You guys should check this one out. It's free and I'm having a blast with it.

Agreed. Lack of Gamecenter on the HD version is a real bummer. Hope it's coming in an update.

It's not uncommon for an HD version of a game to be behind in features compared to the standard edition. Plants VS Zombies is one of the biggest examples of that - the HD version hasn't been updated in nearly four months, is missing all sorts of features, and is $4 more expensive ... ?

The main reason to go HD on this one is file size - the standard edition is almost TWICE as large, for reasons I still can't figure out. Doesn't seem to have any additional features ...


I like this game a lot, but wish there was some sort of "standard" or "pure" mode in it. To get the best score in this, you'll want to buy a full set of golf clubs and maximize your "terrain clearing / card removal" equipment. So rather than trying to get perfect scores now, I'm just moving on when I clear a stage, knowing I can come back when I'm "better equipped."


A "pure" mode where all equipment was disabled would be a good (if frustrating) 'alternate mode' to play through the game in, even if it might come down to pure luck a lot of the time.

I think it's because the iPhone version contains both standard and retina graphics.

Hmmm. I have found myself inexplicably addicted to this. Love the upgrades, and the gameplay is quite engaging for a solitaire card came. Definitely recommended.

Agree - this is definitely a lot of fun. It does crash on me periodically (usually tied to the gopher wild card game or the store). Regardless, bought the full version and am enjoying it quite a bit. The golfing commentary and humor is just right... Definitely recommended for card game fans.

The game froze up 1 time for me..
and that was in a mini game, for shooting the ball in the whole with some boards on the field. The ball is on the edge of the hole, and that's it..
Can't do anything.


Tried blowing on the ball, but did not work
