Walkabout Mini Golf has been on a roll ever since it launched in late 2020, now counting 22 courses strong with the addition of a very spooky level just in time for Halloween: ‘Widow’s Walkabout’.

Developers Mighty Coconut say Widow’s Walkabout brings to the game a “mysterious cliffside manor [..] haunted by a playful spirit who’s possessed an eerie mini golf course like no other.”

The haunted course is said to pack in a bunch of spooky surprises and hints to an unsettling story the player can unravel. There is sure to be plenty of phantasmal objects, Victorian architecture, and “mischievous onlookers in this house of unending curiosities and supernatural shots,” the studio says.

Priced at $4, Mighty Coconut says Widow’s Walkabout also comes along with a set of themed avatar features, settings for spooky-averse and photosensitive players, and—as with every course—18 collectible lost balls and a commemorative in-game putter, which can be earned via a Foxhunt that also reveals the course’s sinister backstory.

“It’s also the game’s densest course to date in terms of details, props, and Easter eggs with a surprisingly high poly count for this beloved low-poly title,” the studio says. “And the glass and noir lighting are special technical tricks, designed to take players deep into the many archetypes of spooky storytelling from Alfred Hitchcock and the Addams Family to Victorian spiritualism and beyond.”

Walkabout Mini Golf has unleashed a seemingly never-ending torrent of courses over the past three years, including Atlantis, Upside Town, Temple At Zerzura, Alfheim – Land of the Elves, Laser Lair, and more. Moveover, the game is also getting an iOS version, called Walkabout Mini Golf: Pocket Edition, which will feature crossplay with Quest.

You can nab it over on the Meta Quest Store, Steam and PSVR 2, priced at $15.

    Wonder why the VR golf BOT farm isn’t spamming the comments here. Maybe this is a competing app!

    I guess this site has given up on writing reviews. Just seems to be a retweet and clickbait factory. There was a time that they regularly offered reviews.

      Yeah, but they suck less than the other VR news websites, although they are really getting sucked into the Apple reality distortion field with that working prototype Apple’s pimping!

    Played it yesterday, great course.

    These are pretty fun games, but have they ever released just a fantasy mini-golf level, you know, with big over the top windmills that work, that type of stuff. The levels are always pretty static, minus whatever theme you get. Again, not that it’s bad or anything, I just would like something more like Zany Golf on the Genesis. That’s still what I think of when I think video game mini-golf.

      Big over the top windmills that work…so, you mean the Quixote Valley course that is included in the base game? What do you mean about the levels being static? Are you expecting them to be different each time you played them?
      You’re not doing a very good job of describing what you’re looking for. It honestly doesn’t sound like you’ve actually played Walkabout yet.

        Go play an actual arcade mini-golf game then get back to me kid.

          Ah yes, throw out a weak “insult” while simultaneously not clarifying what you actually meant. That’ll show me!

            I was asking a legit question – have you ever played an arcade mini-golf game? If you had, then you’d know exactly what I mean. Clearly, however, you haven’t – and the fact you don’t even know what that is, says everything about you, kid.
