If you ask me, golf is one of the most snooze-worthy sports ever. So why then am I getting excited about Mobilive and Ayopa Games’ upcoming iOS title, Death Golf, you ask?

Well, you see, they’ve made the inspired decision to transform the typically pedestrian game of golf into a deadly blood sport complete with dangerous predators, devious death-traps and devastating power-ups. Yeah, I can get behind that!

Death Golf is set to be published by Ayopa Games (Dungeon Crawlers, Pocket Heroes, Light Byte) and will land on the App Store in October. Here’s the official synopsis from Ayopa Games:

“Developed by talented Finland-based indy (sic) team Mobilive, Death Golf combines fast-action platfomer gameplay with skillful golf precision to create a brand new game genre! Head onto the course to combat ferocious predators and avoid devious traps. Use devastating Death Golf power-ups and colossal point-boosting combos to head for the hole! You can duck into the clubhouse and upgrade your gear before heading back out to conquer more than 35 levels with fantastic scenery, creatures and effects! Game Center leaderboards and achievements mean you can track your progress against other fearless Death Golfers!”
