, is a puzzle golf game I recently got during the free giveaway event. The game couples relaxing music and visuals with golfing and physics puzzle based gameplay. The world is fantastical and steampunk, this is not a game for someone looking for a legitimate golf sim type of game.

Vertiginous Golf comes with a level creator as well! You can share these custom courses with other players custom course menu. You can even play these courses in the online multiplayer. A few other things to note are the neat interactive menus in the game, and the character customization, both are neat additions and not something I would expect coming into a game like this.

I can freely say that I have not played much of Vertiginous yet, but I enjoy the gameplay it offers. I haven't tried much of multiplayer but the population seems to be fairly small, its not surprising since I had not heard of this game until it was offered free for a day. I would recommend this game to fans of puzzle games, or even golf games, as long as they can tolerate the more fantastical feeling offered here.

Vertiginous Golf is a game that will either grow on you…or it wont. When I first started playing this game, I got very frustrated with it very quickly. Over time, I learned some of the different features it has to offer, so I experimented with some of these other features before returning to the base part of the game.

When you first start playing this game, you have a few different options. There are various 1 player modes, as well as multi player modes to choose from. I started by playing the regular mini putt holes, and worked my way up to playing these holes with the multi player mode. I will say, the holes get drastically more difficult and complex as you move on. Sometimes, in my opinion, the par the holes are set at can be unreasonable, but with that aside, the holes do range in difficulties.

This game also gives you a build your own hole option, which I found to be rewarding, because I could take some of my frustrations out that I had with the game, on the self created holes. Some of the obstacles I previously found aggravating and just downright cruel, became amusing in the close to impossible holes I created for myself.

NOTE: I got this game for free during a special event, so I recommend this game when it is on sale for a low price. If I were to have actually spent a chunk of change on this game, I would have rated it differently. As I mentioned before, MANY of the holes built into this game leave you asking yourself “how is it even possible to get it in that many strokes?” or “this hole isn’t even fair!” As I stated earlier in my review however, I changed my attitude with this game because I play it now more as a humorous experiment, instead of a serious challenge.

Not a fan of the steampunk theme of this game, haven't played much of the single player / story (you can probably guess it's average from the other reviews). I purely recommend this game because of the multiplayer. Me and my friends have been playing these recently and it is insanely fun, especially with weapons. The networking is pretty good and haven't experience any lag on my 2Mbps connection. Level creator is also good but the UI is average.

TL;DR Fun game, pick it up if you can spare the money or wait for it to go on sale
