Mobile game OK Golf started rolling out on the Google Play Store on Tuesday and is now available for download in all parts of the world. Developed by Montreal, Canada-based Okidokico and published by Playdigious, OK Golf is said to be one of the most minimalist digital recreations of golf ever created. Unlike many other mobile golf games that are currently available on the market, this title eliminates nearly all unnecessary elements and focuses on the pure "essence" of the popular sport, its developers claim. There are no avatars, golf buddies, clubs, or heavy customization options in OK Golf. Instead, players are simply placed on one of the game's many courses and are left there with a ball to do as they please.
OK Golf features diorama-styled 3D graphics that are heavily stylized and don't require a lot of hardware resources to render, so the game should even work on older Android devices. The courses themselves are quite varied and range from traditional golfing locations to some highly exotic environments, many of which were inspired by real-world places. Okidokico claims that its latest mobile game is easy to get into but hard to master, which is a trait that most addictive mobile games boast. The control scheme of OK Golf is rather simple, as you only have to drag and release your finger to shoot the ball.
OK Golf initially launched on the iOS App Store this spring, though the Android port of the game seemingly features all of the content that was present in the original title. The game is priced at $2.99 and contains no in-app purchases, which is an increasingly unusual occurrence on the Google Play Store that's now filled with titles that utilize a free-to-play business model. Regardless, OK Golf allows you to unlock all of its maps and secret levels by simply playing the game and will never present you with any kind of ads or prompt you to spend more money. The game is compatible with most smartphones and tablets running Android 4.0.3 and newer versions of Google's operating system and can be purchased by following the link below.
