Guardians Of Lodino Forest (or G.O.L.F.) is an awesome blend of third person bullet hell arcade action and golf, where you actively have to shoot it into submission before you can hit it!
The aim of the game in Guardians Of Lodino Forest is much the same as any other golf game – hit the ball into the hole in as few strokes as possible. However, the ball in question doesn’t want to “play ball”, and would much rather attack you using a variety of bullet hell patterns. This means that you have to dodge its fire and subdue it with your hybrid golf club assault rifle before you can even try to take a swing at it.
Once subdued, taking your swing is actually quite similar to a traditional game of golf, with you holding the swing button and releasing when it’s in the center. The further away from the hole you are the more accurate you’ll have to be and if you miss then you’ll have to subdue the ball before you can hit it again.
It’s a great mash up of two genres that shouldn’t work but somehow does. The simple retro visuals work well and make it feel a little like Space Harrier, but with 360° movement and a massive killer golf ball to deal with. A fun golfing game where you try to get a hole in on while it tries to put a hole in you!
