Fable: Coin Golf
So with the Fable train still chugging along Lionhead and Microsoft have got another little mini-game for us to play. With the new Fable: Coin Golf lucky owners of a Windows 7 Phone will be able to play this on the move and gather money for their game on the big ol' console.
"Fable: Coin Golf draws upon the wealth of traditional British pub games like Shove Ha’Penny, Bar Billiards, and Skittles, then combines them with elements from very popular modern puzzle games to create a challenging skill-based game that is entirely in keeping with the Fable pub game universe.
Played from an overhead perspective, your quest is to rid the land of evil and conquer each area by getting your Hero Puck into the Pillar of Light in as few shots as possible.
Obstacles, hazards and pickups litter the way challenging you to think carefully about the route that you take. Take as few shots as possible, thereby earning large bonuses that affect the area score. Scores can also be increased by performing various feats around the table. Gold earned from these areas can be transferred to your Fable III game on Xbox 360 or PC."
While this sounds great, this pud goer can't help thinking that this would be great to see on the Live Arcade rather than on a select number of phones. But, we shall see. More images below:-
