Grazy Golf

Crazy it certainly is, a game full of frustration, as you see your ball bounce around the walls, usually ending up right back where you started.

The game starts off with some pretty graphics, and a short burst of music (I'll name that tune in three) and by pressing the space bar, lo and behold the first hole appears, with its par shown at the bottom of the screen. Joystick compatible, you aim your golf club, set the power level of the stroke and watch your ball go.

The colours are bright, although it is often difficult to see the ball during the eighteen gruelling holes, all with seemingly impossible pars to equal, but my young next door neighbour took to it like a duck to water, and beat my round of 207 (classed as useless at the end), from a possible par of 137, if my arithmetic is right.

All in all, a game for those who are certified, or like to indulge in frustration, but the youngsters certainly enjoyed it.
