3-D Ultra Minigolf
Sierra preceeded this game with 3-D Ultra Pinball
The game design is not what a good miniature golf game is like. Most miniature golf holes are designed to put the ball near the hole if you figure out the angles, similar to billiards. The Sierra game seems to be designed in some cases to put the ball far from the hole.
Many of the strokes you make initiate very cute animated sequences
Intricate hole design is attractive and in many cases enhances game play.
Multi-player FeaturesUp to four players can play the course at one time. You need to share the screen and wait your turn, just like real miniature golf. Network and internet play is planned but not implemented in this release.
