About: A story-driven 2D sidescrolling golf pirate adventure skill game.

###
- IMPORTANT NOTE ON THE MEDALS:

Sorry, the game doesn't tell you during your first play: You MUST NOT RESTART a hole in order to get a medal for you shooting count!

- Didn't you get a medal for your newgrounds account that you earned in the game?

It sometimes happens that the game looses connection to newgrounds while playing, so I resubmit all your medals to NG every time you load the page and start a round afterwards... SO JUST RELOAD THE PAGE, START A ROUD, RELOAD PAGE AGAIN. YOUR MEDALS SHOULD BE AT NEWGROUNDS SOON ;) (I needed to reload twice, but it worked...)

Hi there, I'm really happy to put the game on newgrounds!

Pirate Golf Adventure is a story-driven 2D sidescrolling golf pirate adventure skill game. Pass the golf ball through eight holes and help the shipwrecked pirate Caribo to escape from the island!

It's the first game I did so please don't be too hard with your ratings ;).

I know, the game is a little short (the levels took like forever to create...), but I hope it gives you a little casual fun for some minutes :)

INSTRUCTIONS:
- Aim with mouse.
- Shoot ball by clicking and holding.
- Look around using WASD or arrow keys.
- ESC: pause menu

Thanks a lot to Mike and Tom for your great help with the API!

Now I hope you enjoy the game :)

????????

can someone please tell me were th hidden room is



it was OK

i hate not bein able to replay a level for a better score that can give a medal ...


headjump responds:

but in "real golf" you also just can't just restart a hole to get a better overall score ;) - I know it's really hard to get the golden anchor... I didn't want it to be that hard! But I can't change it now cause there really are players who earned the medal! And making it easier now would be like cheating on them...


It was neat.

I really enjoyed it, but I got pretty mad at the end when the game tells you that you can only get the low-shot achievements by not using a restart. The medals definitely didn't say that on the main page, so I just wasted a few minutes doing a run with exactly 25 shots with restarts.

Oh, sorry, you're right! for me (well - I developed it) it was clear that you aren't allowed to restart - never thought that the medals descriptions doesn't make it clear! Sorry the game "tricked" you :(


Help for the Frusterated

First off to the author, great way to take something simple and make it challenging, entertaining. and incredibly frustrating!! That being said this is a game that is easy to learn and hard to master.

So for everyone who wanted to scream when the ball didnt go in the freaking hole, im gonna pass on some advice for the communal progression of the game.
(These are my personal best just trying to give you an idea of what can be done they are ranked from HNDCP 1 being hardest to 8 being easiest)
Hole 1 (HNDCP 7)
Can be accomplished with one shot and still pick up 6 coins
}}Running total (RT) 43K-1 shot}}

Hole 2 (HNDCP 8)
Can also be accomplished with one shot although i can only get 3 coins
{{RT 83K-2 Shots}}

Hole 3
This one always takes me 3 shots-Normally get 7 coins...can probably get more
{{RT 121K-5 shots}}

Hole 4 (HNDCP 6)
Easily done with 2 shots (cant figure out how to spare the damn crocodile, i think it has something to do with hitting the horizontal plank up but who knows!?)
Can normally pick up 4 coins sometimes more {{RT 159K-7 Shots}}

Hole 5 (HNDCP 2)
This one ideally only takes 3(up to the plank, knock the tree over, into the hole) shots but i almost always walk away with a 4/5
Normally get 4-5 coins
{{RT 194K-10 shots}}

Hole 6 (HNDCP)
Another 3 shot for me...(one into the whale with the right angle, one up and out, final into the hole) 4-5 coins on average {{RT 229K-13 shots}}

Hole 7 (HNDCP 1) (THE BAIN OF MY EXISTENCE)
So i am sure you can get less than the this...but the best i have ever done is 5 (across the lava, up onto the ridge, into the fan, up the rock face, into the hole)
Someone said it earlier but yes search this level carefully there is a goody here!
Coins-a ton! {{{RT Over 250K-18 shots}}}}

Hole 8 (HNDCP 5)
Easy up and out with 3 shots here!
Total 21 shots over 250K YAY WE DID IT
Now if only i could make it happen without messing up.

Just a few hints. Separate your quests. Sometimes getting points is worth taking more shots. If you can pick up 4 coins its worth it to take the extra shot)
Either go for shots or go for points.

Secondly, get consistent. Learn your angles...keep practicing Holes one and two until you nail them both hole in ones. Its tough but it really takes the pressure off down the road for both points and shot achievements. Also learn how to always get your two shot from the croc level.

Finally, if you learn how to spare the damn croc let me know cause i want to scream trying to get this one!

Thanks four your great guide :) The mercy-thing: it really is a little tricky, you can get past the bridge without tumbling it down. I found a vid at youtube that shows it:

hope this is helpful :)


Fun

This game was very fun. I'm not very good but, I found myself going back to trya and get the awards. You should include a restart option though.


headjump responds:

you can restart a hole or the entire game in the pause menu (hit [ESC] to open it)
BUT you won't get any medals for your shooting count if you use restarts :P
