In case you are a fan of golf, we have a mobile game that could be a real treat for you. Why? For starters, Happy Shots Golf was created by a group of designers who work for Lion Studios. They stand behind popular mobile titles such as Happy Glass and Cash, Inc., games that we have played and covered in the past. As it seems, their creative juices are still running at full speed. For that reason, we suggest you download Happy Shots Golf to your Android or iOS device as soon as you get the chance.
At first glance, this mobile game may seem easy to understand. After all, how hard can it be to swing a club and send the ball into the hole? Well, this is the tip of the iceberg when it comes to playing golf. Thus, check out our comprehensive list of Happy Shots Golf tips, cheats and tricks. By doing so, you will conquer level after lever without any problems whatsoever.
1. Use The Red Line To Guide The Shots
So, are you ready for a great adventure on the golf courses? To start with, you will need to learn how to hit the ball. After all, even pro golfers had to start at this stage. Thus, don’t worry if your drives are a bit off at first. With practice, you will hit the links with ease. Luckily, our Happy Shots Golf guide is here to help you with everything there is to know about the game.
For instance, one of the coolest features of Happy Shots Golf is the ‘guidance system’. What we mean by this is that the dotted line that will show you the potential trajectory of the shot. So, before you release the club and hit the ball, the dotted red line will indicate what could happen with the ball once you send it flying. Needless to say, you should use the guidance system for every drive you take. Also, take your time before the shot. Golf is a slow-paced game, and there is no need to rush things.
2. Shot For The Stars With Every Shot
Once you master the technique of swinging the club and hitting the ball, you will be ready for some advanced elements. Yes, now comes the target practice. But, the hole is not the only thing you should aim for when playing Happy Shots Golf. On the contrary, there is a wide array of items that you may need to hit first, way before reaching the flag.
One of those things that you should always aim at is – the star. As you see, every stage in the game will feature a gold star. If you manage to take down the star with your shot, a large reward will go your way. So, we suggest that you aim the dotted line towards the gold star every time you take a shot. Of course, hitting a star is sometimes easier said than done. And, as you progress through the game, the task of collecting every star will become more and more challenging.
3. Make Sure You Don’t Overhit The Ball
In the early stages of the game, the courses in Happy Shots Golf will be easy to deal with. The red dotted line will show you where the ball is going to land, and you just need to follow the trajectory. Needless to say, things will start to change as you climb the levels. Elaborate greens will force you to pause and think about the methods for solving the puzzle. In a way, Happy Shots Golf is a brain teaser game, and you will spend a lot of time thinking about the ways to solve all those conundrums.
For instance, one of the things you will have to keep in mind is to never overhit the shots. In other words, make sure to measure the power of the shot before swinging. By doing so, the ball will not fly out of bounds. If the ball falls down into the abyss, you will have to play the level all over again.
4. Use Your Items In The Area
So, the stages in the game will require more and more thinking as you climb the ranks. Luckily, we will provide you with the most important guidelines for playing Happy Shots Golf. For example, the greenkeepers in this game will scatter all sorts of items on the courses. Needless to say, many of those items can be of use as you are trying to get the ball to the flag.
To clarify, make sure to exploit the benefits of wind to lift the ball up. In some cases, the air fans will send the wind back in your direction, slowing the ball down. So, make sure to include that in your mental calculations when preparing the shot. Also, one of the common elements of Happy Shots Golf will be a form of trap doors. To open the doors, you will need to press a button. So, aim for the ‘control switch’ and after that, the ball will fall through the opening in the ground.
5. Match The Color Of The Ball With The Flag
The goal of Happy Shots Golf is to send the ball from the tee to the flag. When we put it like that, the concept sounds pretty simple. Yet, as you already know, the gameplay will feature a lot more. For example, higher levels of the game will sometimes throw in two or three different flags. So, we want to warn you about those situations.
If you notice that the golf course in Happy Shots Golf features blue and red flags make sure to send the appropriate balls into each hole. So, the blue ball will go into the blue hole and the red one into the red pot. Never mix those two since you will have to play the level from scratch. In some cases, you will have to ‘jump over’ a hole to reach the right one. But, if you follow the trajectory suggested by the red line, you should be fine. Also, keep the basic laws of physics in mind and the shots should end up where they are supposed to.
6. Replay The Level If You Make A Mistake
When it comes to the stages in Happy Shots Golf, the game offers a wide collection of levels. To be precise, as many as 418 stages are available. Of course, you will have to unlock them one by one in chronological order. To unlock a stage, you have to make a so-called rainmaker. Or, as the pro golfers would say it – you have to be in the zone. In translation, players have to send the ball to the hole marked with a red or blue flag.
However, the levels in this mobile game are full of traps and tricks. As such, they will ‘force’ you into making a lot of mistakes. So, to save some time, you can always hit the Replay button in the upper right corner of the screen. This option will restart the stage, and you can try again. It goes without saying that you should learn from your mistakes and avoid making the same ones over and over again.
7. Skip The Level If You Cannot Come Up With A Solution
We already said that you will need to solve a lot of puzzles to get to the end of Happy Shots Golf. But, golf is a game of patience and successful golfers are aware of the importance of tactics. In other words, you should always prepare a plan of action before executing a shot in Happy Shots Golf. Also, you should keep in mind all the other guidelines we explained earlier.
Nonetheless, some levels could be a tough nut to crack. No matter how hard you think or what strategy you use – the ball will not reach its goal. Well, the game provides players with a super-simple solution for those situations. In the upper left corner, you will see a button that says Skip. As the name implies, this option will allow you to skip the current level and move on to the next stage. So, this option can be a lifesaver if you ever find yourself stuck at a certain golf course.
8. Claim The Rewards And Gifts
While playing Happy Shots Golf, you will receive a reward for every level you complete. If you manage to shoot the star, the reward will be even bigger. That’s also one of the reasons for shooting for the stars when swinging the club. But, you will need all the coins you can get to unlock new stages. On top of that, you can skip the level if you pay with coins as well.
All in all, coins are a valuable currency in Happy Shots Golf. For that reason, we want to mention the Rewards section. As soon as you notice a red notification on the left-hand side of the screen, click on the icon of a trophy. In short, this section will display all the rewards you can claim for completing an achievement. So, collect the coins and use them wisely.
