SNOLF: Tournament Edition

By drmelon


  • Exhilirating (frustrating?) golf-style gameplay!
  • Three shot types: Putter, Regular, and Driver! Control your bounce!
  • Infinite lives!
  • Stuck? Use Shot Reset to go back to your last position!
    • Really, really stuck? Use Death Reset and take another try without restarting your console!
    • That’s right! One controller, two-to-four times the fun!
  • Struggle together in Cooperative mode, or go head-to-head in a Competitive Showdown!
  • Don’t have time for the full game? That’s OK! Game Length options let you play only Act 1 stages or only Act 2 stages!
  • All-new updated title screen graphics. Feel the blast processing!


Press A, B, or C to begin your shot. The button you press will determine the shot type:

  • Button A: Putter. This shot type can’t shoot you very far, but you’ll have minimal bouncing. Great for tricky shots.
  • Button B: Regular. Your standard 9-Iron shot. You’ll bounce off of walls in this mode, but still have soft landings.
  • Button C: Driver. Shoot for the stars! This shot type has a fast meter, but will allow you to bounce along the ground. Go the distance!

Once you have begun a shot, the power meter ring will be displayed and begin moving right and left.

Its distance from the center is equivalent to the horizontal force Snolf will be launched with.Press the button again to lock in your horizontal velocity, and the display will switch to show your vertical velocity.

Press the button a third time to lock in the vertical velocity, and launch your Snolf ball!

You can use the D-Pad to slow yourself when rolling, or to change which way your shot will initially face. If you are rolling into a bad position, hold the A button for 1.5 seconds to reset your shot.

If you’re really, really, stuck, press Start and then the A button to kill your Snolf ball and try again.

It’s simple! Good luck!
