Hammacher Schlemmer have produced a realistic golf video arcade game. The machine offers the user the best experience in miniature golf, and is similar to the machines found in popular arcade venues. The machine utilises real golf balls and real golf putters, whilst the courses are disaplyed virtually on screen, via the 32-inch LCD display. The game allows up to four players to participate at any one time, with two courses to choose from, the casino based Las Vegas course as well as the tiki torch orinted Paradise Island.
Shot controls include the ability to adjust the view, by panning left and right, and also the option to view from overhead, or directly behind the ball. Options which will allow you to plan the best route to the hall. As you make contact with the ball, and it approaches the screen, the machine calculates both the trajectory and position of the ball, with sound emitting from a trio of speakers.
The miniature golf arcade game looks brilliant, but the $6,900 price tag will be enough to deter most potential buyers. Also, it would have been nice to see a few more courses, as with only two courses, we're sure each shot can be mastered relatively quickly.
Everything about the Video Arcade Miniature Golf Game looks inviting except the hefty price of $6,900.
