Golf Skies

Golf Skies reimagines that sport of hitting a ball towards a distant hole by locating its courses in the sky. Fairways become little islands dotted about floating planets. Hazards include the usual - rough, trees, water - but also lighthouses and windmills sticking out of the tiny planets, and massive fish leaping about.

After you’ve used an arrow to determine your shot’s direction and strength, two arrows allow you to direct your ball while a power counter ticks down. Land before it runs dry or your ball will head toward the nearest body - often resulting in a penalty.

In all, this is a fresh take on golf, combining the relaxing and open nature of the real-world sport with a novel and airy approach.
