Battle Golfer Yui (バトルゴルファー唯?, "Battle Golfer Yui") is 1991 Japan-exclusive golfing game developed by Santos and published by Sega for the Mega Drive in 1991.

Gameplay[edit]

The game essentially combines a traditional golf tournament with a plot by a mad professor to take over the world while using that golf tournament as its legitimate front. Yui Mizuhara and Ran Ryuzaki are two normal high school girls who are excellent at golf so they get drafted for this assignment. They are abducted by Professor G, but Yui is liberated before he can brainwash her into his organization.

Players can talk to their opponents before teeing against them in oddly-themed golf courses. Special abilities can be invoked at a certain cost to the attribute that is the equivalent of magic points in standard role-playing games.

Reception[edit]

The game was poorly received in the West, including being given the reviewb scores of 28/50 by ASM[1] and 35% by Joystick.[2] Retrospectively, Sega-16 rated it a 5 out of 10.[3]
