Step 2. you put in the power you want so that means how much power you have to move from the spot you landed to the spot you are wanting to go to. Step 3.You shoot the ball and try to hit the ball in one shot but there are going to be some trees,and other hazards too if you don't make it in the hole in the first time you will get more tries.And those are the 3 steps to play angle mania golf game.

I had some troubles but sometimes I was exact on the target. My score was a 10. 24 is the worst and 16 is the best. Article posted November 17, 2010 at 04:28 PM GMT0 • comment (1) • Reads 271

It was 36 what you have to do is you see how many check marks you can make in 20 seconds and mine was 36 check marks in only 20 seconds. I was really proud of myself!

 Article posted October 6, 2010 at 04:36 PM GMT0 • comment (3) • Reads 370 What I thought of the game was I thought it was really cool and it knows your number. First, you think of a number. Next, add 4. Then subtract 7. Next it asks you to fill in your number that you ended up with. Then it knows your number that you started out with. That is my "Right Fit".
