Golf games typically require at least some skill with timing and club selection. Not so with Golf Peaks. Golf Peaks is a puzzle game that uses cards and blocky terrain to create challenging single-screen puzzles. It’s out now on the Nintendo eShop on Switch, for $4.99.

Golf Peaks is described as a “relaxing, award-winning puzzler where you climb mountains by playing golf.” It’s an isometric puzzle game, not unlike last year’s Into the Breach, but with slightly fewer giant mechs fighting giant insects.

Instead of swinging golf clubs, you play cards that dictate which actions and directions you take. Each card moves the ball in a certain direction and distance. You’ll need to figure which cards to use where to get the ball into the hole. The puzzle game features over 100 levels spread out over nine worlds.

Golf Peaks’ simple controls support the touch screen as well as either Joy-Con half controller, along with HD Rumble. It’s the debut game by by Polish indie studio Afterburn and published by 7Levels.

Golf Peaks is available today on the Nintendo Switch eShop. It’s also available on PC, Mac, and iOS mobile devices. It’s currently on Early Access on Android and should be launching soon. It’s rated E for Everyone.
