WP7 Xbox Live Deal of the Week: Fable Coin GolfAugust 31, 2011 No Comments
One of my favorite Windows Phone games has been named the deal of the week. Fable: Coin Golf has just dropped it’s price from $4.99 to $2.99. It is a beautiful game and the perfect Fable handheld companion. If you are a Fable fan, making money for your character has never been this easy.
Now that we have that out of the way I can tell you about the actual game. This game is like pinball meets golf and then they ran off and get married in one of the many beautiful towns in Fable III. You start of with your â€˜Heroâ€ which is basically a puck that you control how hard and what direction you hit it. Your goal in every level is to try to get your puck into the goal in the least amount of turns possible. In the way of that are many villains from the Fable world that act as bumpers â€“ which also deduct from your total score when hit. Thereâ€™s also a few â€˜hazardsâ€™ like a few villains that you cannot get around and various â€˜pondsâ€™. – Read The Rest of the Review
Fable: Coin Golf draws upon the wealth of traditional British pub games like Shove Haâ€™Penny, Bar Billiards, and Skittles, and combines them with elements from very popular modern puzzle games to create an addictive skill-based game that is entirely in keeping with the Fable pub game universe.
Played from an overhead perspective, your quest is to rid the land of evil and conquer each area by getting your Hero Puck into the Pillar of Light in as few shots as possible.
Obstacles, hazards, and pickups litter the way, challenging the player to think carefully about the route they take. The playerâ€™s aim is to take as few shots as possible, thereby earning large bonuses that affect the area score. Scores can also be increased by performing various feats around the table. Gold earned from these areas can be transferred to your Fable III Xbox 360 and Windows PC games.
The player must complete the area with a high enough score to earn a â€˜bronze medalâ€™ (the lowest score award) in order to progress to the next area.
Areas sometimes contain power-ups which are zones of the table that give the puck certain powers if run over. The powers include â€˜Woodsmanâ€™s Axeâ€™ which allows the puck to cut down trees and thus progress through forests, â€˜Soldierâ€™s Swordâ€™ which allows the puck to kill enemies, and â€˜Carpenterâ€™s Hammerâ€™ which lets the puck build bridges to cross rivers.
Loosely mimicking the story arc of Fable III, Coin Golf follows a rising Hero who travels the lands and defeats evil, clearing a path to unite Albion under one banner. The three chapters take place in different regions, and the art depicted in the table elements changes to reflect the varied landscapes of Albion. Each chapter comprises of fifteen areas, and completing a chapter unlocks an exclusive weapon in future Fable III Add-on content.Tags: deal of the week, fable coin golf, fable III, Games, Xbox 360, Xbox LiveApps, Games
