GolfNet Online 3.0 represents the final word in past generation mini golf simulator simulation. Playable both online with the GolfNet Online 3.0 Network Edition and in person with a real golf club and the GolfNet Online 3.0 Arcade Cabinet featuring gigantic-mini-golfball-button technology.
Rather than accurately simulating minigolf itself, the objective of the project was to produce a funny arcade cabinet that simulated the simple golf simulators that I encountered in my childhood. In GolfNet Online 3.0 the player hits the in-game ball by striking a real life giant-mini-golf-ball with a real golf club. I made the graphics for GolfNet Online 3.0 using the original pattern set from MacPaint. Using these monochrome patterns exclusively was an excellent design constraint which made the process of constructing the game a lot of fun.
