Indie developer Afterburn’s puzzle/golf hybrid, Golf Peaks, is getting a whopping new update later this month that adds 12 extra hard courses to tackle. The new levels are totally free, and you can expect to see version 3.0 launch on August 13th.
The announcement of more content for Golf Peak, a previous Big Indie Pitch winner, is great news for puzzle fans. If you’ve not tried it out yet, it’s maybe best described as a turn-based puzzler where you’re given a handful of pre-selected moves to make. The “moves” in this case are swings of your putter.
It sounds like something that shouldn’t really work, and yet it absolutely does. I suppose it helps that it looks really quite nice, with a clean aesthetic that mixes impressive design with functionality. It’s also worth noting that you don’t have to be a fan of golf to enjoy this one – lord knows I have no interest in the sport, and yet I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Golf Peaks when I played it last year.
Our sister site, Pocket Gamer, reviewed it at launch, praising it for its visuals and smart design.
So, if you fancy checking it out, you’ll find Golf Peaks available now for download over on both the App Store and Google Play. It’s currently priced at $2.99, with no intrusive ads or IAPs to bother you. Oh, and be sure to check out Afterburn’s latest game, inbento, which is a cutesy food-themed puzzler.
