Under The Tree: Ninja Golf

If Hollywood ever decides to turn this game into a movie I will be first in line to see it. Because it will break all box office records. This could be the big break Clint Eastwood has been waiting for.

Developed by BlueSky Software for the Atari 7800, Ninja Golf combines a traditional golf game with side-scrolling beat’em up gameplay.

Simply aim your ball and shoot it towards the green. Upon running towards your ball you will encounter various enemies along the way. These enemies include other ninjas, gophers, birds, giant mutant frogs, sharks, snakes, and a whole lot more.

Ninja Golf is one of the last games Atari released before dropping support for the 7800 system in 1990-91.

If you’re a retro game fan looking to play something that has a lot of depth, this isn’t the game for you. The gameplay is very repetitive. The box art gets an A+ though.

Video game collecting has exploded in popularity over the years. It makes me wish I had held on to some of mine. A sealed copy of Ninja Golf can reach into the hundreds of dollars.
