Review: Fun! Fun! Minigolf Touch! (eShop)

When I think of sports games, shovelware is usually the first word that comes to mind.  Some developers really do a great job at sports games, but others could really have spent some more time on actually making them enjoyable.  When I first read the name, Fun! Fun! Minigolf Touch!, I really didn’t expect much from it.  It’s a good idea to never judge a game from its title, because some of the best games have the most ridiculous titles you could imagine.  Is this the case with Fun! Fun! Minigolf Touch!? Read on to find out! -Greg Boe (admin)

Developers Shin’en Multimedia already have a great list of dowloadable games on Nintendo systems, but this i their first on the Nintendo eShop.  Shin’en has always done an amazing job with making their games look absolutely amazing on the system it’s on, and Fun! Fun! Minigolf Touch! is no exception to this fact.  The 3D visuals aren’t the best on the eShop, but sure do the job, and the textures and character movement is amazing. The controls are very simple, letting you focus more on the gameplay instead of the controls.

At first you can only play as either a boy or a girl, but you can go to the shop and unlock Mii characters after you earn enough cash in the game.  There are three different cups you have to play through at first: America Cup, Asia Cup, And Europe Cup.  After you complete those you’ll have the Pro Cups and Super Cups to play, which are just the same holes with more difficult obstacles and more money to earn.  I would have wanted more cups than just the same three at different difficulty levels, but I guess it’s fine how it is.

Even after beating all nine cups, you have three courses of Trick Shot, courses that let you show your skills and earn tons of cash while you’re at it.  That’s all the gameplay Fun! Fun! Minigolf Touch! has to offer, which is the only big let down about the game.  Of coarse it’s only $4.99 so you shouldn’t really expect a whole bunch of content, but the game still has many upgrades, special bonuses, and new golf clubs to unlock, so you’ll have fun getting all those.

Even with the nine cups, trick shots courses, and extra bonuses at the shop, Fun! Fun! Minigolf Touch! only took me 2 hours to play every last inch of the game and unlock all the extras.  This isn’t that bad considering the price and also the fact that it’s meant to be played in short sessions, but I would have rather payed a few more bucks if that meant more content for the game.  If you enjoy golf, Fun! Fun! Minigolf Touch! is the best there is on the Nintendo eShop, so download it today! Have any questions about the game? Feel free to share in the comments!

    Hey Greg! I’ve heard it a few times before on this site and Nintendo Power, but I’m wondering how you can rate a games 3D effect. I only have Mario Kart 7, The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time, 2 3D downloadable games, and the pre-installed software. I’ve heard allot of “This game’s 3D is quite good” and stuff and it was in this review to.

    P.S. I’m looking forward to you’re Kid Icarus Uprising review!☺

    Oh yeah, I forgot to say why I told you what games I have! It’s so you know that I have only experienced 3D in those games, and there’s no way of knowing if 3D is good if you’ve only played games with good or bad 3D!
