So, this is the screen that greets you when you start Everybody's Golf.  I'll run through quickly on what you can find under each section!

 

Single Player

  • Challenge
  • Stroke
  • Training

Challenge

 

EBGphoto_2_1.jpg

 

EBGphoto_13.jpg

 

This is where a majority of the game is unlocked, you are awarded points on a scale depending on where you finish, so finishing first will always achieve the biggest reward! In the top image you will notice stars and crowns, a star shows that you have finished first, a crown denotes you have won and achieved a pre-set objective for that challenge, so for example, the crown requirements for challenge 1-1 is to win with over 2000 points. Earning crowns gain bonus points and after collecting a few, will unlock characters in new outfits.

 

Points are increadibly important as this is used for currency in the shop!

 

You also unlock new shop items like new clubs/balls/ outfits etc by playing this mode.

But why does it only come up with the GIR points if I hit the green in 3 under par and Par Pace if I hit 2 under?

Not sure why Clap Hanz decided to only notify GIR on 3 under par ? The Crowns are most definitely won by hitting Par Pace though.

I've got most of the crowns but the one that's going to kill me is 2-1: Perfect impact on at least 50% of strokes. I really don't see how I can achieve that except by slogging away at it, over and over again until after about 50 goes I fluke it. :(

 

I usually get between 20 and 40. Averaging 33% pretty consistently.

 

 

 

 

Not that that will stop me, of course... ;)

I'm trying to work through the 'easy' (for me anway) crowns first. I've only got 5. A couple were total flukes. I just played through the rounds and at the end the crowns came up

The only advice I can give for this is to Max your character that you feel most comfortable with 'impact wise'.

 

I could be wrong, but it seems that when using a maxed out character there is more leniency when aiming for a perfect impact - almost as if every now and then it auto corrects the impact for you if you are ever so slightly too quick or too slow.

Well, to continue the thread, I did eventually get the crown for lvl 2-1. Last one I got apart from the final challenge. :D

 

 

More interestingly, found this article on andriasang listing the additions that we may hope to see with version 1.04 coming very soon. I do hope it's accurate! Who's up for a Vita EG league? :)

 


Versus Rooms

Players can create rooms where they freely set match type, course and other rules. The game supports rounds with eight players playing simultaneously. You'll be able to engage in voice chat as you face off against your friends.

 

Grade System Added to Real Tournament Mode

Real Tournament Mode will now have a four level grade system, allowing you to face off against players who are close to your level.

 

Tour System Added to Daily National Tournament Mode

The Daily National Tournament mode will feature a tour system where you take part in one week tours. Each tour will begin on Tuesdays. Tournaments will be held daily through Sunday, with the results announced on Monday.

There are 24. :) The last one only becomes available after you've unlocked pretty much everything else.
