It’s been a month or so since my last Download of the Week update, so I’ve had some time to contemplate the next entry: Neverputt
Neverputt is a 3D miniature golf game for 1-4 players. You are in the first-person hot-seat and must control the direction and velocity of the ball in order to be successful.
Whether you’d like to just relax and play a little putt-putt in peace, or challenge yourself with a bizarre combination of holes, Neverputt will not disappoint. It ships with seven different courses by default, ranging from easy to insanely difficult.
Many of the holes are similar to those you would see at a real miniature golf course, but some of the more complex holes provide pitfalls such as moving tiles and teleportation.
Neverputt is free software available for all currently supported versions of Ubuntu. For more information, please visit the project’s website on icculus. Please note that most of the information you find there will pertain to Neverputt’s better known big brother, Neverball.
