Version 2.0 Update: 

  • Balls are always coloured
  • Balls can be bounced before the game starts by pressing button
  • Course is 9 holes, not 18
  • Game starts automatically once second player joins (with ten second delay for more people to join). Game automatically returns to menu at end of game.
  • Ball can now be charged up even more to account for some mountains previously being impossible (this also makes it more possible that the leading player will overshoot and kill themselves)


With apologies to Desert Golfing and One Button Nipple Golf. Both these games are great and more worthy of your time than this one.

This is a real-time, one-button, multiplayer take on Desert Golfing for up to 26* players.  Hold your button to charge and aim, release to hit. Winner is first to sink Hole 9 or the last one left standing after everyone else falls off the edge of the screen (the camera follows the current winner).

Arrow next to the letter at bottom of the screen points towards your next hole.

Custom settings to make balls able to collide with other balls, or turn on a single-player mode that disables the 'last one left alive' victory condition. 

The levels are procedurally generated and I don't guarantee they will always be possible. Massive thanks to Greg Quincey for showing me how to create the level generation system.

WARNING: Most keyboards don't actually allow 26 simultaneous button presses. In which case, you should probably only play with as many players as your keyboard allows. Unless you want an extra challenge and some wrestling. You can also try plugging in multiple USB keyboards as that gets around the maximum key presses issue. 

(In 2017 I am challenging myself to make 50 little videogames to get more familiar with the tools. I make no guarantee that any of the games are good, but that's not really the point. This is game #22 of 50.)

SUPER FUN! If you want multiplayer then play this! Wait wait singleplayer lonely people! You can play single player too!

A lot of fun, congrats

good work, keogh

I can confirm that it works on Windows 10 (64 bit). 

I like the multiplayer mechanic where players are eliminated if they can't keep up. 

Great that it supports so many local players :-)

If you ever find the time to get back to this game it would be interesting to see how it would play with a "Scorch went bonkers" one button control scheme. (http://wasyl.eu/games/scorch-went-bonkers.html)

Good work! And good luck with the next 28 games for this year :-)

Thank you! Using this for a Worms-esque artillery games sounds like a great idea, actually. I'll put that on the ideas board :)
