October 9th 2007: Northamptonshire, UK: Oxygen Games is delighted to announce that King of Clubs is now shipping for Playstation 2 and PC and will be in the shops from October 26th.
King of Clubs is an innovative, yet humorous tongue-in-cheek game, which combines traditional kitsch seaside crazy golf (except that it’s set in the Nevada desert!) with the challenge of finding new ways of completing each hole with as few shots as possible – perhaps even scoring a hole in none!
Featuring 90 holes (plus a further six bonus holes), players can accumulate cash rewards, plus unlock bonuses and new equipment to further enable their mastery of the courses. These are spread across five themes; Prehistoric, Egyptian, Medieval, Hawaiian Tiki and Sci-Fi, each with multiple solutions and full of dodgy animatronics, peeling plywood scenery, plus cheesy music and dubious course pros to match!
Unlocks and bonuses include balls that go farther, fly higher, bounce more or just stick to where they land…amongst others. In addition, there are several clubs to be had, which allow the player to chip, pitch, punch or swerve their balls around the courses. Mulligan tokens are also available to let the player to re-take a fluffed shot and cosmetic additions let players customize their game with specific sounds, ball designs and colours…and opponent taunts!
Multiple single-player modes allow the player to work through the levels, unlocking new equipment and characters as they progress, whilst the multiplayer modes allow players to select from all equipment and levels, without needing to first unlock them, although each player begins with the same amount of cash. This variety of modes, pick-ups, levels and the various effects of different equipment, all give the game immense party-game potential and longevity.
King of Clubs, for up to four players, will be in shops from October 26th, for PC and Playstation
