Description from the packaging.

Mini-Putt: The wackiest miniature golf game in the world !

If you're looking for a lighthearted and relaxing miniature golf game for your computer, then you're holding the wrong box, duffer.

The wizards as Accolade have spared no expense in an effort to drive you crazy. Mini-Putt is the ultimate miniature golf challenge; a magical, animated "Golf-O-Rama: filled with pee-wee putting pandemonium that not only tests your skills… it tests your sanity.

In Mini-Putt you can expect the unexpected. Each looney link was designed to have you ricocheting off the walls. Obstacles and hazards can spring to life. A serene green can gobble up your golf ball. Can your nerves take it or will your putter flutter?

Remember, if your game is on, Mini-Putt can be "Fantasyland." If your game is off, Mini-Putt can be "No Man's Land".

"Ah, the 'ol windmill trick, eh?" Well you can bet your knickers that this windmill hole has a few well-placed surprises than can iron the dimples out of your golf ball. Your gonna need all the help you can get. So, Accolade gives you a sporting chance with a three-window overview of the hole, including a close up of Mini-Putt Pete- the hacker you embody as you romp around the course.

Mini-Putt's infamous Killer Castle is a hole that has been known to make many a pee-wee putter panic. You've got to putt through the castle walls, over a draw bridge, (could there be something lurking in that moat?) and on to a green that's about as smooth as the lunar surface. Whew! At least Accolade shows some compassion by providing gradation arrows to indicate the slope of the green.

A word of advice. Remove all breakables from arms reach while playing Mini-Putt. It can make you golf goofy… especially when you 8 putt a par 1. Please note spunky little Mini-Putt Pete down in the lower left window of the screen. He's not a happy fellow. In fact, he's just snapped his putter over his knee. This is not a very sportsman-like gesture… so please, avoid this practice at home.

Accolade's Mini-Putt. Straightjacket not included.
