Innova tried a computer version. It sucks due to it being outdated.

So the title says Ultimate but the box image shows Freestyle? Okay.

And the box image shows Gameboy not DS, but I don't really know squat about gaming systems, so maybe those are the same thing.

Here is another game titled Freestyle/Golf:

I've put some thought into creating a disc golf game. Monkey Ball Bowling provided my original inspiration because of its sequence of steps similar to a disc golf run-up and release. Here are the basics of what I envision:

Pre-Shot Routine:
1. Choose disc
2. Set type of shot (steps/stance)
3. Set focal point (including height)

The SHOT sequence:
1. Power (pullback)
2. Angle of release
3. Snap
4. Last-second compensations for error correction

Simulation Aspects:
* Test wind by dropping grass and/or hearing the wind howl (like on this video from Bowling Green Final 9 DGTV)
* Some sort of search for discs? Could affect fatigue
* Lost discs can't be used again until you receive a phone call or find them on a message board
* Pedestrians, dogs, cars, wildlife, etc.
* Interactive walk with group for multiplayer:
- Watch their shot from where you're standing
- Press different buttons to cheer/jeer your opponent
* Discs have a beat-in factor that is represented by the amount of wear shown on the disc and its flight.

Other Aspects:
- Several views that are toggleable including a disc cam view. Views are extremely important for retaining interest.
- Putting needs to have a different feel than driving and approaching. Like a thumbstick or mouse finesse skill. Tough straddle type of putts = lower margin for error (inc. difficulty)
- The game could be in collaboration with the PDGA to encourage membership and offer an alternative platform for competition (thinking along the lines of Golden Tee but not as big)
- If the game environment simulated real physics and the flight of the saucer was based on its torque and aerodynamics as opposed to a pre-fabricated flight path, the game could potentially serve as a way of testing new disc designs. I know, that’s stretching it. It would also have more realistic results on tree ricochets and the wind if the environment were based on real physics and collisions.
- COURSE EDITOR (even if SDK). Make it easy for people to submit local courses and have contests for the best replicas, original ideas, etc. You could practice how you're gonna play every hole the week before a tournament!

Kepp, for as simple as the game is to thosewho are new - to please any of it, it would require some killer physics engines... That being said, it can be done. I'm a PC gamer & believe in the physics engines of today, like in Battlefield2, sniping, flight missions, etc... I'm not a fan fo the console, but DO believe the gyroscopes in the Wii controllers would be KEY to getting the right action in the game...

That woudl friggin RAWK!

There is some really crappy disc gof minigame in Super Monkey Ball for the Wii. It's the only reason I bought the stupid game. The controls are all wrong and the disc just doesn't fly right. But you're right, the Wii remote would make a great way to launch discs.

KePP, how about the ability to earn Karma points that can be traded in for disc and bag upgrades?

Wal-Mart Disc Golf game for DS

Postby WyldeChucker » Wed Jun 06, 2007 9:25 pm

I intend on buying that Frisbee golf game from Wal-Mart when it becomes available. :D I will let you guys know what I find out with it. I might even have to bring it out to the course.

I talked about this once before on the PDGA site, comparing it with a game like Tiger Woods. Somebody on there told me about a mapping system that worked with PS1 and with some other add ons ,and stuff above my head, it could exist. People even took photoshop photos of holes from Hot Shots and added baskets. It was cool, even though I think Hot Shots sucked.

I know I would buy it, and dont think its far off from being a reality. How good the game would actually be, as in how much money given to design it would be the tricky part.

The Innova game sucked when it came out, it has nothing to do with advances in technology.

It would be SO SICK for it to be similar to Tiger. 10 courses, then unlock 4, the last by beating Climo. By the time it became a reality, you could download other courses online and play people.

If it were anything like Tiger Woods, Id start at 1030 rated.

I think I remember Sprague talking about some digital arts company wanting him and a few others to come put on the outfit with all the little tracking devices or whatever you call them so they could map/digitize his motions. I don't know if it's ever happened tho.

The ps3 version was better than I expected. I think a disc game using the golf simulators would be pretty awesome. Actually get to throw at the screen and it reads angle speed and disc type to simulate the flight.
