PGA launches mobile golf game for kids made with Niantic Lightship

PGA today unveiled a new mobile title: PGA Jr League Safari Par-Tee, a golf game with an animal avatar. It was built with Niantic’s lightship equipment. It is currently available for free download on iOS and Android.

The app, developed by Trigger, is a cartoonish golf sim aimed at children and families. Players choose a cute animal to play with, and then hit the golf ball by dragging their finger on the swing to control the power and direction of their swing. It has a multiplayer component in which players can fight each other in 2v2 or 1v1. In addition to trying to get down to parity, players face various obstacles in their course.

I got a chance to see the app in action. It uses the lightship’s AR plane detection to set up a gaming area around the player. It offers three different biomes for players: Desert Dunes, Icy Flats and Meadows. Each one offers challenges that different types of golf clubs use, to show younger players their purpose. Trigger also uses Lightship’s built-in networking features to sync players on a normal AR plane.

Jason Yim, CEO of Trigger, said in a statement: “In the real world, metavors gaming is a key mechanic that can drive not only fun, but also education, commerce and utility. We are excited to partner with PGA in building this mobile app and to help them achieve their goal of engaging with young golfers through gamification and augmented reality. ”
