Adrenaline Golf Online
Indy developer Eurocenter, which has developed several online games for the iPhone and iPod touch has released Adrenaline Golf Online, with full support for the advanced iPhone 3GS graphic extensions like the OpenGL shader effects. Eurocenter is the first to utilize the new technology on the 3Gs (finally!) and has done so with a game that mixes mini golf with pool. This is not to say they didn’t have issues working with OpenGL – they had to completely rewrite the engine from the ground up to work on the 3GS, and have two different 3D engines to work on the older models.
The best feature in this new title is the online multiplayer feature where you can collect stars and send bonuses to other players much like in Mario Kart. Additionally players can compete in 72 completely different courses.
The water, shadows and other shader effects look pretty cool from the video but I can’t wait to see other developers do something a bit more compelling than Golf, not to be dissin’ Golf or Eurocenter’s effort put forth in Adrenaline.3gs, eurocenter, iPhone, ipod, mini-golf, opengl
