ゴルフJAPANコース © 1987 Nintendo Company, Limited.(Family Computer Golf Japan Course)
Golf Japan Course is a golf game released by Nintendo and featuring everyone's favorites plumber Mario. The game shares some similarities with Golf, another Nintendo game released for the Famicom system in 1984. The screen is divided into two vertical sections - On the left, Mario stands in his traditional, and to the last detail, red and blue outfit, ready to play. Data about the course are displayed right above him. The list includes hole technical information, current club, wind direction and how many times the player has played so far. The screen on the right shows a detailed overhead view of the course and the ball's current position. This view scrolls around and zooms-in when the player gets close enough to the hole. Controls are straight forward - the player just holds down the action button and moves left and right to change the swing's speed and strength (from a 1 to 3 scale), and up and down to pick a different club (from a list of 13). The game counts eighteen courses designed from real Japanese gold courses. The title screen also gives access to the Service Data, which was a way to access Nintendo's official Tournament.
