Pangya Fantasy Golf
By James Whittle
Fantasy and golf form a magical union in a new PlayStation Portable game that will entertain you for hours.
In Pangya: Fantasy Golf, gamers will be magically whisked away to the Inter-dimensional Pangya Invitational on Pangya Island, which boasts beautiful fairways.
Created by Korean game developer Ntreev Soft, Pangya features cute, anime-style 3D characters and some amazing Lewis Carroll-inspired environments.
The game features nine golf courses, along with 18 characters that can be customised with a wide range of fashionable gear.
There are also many outfits, accessories, clubs, balls, power items and so on that you can choose from.
There are several game modes for players - Story, Single Round, Licence, Tournament and Network Modes. In the last mode, a player can enjoy a multiplayer Ad Hoc game with seven of their friends.
The tutorial is short and easily understood and will have gamers on the green faster than a golf cart with a Ferrari engine in it. The game also gives you information and prompts that will help you to reduce the possibility of landing your ball in a bunker.
The Pangya shop allows you to purchase new clubs, balls, ability rings, clothes and magic potions. Ability rings can increase your statistics in power, control, accuracy, spin and curve. The magic potions can negate wind, increase luck, calm your nerves, and boost your strength and spin mastery.
At the Papel Shop, you can obtain rare accessory items through a lucky draw.
Prizes are often golf balls and potions, so don't gamble all your game credits away in the hope of getting a pair of rose-tinted glasses.
Pangya: Fantasy Golf will appeal to those who want to play a game where there is no threat of instant death lurking around each corner.
With a soothing soundtrack and simple control interface, it is a game everybody - from novices to hardcore gamers - can enjoy.
