We can finally reveal that yes, Cursed to Golf will be released on August 18th and will be available from day one on the PS5 and PS4 golf station! As lifelong PlayStation Fans, we couldn’t be happier if PlayStation players join us in the depths of Golf purgatory. So, what about Cursed Golf? Well, it’s a “Golf-Like,” which means it’s kind of like a 2D side-scrolling golf game with genre-twisting Roguelike elements. Does that sound like a funny Combination?
Welcome to the Purgatory of Golf
In Cursed to Golf, you play as a future golf champion who tragically dies just as he is about to win a tournament. Instead of going to heaven (or hell), they are in purgatory. Once there, a stocky appearance informs you that you … Damn it! But not everything is bad, if you can play golf through the ever-changing 18-hole course, you can come back to life. In the great Tradition of every adventure story, no one has done it before, but hey, this time things could be different. If you fail in a hole, be prepared for your annoying curse to take you back to the beginning of the course so that you can start over.
Golf in the Land of the Dead is very different from the Sport we all know and love. To begin with, the course consists of 18 holes, but every time you hit, the holes are randomly chosen from more than 70 handmade holes to create a fresh space. The holes are in the form of a dungeon, often with several paths leading to the flag in different directions, with all kinds of traps and peril. Some, like Water and bunkers, you’ve probably already seen, but there are also grave robbers, deadly thorns, explosive TNT boxes and more to stop you in Your tracks. The course also covers 4 biomes: purgatory, desert, caves and hell, which add unique twists depending on the theme. In addition, you only have 5 moves to reach the flag. Damn, this curse is not playing!
An Ace in the Hole
However, we are not entirely angry, there are of course many ways to gain an advantage through this difficult course. In addition to the peril, the holes are also littered with useful items.Shooting idols are a blessing from the god of the Gulf and give you extra hits when you crush them, teleporters bring you closer to the flag, even TNT boxes can sometimes hide shortcuts if you blow them up correctly! In addition, ACE cards give you fantastic disposable abilities that you could never use in real life. Go back in time with a Mulligan, freeze the water with the ice ball, Guide your ball to the target with the rocket ball, get out of difficult situations with a portal and explode your ball in three parts with the scattered shot. These are just some of the more than 20 Power-Ups that you can access.
Plan Your Course
Between the holes, you can go around the map with your golf cart. On the way to the next hole, you can see Treasure chests or packs of cards. You might meet a completely unshaded guy who will meet you on forks on the street and help you choose a path. It’s always a good idea to head to the Eterni Tea Shop to buy card boosters, change outfits, or keep a few special cards on file so they can survive between races. There is also a convenient green on which you have unlimited moves and access to all previously unlocked ace cards. This area is a great place to try crazy shots and tactics. Try stacking up to three ace cards on top of each other in one move and see how far you can push the mechanics. After all, the game has no limits ™ ;).
