Time to Tee off: Birdie Crush Beta Has Started

Birdie Crush

Com2uS has launched a limited time beta test for arcade golf game Birdie Crush, inviting Android gamers from around the world to test out the game for a couple of weeks.

Birdie Crush is an arcade golf game that looks to offer players head-to-head matches featuring customizable anime-style characters, upgradeable gear, and animal caddies.

The new golf game pits two players against each other in real-time single hole matches, with both friendly and competitive options available. The game’s matches take places on a variety of themed courses that contain gimmicks for players to take advantage of as they try to get a leg up on their competition.

Birdie Crush looks to attract new players with its cast of four customizable anime-style characters and various animal caddies. Players will be able to customize their character’s outfit, hair, and more. While the game tries to focus on skill and timing based play, gamers will be able to upgrade their stats by improving their equipment and acquiring stat cards through various in-game activities.

The beta test is set to run until September 14th and, as with most Com2uS and Gamevil betas, player progress will be reset once the test is over. However, those who complete certain events will receive in-game items when the game launches. The rewards include a special limited edition Beta Test Exclusive School Uniform.

The head-to-head golf game genre is becoming increasingly crowded, with market leaders Golf Clash and Mini Golf King accumulating millions of downloads through Google Play. Although Birdie Crush is part of the same sub-genre, offering gamers single hole golf matches against other players, it looks to stand out by offering character customization, a different art style, and a less realistic look and feel.

Birdie Crush is free and while the full game will contain in app purchases, they are not available during the closed beta test. Here’s a trailer with a look at the game:
