Planet Minigolf is a minigolf game that features 16 courses in 4 exotic locales, customizable characters & courses, online & local multiplayer, and PlayStation Move
support. Additionally, players have the ability to save replays and upload them to youtube
Many of the holes contain power-ups, which are located on the fairways, and are obtained by simply rolling into them with your ball. These power ups can help you navigate some of the trickier parts of the course, by doing things like making your ball lighter so it floats, making your ball a magnet so it gets sucked uphill, or even giving you control of your own ball, allowing you to steer it using the sixaxis tilt function
of your controller.
The game allows you to pick one of three control schemes. The first setting, called "easy", is a one-click method that allows you to pick the power of your shot by simply holding down the
button. The second setting is the popular "three-click method", where you press the
button 3 times to decide the power and accuracy of your shot. The third setting has you pull back and push forward on the left analog stick for power and accuracy.
A fourth control scheme is available using the PlayStation Move motion controller, which was patched into the game for free September 19th, 2010.
