Full Fat has just released a major update to their popular game of Flick Golf and Flick Golf HD. Now, you have even more chances to score big with five new courses, 15 new achievements, a new game mode and Game Center integration. In addition to all of these great new features, the iPad-optimized game is on sale from $4.99 to only $0.99.
If you are not a fan of golf, don’t be deterred by the name. This game, while using a tee and golf ball, is anything but. It is a fun and addictive game of flick. There is no practicing your swing, no playing against the pros and no detailed rules of the game. You just flick your way to a hole in one with none of the boring stuff.
The game starts you off with a training course at the driving range where you learn the basic game play and hone your skills. Once you have the idea, you can either play a game of Quickshot, Quickshot pro, or enter the world tournament. You play on such beautiful courses as Turtle Cove, Kaikua Beach and Crescent Bay. Each course has different and increasingly more difficult obstacles.
Although the game does get harder to play, it is not impossible to get through. You have to meet a certain amount of points in order to unlock the next, but with practice, this can be done fairly easily.
A fun feature to this game is that you don’t just flick your ball and hope it lands on the green, you control the ball’s movement in mid air, including back spin if you’ve overshot. It really makes you feel like a golfing master.
Flick Golf is also available for the iPhone and is regularly $1.99, but is also on sale for $0.99. Grab these deals fast though, the games have been on sale since the beginning of April and my prediction is that the price will go back up soon.
What I liked: It’s not golf. The game is easy enough to play to become addictive without forcing you to be too involved. The graphics look amazing on the iPad
What I didn’t like: Every so often, an ad for one of Full Fat’s games will pop up. At full price, that will probably ruffle a few feathers.
To buy or not to buy: Flick Golf HD is a definite buy at only $0.99, especially with the added features.
