For players looking to hit the links or make their own, this casual golf game is probably perfect. It's been said that you only get out of something what you're willing to put into it. Sometimes, though, it's about what everyone else is willing to put into it, as well. Case in point: Zen Studios' latest, Infinite Minigolf. While technically not "infinite," the game's massive (and constantly growing) collection of user-created content means that you're likely to never play the same hole twice over the course of its lifetime. That's not to say every hole is going to be a masterpiece, but there are some creations out in the wild that are a true marvel to watch and play. It's these Rube Goldberg-esque creations that showcase just how much players are capable of when set loose with the right tools and a spark of creativity. Designing courses is surprisingly easy, too, with even younger gamers able to grasp the intuitive interface and craft some fun courses of their own.

Of course, you could build the most epic mini-golf hole of all time, and it wouldn't amount to much if the actual gameplay was no good. You might think that it would be hard to mess up the "aim and swing" formula of mini-golf, but you'd be surprised at just how tricky it can be to get right. It's possible to overshoot the hole of a course, even bouncing over the hole three times when trying to just tap the ball in. The culprit is the default sensitivity settings for the thumb sticks, and dialing it back to a personally more comfortable and manageable setting is vital. Depending on which platform you're playing on, this could be more or less of an issue. Still, you can expect to spend some early moments tweaking and testing the controls before finding your own personal sweet spot.
