We all know the game of golf. You choose a club, weigh up your options strike the ball within the best of your abilities to meet the target you set yourself then you see how you’ve done and the cycle starts again. The key rule is simple: get the ball in the hole in the least shots possible.
In Moonshot Galaxy, the game formerly known as Galaxy Golf on Oculus Rift, Gear VR, and HTC Vive, things are a little big more tricky as you take on puzzling courses that aren’t just one hole but a one whole planet! Needless to say it’s a little bit more complicated here than just sinking a putt. Players will need to navigate obstacles with their ball, chip it onto platforms with pinpoint accuracy and find creative ways around hazards more bothersome than a mere bunker or small pond.
Revealed earlier this week as not only getting a name change but a new home on the PlayStation VR, developers Liftoff Labs (the virtual, mixed and augmented reality studio of Big Fish Games), have released a new launch trailer for the new version of the game where you can see things put into practice, which you can see below. Among the updates for its debut on console are a more difficult ‘pro mode’. Studio Director Mars Jokela described the team’s goal for Moonshot Galaxy whilst in development as wanting “a game that was highly replayable and challenging to master.”
