When you think of someone playing ‘sport’ with extraterrestrial bodies, it’s usually a colossal alien potting them into black holes, like Ernie Els crossed with Galactus.
But Astro Golf is far more sedate, as you smack a ball between planets in a single-screen solar system that whirls off to somewhere new when you complete a hole. With its minimalist vibe, drag-based controls and endless nature, there’s more than a hint of mobile classic Desert Golfing about this title. But it differentiates itself through endearingly weird gravity-aided ball-smackage (slingshots aplenty!) and an entertainingly tricky ‘hard’ mode that forces you to get a hole in one in order to progress – every single time.
