The golf game vaguely reminded me of "Plain Jump" for the TI83


You should at least reference Tetrastar or Cosmic Epsilon to keep it NES-related. :D

Are you referring to the Famicom 3D System?

Golf games use what appears to be 3D polygon rendering to a 2D image plane, sort of a slow Star Fox, not to stereoscopic display. These sorts of golf games probably wouldn't work with shutter-based 3D TV (such as the Famicom 3D system or modern LED LCD panels) because a game has to be able to switch between the left and right eye images in alternating fields. And for that to work, the game has to be able to draw one complete view in 1/60 s or store two complete views in CHR RAM. The glasses are more for games that use a Pole Position style engine to draw the floor, such as Rad Racer, 3D World Runner, Tetrastar, Cosmic Epsilon, or something like Street Fighter II or NBA Jam.

I couldn't find Tetrastar mentioned anywhere in a game context, and Cosmic Epsilon appears to be a Famicom 3D game.

No, the slightly advanced smooth checkerboard scrolling of each game.
