Awesome Golf (Atari Lynx review)

Developer: Hand Made Software
Publisher: Atari Corporation
Released: 1991

Awesome Golf is a sports game that's exclusive to the Atari Lynx handheld.

+ The courses are expertly designed and it's impressive how their intricacies are graphically visualised before each shot.

+ Putting is intuitive (with a generous shot assist) and what's nice is that you can choose a Putter from outside the green.

+ Clear voice clips, four-player ComLynx support, and an overhead map that shows off the console's scaling capabilities.

- Power metre needs to scroll for you to see the full bar, which makes it a challenge to strike the ball with complete accuracy.

- Club distance isn't displayed in-game and having to consult the manual for guidance before every shot is a drag.

- Can often feel eerily quiet, as crowd sound effects and ambient noises are almost entirely absent.
