A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, Linux, and Android

Chipping Challenge is a smooth physics-based meditative golflike designed to chill you out. Seemingly simplistic, the gameplay is just challenging enough to be rewarding and the multiple playfields, procedurally generated courses, and per-level wind make every single game different.

In Chipping Challenge failure is punished only in the mechanical sense. Particle effects float in the air when the ball hits the ground and the player has a persistent, swooshing, trail. The music and sound effects have likewise been chosen to put the player at ease.


  • Single-screen golf levels with physics-driven ball movement
  • Start with 5 swings, gain 3 swings per level cleared, play until you run out
  • Other bonuses may increase your remaining swings
  • Per-level wind variations
  • 5 playfield styles including Green, Moon, Beach, and Sweater Weather with more to come
  • Local all-time high score tracking
  • Lush, relaxing, background music and thematic sound effects


  • Click or tap and drag to shoot the ball
  • Right-click cancels aiming 
  • Command+F = toggle full screen / windowed
  • Escape = Quit
