Golf Rival is lightweight multiplayer game with custom clubs, custom balls, custom courses and thrilling competition with your friends and rivals all packed into your smart phones. The game mechanics are simple and easily understandable. You pick the spot where you want to ball to land. You pick the power of the ball and release the ball to strike.
One tricky part in Golf Rival is to balance the moving bar when releasing the ball to strike. You have to keep the moving needle in the bar as close to the center as possible when you are releasing the ball. Otherwise, your strike will not be perfect and you will find the ball leaning towards one side or the other after it has been struck.
As you defeat opponents, you are rewarded chests and trophies that can be used to unlock newer courses and get new clubs and balls. As you progress in the game, the difficulty level rises. Each new course brings its own new challenge. The second course brings with it, the wind challenge. The third course brings the power reduction challenge.
The terrain also affects your strikes in the game. If you are on a steep ground or if you’re in rough area or you’ve managed to land in the bunker, the power of your strikes can reduce dramatically and so can the direction of your ball. It looks like a simple game but once you start to get used to it, new challenges are introduced to keep you on your toes and keep things interesting. We have prepared this comprehensive Golf Rival guide to help you get the better of this game and your rivals. So let’s not waste any of your time, instead move on to our Golf Rival cheats, tips, tricks and hints to beat your rivals!
1. Plan Your Landings
When you are picking the spot you want to land onto, remember that your ball is going to bounce forward a couple of times and cover a few more feet. Don’t aim for the farthest spot possible because more often than not, your ball will bounce off the landing spot and into the rough terrain.
2. Focus On As Few Shots As Possible
When you are picking your first landing spot, plan your whole game. You want to get in line of the pin in as few shots as possible. The terrain is often twisted and steep. You can easily gain advantage over your rivals if you can reduce the number of shots you have to play. For example, if the course is ‘U’ shaped, the first thought that comes to mind is that you would need three shots to get in line with the pin. However, you can also just play the course in two shots if you don’t try to cover the course in straight lines. Think outside the box.
3. Aim High
Before every shot, check exactly how far you can reach. The game often tries to trick you into a “recommended” length of the shot. Always check if you can strike even father and get closer to the pin. When you are in rough terrain or in the bunker the game keeps the aim of your shot close. Do not let it fool you. You can easily extend your reach by dragging the aim farther.
4. Strike The Ball As Hard As You Can
When striking the ball, the game shows you a blue circled area as the recommended power for your shot. If you drag it back farther, the moving needle on the aiming bar goes insane. Don’t be scared though. That needle is not that difficult to tame. It only takes a few shots to figure out the needle’s movements. If you are able to understand how the needle moves, the next time you see a chance to strike with full power, you can easily surprise your opponents with your trump card and gain on them by striking with maximum power!
5. Pay Attention To Wind And Power
As you defeat opponents and gather trophies, you will unlock new courses. Each courses introduces a new challenge for you. So when you are picking the landing spot for your strike, take a moment to notice a wind or power reduction indications in the corners of your screen. Consider those stats when aiming your strike or your ball will keep going off course.
