Fred Couples Golf (Sega Game Gear, 1994)
|Fred Couples Golf features four playable golfers, each individually rated in power and skill, a choice of four caddies, and competition on four courses. Choose the direction of your shot from an overhead view of the selected course. The swing interface first involves holding down a button as a vertical power meter rises. Once the desired power is established, a dot will automatically travel across a zoomed-in image of a golf ball. Tapping a button when the dot is in the preferred location will initiate your golfer's swing, displayed in a pop-up window in the center of the screen. Three play modes include Tournament, Match Play, and Stroke Play.
The player chooses from four generic golf courses and must compete in either a tournament, stroke play, or match play. Each golfer has his/her unique strengths and weaknesses. Names can be changed in addition to shirt color and the difficulty level. Through a Game Gear link, four players can play at once. Fred Couples, the famous golfer that endorsed the game, can only be used as an opponent. He is not available as either a teammate or as a playable character.
While the ball is on the ground, the player is shown an overhead view and must analyze it before swinging the golf club. The player can also choose a caddie as well. A password is given every time the player advances in the tournament.
