Full Fat has just released a brand new version of their popular, Flick Golf, in a sequel app called Flick Golf Extreme HD, and extreme it is. Play the same flick-and-swipe style game play as the first app, but with a whole new set of environments and obstacles to challenge the best Flick Golfers on the green.
For those unaware of the joy of Flick Golf, it is simply a matter of flicking a ball and swiping across the screen to help guide it to a hole-in-one.
You don’t have to know the rules of golfing or master the perfect swing. You just flick and go.
Flick Golf Extreme HD takes the game to a whole new level, an extreme one. In this game, you must hit the ball from a helicopter, guide it along waterfall cliffs, shoot from city roof tops, and many other outstanding environments. Each level increases in difficulty and offers a wide variety of interesting obstacles to overcome, making it valuable as a game that can be replayed over and over again.
You can choose from three game options, Quickshot, World Tour and Five Ball Challenge. In Quickshot, you must score as many points as possible within a limited amount of time. You must score a certain number before you can move onto the next course. In World Tour, you visit all the extreme courses around the world and attempt to score as many points as possible in nine rounds. In Five Ball Challenge, you only have five shots to score as high as possible, but you are able to add chances by getting holes-in-one.
The graphics are stunning on the iPad 2. Gameplay is smooth and you have the option of listening to your own music while playing the game. It is high in style and high in fun. You will be getting your money’s worth at $4.99.
What I liked: The creative courses make this game ten times more exciting than its predecessor, and that game was top-notch for fun and exciting games.
What I didn’t like: There is just the slightest tick of a lag in the loading of each game. It is barely noticeable though, so don’t let it deter you from downloading it.
To buy or not to buy: A must-have app for lovers of flick-style games. The price is right and the replay factor makes it great for everyone.
