No, Mani Golf sadly isn't a new EA franchise starring the bassist out of Primal Scream – Mani Golf is a kickass little cartoony golf game, and if you know us then you know we don't often use 'kickass' and 'golf' in the same sentence.
Mani Golf looks deceptively childlike – you play as a bright orange alien in a very simplistic environment, and wind-speed and hooking and slicing have all been dropped in favour of the twin controls of angle and power. So far so easy, but then Mani Golf goes and punches you in the face with its fiendish course design. After a couple of easy levels, Mani Golf absolutely hits you where it hurts, with impossible slopes, bunkers and multi-level courses that will see you try to push your golf ball vertically up through the tiniest of gaps. It's just insanely difficult. Or maybe it's just us – the Mani Golf leaderboards are always on full display throughout your game, and however anyone managed to get round Mani Golf in 14 under is beyond us. If you can even get round Mani Golf in par, you're obviously far superior to us.
