3D Ultra Minigolf Adventures 2 is a relatively quick and easy arcade game, but also provides a couple of hours of fun while you unlock the easy achievements. There is only 1 guaranteed achievement for completing the game, 'Rookie' which is also only worth 10, but if you win each tournament along your playthrough you will also be awarded the achievements for doing so. There are only 3 online achievements to earn from this game, which, because of the ability to create your own holes and make them very short, means these 3 online achievements can be earned in a matter of minutes, with a boosting partner.
Step 1a: Single player
The single player achievements in this game are very simple and consist of winning the tournaments throughout the single player game. The game isn't hard, but can be tricky to master for some, but there is a simple way of manipulating the score of each hole to your advantage. If you feel like you have perhaps taken too many shots on a particular hole, you can exit the game through the pause menu, then continue from the main menu and you are returned to the beginning of the hole you were on with your shot count reset to '0' and can try again to get a better score on your current hole. This method works for all of the hole's and can be done as many times as you wish. After you have completed and won all of the tournaments, you will have earned 90.
Step 1b: Single player mop-up
After you have obtained all of the tournament related achievements, you can then start to work on unlocking the more specific one's. These consist of 2 skill related achievements and 2 customization based achievements. To unlock the skill related achievements, you will need to make 10 'hole's in 1' within a single tournament and make 5 'birdies' or better in a row. These 2 are a matter of persistence and learning the courses to find the correct route on the course to get a hole in 1. For the 2 customization based achievements you just need to create a course for 1 and win a tournament as all 4 fully customized characters for the other. Both of these can be done within a matter of minutes. After unlocking these 4 achievements you will have earned yourself a further 60.
Step 2: Online
There are only 3 achievements to be earned online from this game and all can and should be boosted with a partner, as this will allow you to unlock them within minutes. You will need to host 3 online matches, host a match on a custom hole and win an online match. All of these can be gained by hosting only 3 matches with a boosting partner, by hosting your first match on a custom hole that you made, earning you your first achievement, 'Friendly Neighbor'. Then to unlock 'Online Champion', you should host a match on 1 of the original holes and have your partner let you win. Then proceed to host 1 more match and your final online achievement will unlock, giving you your final 50 .
So there you have it. A quick and simple 200 and a fun time while you earn it. The only problem anyone may incur is to make 10 hole's in 1 as it is the hardest achievement to obtain. You just need to take your time and be persistent in trying to learn the courses and finding all of the secret pathways that lead to a guaranteed hole in 1.
