3D Ultra Minigolf Adventures is an arcade style golf title, developed by Wanako Studios. The game has 36 holes, a customizable course editor and multiplayer function for up to 4 players. Its sequel, 3D Ultra Minigolf Adventures 2, was released on October 27, 2010.

Development history[edit]

3D Ultra Minigolf Adventures was originally created in 2000, as a sequel to 3D Ultra Minigolf Deluxe, titled Mini Golf Maniacs for PC and PlayStation 2, which also was made by Sierra Online. In 2001, the Dynamix game division in charge of making the game was shut down by parent company Sierra Online. The game, while nearly finished, went unreleased for five years until Wanako Studios completed development of the game in 2006.

The majority of the original game still exists in Minigolf Adventures, with graphical tweaks to the existing holes, replacement of the original animal characters with human players, and other hole additions. Original in-game photos from Minigolf Maniacs, which are the base of Minigolf Adventures can be found here.

Lost Island expansion pack[edit]

On July 25, 2007, the Lost Island expansion pack was released, adding an additional eighteen hole course.
