A must have game if you are a golf lover for your iPad. This app allows you to choose one out of four control systems. Better one out of these is the default, “Power Flick”, because it allows you the most realistic mini golf experience. Other three control systems are also not bad, so they also deserve that you give them a shot. There are two modes of this game with four courses featuring different surfaces to play such as grass, ice, or sand.
The difference between these surfaces is only limited to appearance / surrounding locations you may hardly find any friction difference. Lack of traditional mini golf obstacles except a few ramps, water traps and limited number of courses with only nine holes are some of the grey areas of this game. Overall a good and must have game for those who own iPad. [Download Link]
