Out of curiosity, why are you doing category 2?

Oh my first playthrough I got to level 53 with 144 hits. These kinds of games are always fun, and you made it super quick!

It seems to me that some of the courses have quite a steep (pun intended) increase in difficulty.

They're randomly generated, so you can get unlucky and get some pretty nasty ones early on.

Too late for the compo, but not too late for posterity: made a small update to multiplayer to cycle the starting player, after realizing how much of a disadvantage it gave player 1 by having them always go first. (Now the current leader always goes first.)

I decided to port the game to FDS, just in case someone wants to play it that way. The game isn't any different, it's just rebuilt for the disk format.

Also a while back I made a "tournament edition" that makes the course generation deterministic and lets you specify a starting seed, in case you want to compete against others on a specific course.

Now on SNES: sNESert Golfing thread.

I also updated it to add the Tournament Edition capability to the regular ROM, so they don't have to be separate ROMs anymore. Just a quick input of a code on the title screen to activate.

It also has a soft-reset feature now. (Especially useful for tournament edition mode, where it will remember your seed.) Not sure if Action 53 vol 4 is still receiving updates, but this would be a small improvement.
