Alphaputt is that beautiful place where typography meets crazy golf. Putt your way through the alphabet, complete your own wordy courses and challenge your friends. Just watch out for the UFOs. And the vacuum cleaners.
● Multiplayer (1-4 players)
● 30 levels, infinite courses
● Different game modes
Alphaputt is our typographic take on the classic mini-golf course. Up to 4 players can play on the same device.
There are 30 beautifully designed levels, one for each letter of the alphabet – from A for Airport to Z for Zen Garden. Each has its own soundscape and unique theme which brings its own gameplay challenges.
The intuitive shot system and minimal controls make sure the letters are the true protagonists of the scene. Players can move around them to get the best angle, set direction and adjust power.
Players can create personalised courses by typing in the words they want to play or tackle randomly generated ones. Individuals can also take the par-fection challenge by attempting to complete the entire alphabet under par.
There are virtually endless combinations and challenges that can be set, making Alphaputt a game you will want to play again and again.

Beautiful miniature letterform holes that make you want to zoom in for a closer look. Interesting themes and a few novel mechanics thrown in too to keep you on your toes. Good sense of humour in the writing, and a clean minimalist vibe to it all.
The main downside for me is that whilst the word play structure is fun for discovering each letter, it feels a bit flat and unchallenging after a few goes of each hole. The Parfection mode is a touch frustrating as certain holes require a heady mix of precise placement *and* a big dollop of luck simultaneously (“E”, I’m looking at you!) so it’s hard to stay engaged in.
Haven’t tried multiplayer yet, but for single player perhaps some other modes or challenges would keep it interesting longer term.
Overall, still a great thing, glad to have played it.

Hi J-Daaawg, many thanks for your review - we're really glad you're enjoying the game! We added zoom with the last update and hopefully we'll be able to address some of the other observations with the next updates.
App looks great and it’s a good start but feels like it released before there was enough playtesting. The basic mechanic of putting is ok, nothing particularly novel, but it works. But there are just too many frustrations to make the game truly rewarding.
For example, hitting a shot a fraction too hard sends the ball bouncing off the too-low rims around the hole. It would seem to make more sense if, by the time you make it through all the obstacles on the level, the final drop into the hole is actually fairly straightforward.
After all, the satisfaction here comes from dodging the things ON the course, not battling with a short, awkward putt right at the end.
I get they they’re apparently making one of those ‘super hard, go for perfection’ games but if it quickly becomes a drag, I’m not sure there’s enough incentive to continue trying.
General updates like being able to see which words you’ve completed, turn off the music but leave on the sfx, zoom in to see the course detail, etc etc would all improve the experience. Like I said, the fact they’re not there yet suggests there was not enough testing before release.

Hi Billy, thank you for your feedback. Hopefully we'll be able to address some of your comments with the next updates.
I played through to ‘K’ before getting my ball stuck in an awkward position and decided to restart the level. “Are you sure?” asked the game. “Yep” I said, confident that it absolutely was not going to restart my entire run from scratch. Why would it?
