This idea is not new, and it was done by the Red Hot Chili Peppers in their Dani California music video about seven years ago.

Let’s see how they stack up:

When I first saw the title of this hidden object mystery, I had a feeling that AnnGames was using the current pop culture obsession with the Twilight movies and books as a marketing ploy. One of the secondary characters is even named Bella, but Bella is not the focus of this game. It has more of Harry Potter kind of a feel, yet it is set in North America. This story involves a young woman whose parents went missing, and when a distant relative, Hovenheim, gives her a letter from her mother, she finds out that her parents are alive, but they are trapped in a parallel plane called simply, Dark World.

So take a day on any one of your favourite beach golf courses, and imagine you have to line your shot up, then you have to answer some random trivia question before you can take the shot. Your question’s difficulty is based on how far you want to hit the ball. The closer you get toi the putting green, the more difficult the questions become, and if you’ve grown up with North American culture, many questions won’t make sense to you, since apparently, whomever came up with them is British. Once you do get to the putting green, you have to do some kind of matching quiz to see how many strokes your short game will take.
