Windows Phone Game Review: Bonsai Golf Coral

Bonsai Golf Coral

Bonsai Golf is one of the more artistically rendered golf games for your Windows Phone. Bonsai Golf Coral takes the course continues the artistic nature of Bonsai golf taking you to an underwater setting, playing golf around colorful coral formations.

Bonsai Golf Coral isn't just a nice looking golf course. While the holes are nicely drawn up, they can be challenging as well.  Bonsai Golf Coral may not be your traditional game of golf for your Windows Phone but it can be an entertaining way to pass the time with.

Bonsai Golf Coral is an eighteen hole course that you play for points instead of strokes. You're still trying to hole out in as few a strokes as possible but you have orbs that can be collected for points. Orbs vary in value by size (larger orbs mean more points) and for each stroke under par, you earn three points.

Bonsai Golf Coral

Game controls are the same as you find on Bonsai Golf with a virtual joystick that controls your aim and power. A directional arrow will appear showing you the direction and power. Just slide the joystick left/right and forward to set the power. When you have everything lined up just right, tap the joystick to take your shot.

Your point of view can be adjusted on each hole by touch. There are four achievements to earn with Bonsai Golf Coral and each hole can be played individually or you can play the course in a traditional 18 hole round. Sound effects are inline with the underwater theme and can be rather relaxing.

I've gotta admit that the controls with Bonsai Golf Coral takes a little while to get used to. The inclination is to pull back on the joystick to set the power. It takes about two-three holes to get the hang of things.

Bonsai Golf Coral is an artistically drawn out game of golf that is rather challenging. The joystick controls takes a few holes to get used to but once you do, the design lends itself to one handed play.

There is a free trial version available for Bonsai Golf Coral to let you try things out before buying. The full version of Bonsai Golf Coral is running $.99 and you can find it all here at the Windows Phone Store.
