    Chuhai Labs signs an original “golflike” that will delight fans of retro-style two-dimensional platformers.

    Nicely processed mix of golf, puzzle and unconventional story. The options with tricks and traps are nicely resolved, but the levels are too similar and some are unnecessarily hard.

    Cursed to Golf will make you sweat, bewitching you with its pixel art, surrounding you with its irony and then annihilating you with its lack of permissiveness. If you want to try to dominate the cursed fields of the Purgatory of Golf, arm yourself with patience and time, if instead you think that your life has already given you excessive stress then maybe you should not look at the original interpretation of Chuhai Labs of the noble sport.

    Cursed to Golf has so many good ideas that never truly come together. I never really cared about the story; all I was left with was a zany roguelike golf game. Random glitches aside, I could help but feel cheated no matter how much time I invested. Still, it’s undeniably clever, and the puzzle nature of the courses have you mastering your form to get through purgatory as quickly as possible.

    Even with Cursed to Golf’s punishing difficulty, I’ve found myself getting closer and closer to the vaunted 18th hole on each run, with no desire to stop until I’ve reclaimed my mortality. It’s a testament to the craft of developer Chuhai Labs, which was willing to take such risks with such a proven formula that I haven’t stopped even after several punishing deaths. And I won’t stop until I finally remove this dreaded albatross from my neck.
  2. Cursed To Golf has plenty of visual charm, and elements taken from its Flash game origins feel like a fun throwback. Unfortunately, though, it’s a bit of a swing and a miss for its roguelike elements.

    The game is very addictive and fun, but I found it excessively hard. It has that old school look and is cute to look at. So you can think it'sThe game is very addictive and fun, but I found it excessively hard. It has that old school look and is cute to look at. So you can think it's for children but no, it is not. The golf mechanic is there but some design on the levels cage you in some very small corners. Which makes the game frustrating and relying on trials and errors from generated levels. You need luck more then skills. I give 68% but I don't want to play it anymore. Full Review »
