Sports action, classic anime-inspired cutscenes, towering robots and all the puns you could shake a club at: it’s 100ft Robot Golf.
100ft Robot Golf comes to us from No Goblin, a tiny two-person indie formed by the effervescent Panzer with former Harmonix and Twisted Pixel designer Dan Teasdale. You may remember this brand also gave the world Roundabout, which I love.
The basic gameplay is golf, but you are in a 100ft robot – and that means the landscape plays the role of temporary obstruction rather than hard boundary.
Out now on PS4 via the PlayStation Store, 100ft Robot Golf is PlayStation VR compatible – but somehow, that’s not the stand-out feature here. Even the four-player splitscreen, a rare beast in modern gaming, falls behind such important inclusions as a joke dispenser.
Inspired by classic anime and with a gloriously colourful cast of pilots and robots alike, it includes a pleasant amount of corgi and even brings about the return of No Goblin’s most beloved skeleton. What’s not to like? I am yet to play this highly desirable beast but it is very much On The List.
