What you're looking at, right there above this text, is a 620px-wide swath of Wonderputt, the best 15-minute putt-putt game I've ever played.

Granted, I'm not exactly a golf aficionado, but Wonderputt -- designed by Damp Gnat and published to Kongregate -- is tightly designed, with totes adorbs animation and an elegant shooting mechanic complemented by surprisingly robust physics.

Wonderputt is actually a follow-up of games like Kongregolf and Adverputt, also by Damp Gnat. What ties all of these games together is the way each hole intersects with a different part of the course, giving the entire project an M. C. Escher-esque level of cohesion lacking from minigolf courses that have to follow those pesky laws of physics.

Play Wonderputt here, and be sure to check out the work-in-progress blog for stills and concept art.

During the first hour of Rusty's Real Deal Baseball I babysat one of the titular character's 10 kids, played a 4DS, and fed him donuts while I listened to his marital problems. I'm glad Nintendo decided to make this game.more
