Fable Coin Golf (WP) - $4.99 - £3.99 $2.99 - £2.29

Fable: Coin Golf draws upon the wealth of traditional British pub games like Shove Ha'Penny, Bar Billiards, and Skittles, and combines them with elements from every popular modern puzzle games to create an addictive skill-based game that is entirely in keeping with the Fable pub game universe.

Played from an overhead perspective, your quest is to rid the land of evil and conquer each area by getting your Hero Puck into the Pillar of Light in as few shots as possible. Obstacles, hazards, and pickups litter the way, challenging the player to think carefully about the route they take. The player's aim is to take as few shots as possible, thereby earning large bonuses that affect the area score. Scores can also be increased by performing various feats around the table. Gold earned from these areas can be transferred to your Fable III Xbox 360 or Windows PC games.

The player must complete the area with a high enough score to earn a 'bronze medal' (the lowest score award) in order to progress to the next area.

Areas sometimes contain power-ups which are zones of the table that give the puck certain powers if run over. The powers include 'Woodsman's Axe' which allows the puck to cut down tress and thus progress through forests, 'Soldier's Sword' which allows the puck to kill enemies, and 'Carpenter's Hammer' which lets the puck build bridges to cross rivers.

Loosely mimicking the story arc of Fable III, Coin Golf follows a rising Hero who travels the lands and defeats evil, clearing a path to unite Albion under one banner. The three chapters take place in different regions, and the art depicted in the table elements changes to reflect the varied landscapes of Albion. Each chapter comprises of fifteen areas, and competing a chapter unlocks an exclusive weapon in future Fable III Add-on content.
