Alphaputt is that beautiful place where typography meets crazy golf. Putt your way through the alphabet, complete your own wordy courses and challenge your friends. Just watch out for the UFOs. And the vacuum cleaners.
● Multiplayer (1-4 players)
● 26 levels, infinite courses
● Different game modes
Alphaputt is our typographic take on the classic mini-golf course. Up to 4 players can play on the same device.
There are 26 beautifully designed levels, one for each letter of the alphabet – from A for Airport to Z for Zen Garden. Each has its own soundscape and unique theme which brings its own gameplay challenges.
The intuitive shot system and minimal controls make sure the letters are the true protagonists of the scene. Players can move around them to get the best angle, set direction and adjust power.
Players can create personalised courses by typing in the words they want to play or tackle randomly generated ones. Individuals can also take the par-fection challenge by attempting to complete the entire alphabet under par.
There are virtually endless combinations and challenges that can be set, making Alphaputt a game you will want to play again and again.

Ratings and Reviews
A quirky and intelligent app!
I am NOT a golfer. Not. But the graphics and appealing price led me to investigate.
Wow. I am addicted. A mini-golf game with the courses designed as letters. But that’s too simple a description.
The golf ball physics are spot on. And there are so many little touches that didn’t have to be included but were anyway, like the screams if you flub the knievel jump, or the tiny shark fins circling the jail moat. The sound design is also superb, with every letter getting its own theme, sound effects, and in some cases I think there are actually visual jokes or eyeball commentary hidden in the designs, like the iron filings on X and the levitating stones on Z. Not to mention the constantly changing comments at the end of every letter to encourage you.
Apart from the whimsical undertones, the game mechanics are so silly and fun, yet so well executed, that it ends up feeling sophisticated. A truly entertaining app. Who would have thought?
Well done Designers! Perhaps add numbers?, or just add anything else. But more wonderful mini-golf please! Thanks!
A flawed gem
A wanted to like this a lot more than I do. It’s absolutely lovely and a clever concept. It’s marred by some weird UI bits, though. Foremost is the fact that the pull-back power mechanism and numeric power indicator sometimes mean that you can’t actually see what power you’re set, and other times you’re limited in the “available” power by the size of the screen. Further complicating that, it’s unclear what the power numbers actually mean and there very little feedback how much travel a given amount of power creates. Obviously, some amount of that is what makes the game challenging, but there’s just too little feedback for my taste.
Developer Response ,
Hi Good Thom - thank you for taking the time to feedback. We have some UI improvements planned for the next release and hopefully we'll be able to address your comments with the next updates.
A game worth playing if you value good design
I’ve been following Sennep’s production of this game for close to a year now (yes, I’m that passionate about mini golf games) and I’m proud to report that Alphaputt has all the charm, wonder & thoughtful design it promised and more! I’ve been thoroughly enjoying playing and typing out my own courses. Not everyone will notice the depth of thoughtfulness that went into even the smallest details of this game, but I certainly do & I hope you keep an eye out for them as well. This is a game by a design studio, not a dime-a-dozen “MiniPutt Lite”.
