A couple of weeks ago a new indie game arrived with its early access to Steam and Xbox, which has been available on the Xbox Game Pass service since its launch and is Turbo Golf Racing, a new multiplayer proposal developed by Hugecalf Studios and published by Secret Mode.
Surely Turbo Golf Racing is something familiar to you and it is clear that it took inspiration from Rocket League, since it seems like an unofficial spin-off with a Golf theme. However, despite their similarities Turbo Golf Racing manages to come up with something really new and it quickly becomes clear how different these two games are.
Also: 6 features of Nissan e-power technology that explain how it works.
Turbo Golf Racing is an arcade sports game in which 8 rocket cars compete to get a ball to a hole on the other side of the circuit, which looks like a giant golf course. Although the control is similar to that of Rocket League, the terrain, the objective and the way you interact with other players is totally different in Turbo Golf Racing.
In Turbo Golf Racing all the players start where they are and you can see their positions and the positions of their balls at any time, but they are semi-transparent since it is not possible to collide with them. However, Turbo Golf Racing has two items, a missile to shoot other players and delay them in their game, and a shield to protect you from enemy shots.
The control of Turbo Golf Racing is very similar to that of Rocket League, since it uses the same buttons to accelerate, skid, use the turbo and jump. However, the way the cars spin in the air is somewhat different from the Psyonix game, not to mention that in Turbo Golf Racing it is possible to hover in the air by pressing the drift button after a jump.
Turbo Golf Racing also has a single player mode in which we can play the more than 30 circuits of the game alone. The faster you finish each circuit, the more stars you will receive that are used to unlock new abilities for our vehicles. When Turbo Golf Racing was released it was not necessary to play this mode in order to compete online, but after an update it became mandatory for you to get 4 stars in single player mode before playing multiplayer.
Turbo Golf Racing also has an in-game store, but thankfully no microtransactions. Instead, the items in the store are bought with gears that we earn by playing and trophies, the prize for first place finishers. If you want to obtain the most exclusive items, you need to win several games, but other than that, all items are available to all players.
Turbo Golf Racing also features a free Season Pass consisting of 40 tiers with one reward each, ranging from cosmetics to new vehicles.
The customization of Turbo Golf Racing allows us to choose the bodywork, tires, wings, defense, turbo wake, texture and paint patterns for our vehicles, in addition to the fact that it is possible to buy different balls such as a baseball, a soccer ball and a marble. You can also modify the main and secondary colors if there is no limitation, so Turbo Golf Racing can boast a greater customization than Rocket League.
Finally, Turbo Golf Racing is also available on Xbox Cloud Gaming and is one of the games that supports touch controls on mobile devices, so if you like it and are subscribed to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate you can compete from any device.
