Playfish's Growing Hit: Minigolf on Facebook

Golf video games can leave a lot to be desired, depending on the level of involvement and the type of video game you’re playing. But Playfish’s Minigolf Party Facebook app has simplified the video golf game enough to make it fun and addictive in an extremely casual game setting. There’s still enough room for skilled players to up the ante, yet easy enough to get started even if you’re not the most talented of players.

Depending on the amount of time you have to play Minigolf, there is an option to play either a single hole or all holes in the course, highlighting the Playfish’s dedication to the definition of casual gaming. To make things a bit more interesting for this putt-putt golf game, you’ll also be able to collect coins as you hit the ball through the course. Coins collected can be your saving grace, if you’re like me and too slow and bad at minigolf to earn points in the “conventional” par scoring system.
