This weekend would be a great time to play a ground of golf. No need to pay for greens fees, club rentals, or overpriced drinks on these 18 holes, though: Wonderputt by DAMP GNAT lets you play as many rounds of golf as you want for free. As the cool tune and bright colors wash over you like a summer breeze, you’ll be facing off against an ever-changing course that pits you against aliens, submarines, and a even ski slope. The game mostly takes place on a single screen that morphs into the next hole after you sink your shot. Soothing music wafting over a playful environment soothes even the most irate golfer—but don’t take this for a simple putt on the greens. Wonderputt manages to challenge the player without punishing you for a couple of off strokes.
Gameplay is so easy that it will make 2015’s Tiger Woods look like 2000’s Tiger Woods. Moving the mouse around the ball causes an arrow to appear to indicate which direction you want it to move. Pulling your pointer farther away makes the hit even stronger. Once you’re ready for the little golden nugget to fly, just click the mouse. A virtual flag indicates where you need to aim as well as par for the course. Sink the shot and you’ll score points. Fewer shots means more points while hitting over your limit results in a lower score. Yes, this may be the only game of golf where you want the highest score as possible. Along with your time, you’ll get a final score at the end of the game as well as a snazzy bar graph to show you how well you did on each individual hole.
So why don’t you take some time off from your busy weekend (or impending Monday) to play a few rounds of Wonderputt? Post a screenshot of your highest score in the comment section below. Pro Tip: You unlock “wonders” after completing the first round of golf. Don’t ask what they are. Just know that they can give you more points to brag about down below.
