Golf-Puzzler Golf Peaks Launches For Nintendo Switch Today

After Golf Story debuted in 2017 and surprised just about everyone, one couldn’t help but wonder if they’d finally seen everything golf games had to offer. Golfing games have been around since the days of the NES, and many a flash game developer tried their hand at them during the format’s heyday. Everything should have been tried by now, and yet here is Golf Peak: a puzzle-focused golf game.

Golf Peaks is more about carefully planning out one’s shots than it is about trying to make them on skill alone. For each hole, players get a series of cards describing different shots they can take. There’s always a path to the hole somewhere in there, but it’s up to the player to find it. The trailer definitely makes this look like a different kind of golfing experience; hopefully it’s of the fun variety.

Golf Peaks is available now on Steam and Nintendo Switch
