The two shouldn't even be mentioned in the same sentence.
Desert golfing is a serious goty contender. It is the perfect mobile experience.
Golfinity can't even seem to show the player when an angle on the green is coming.

Seriously, this is a case of one not even being close to the other.

Desert Golfing is a great example of good game design!

I couldn't disagree less! This is my pick for Game of the Year.

Well I'm late to the party but just picked this up yesterday and I'm hooked. It's such a simple game but so easy to just pick up anytime you want. Played it at work, while waiting for the train anytime I've got a spare second.
Just finished hole 100. brilliant stuff.

From Pocket Tactic's article about the IGF nominations:

'Excellence in Design Honorable Mention, Nuovo Award Finalist

Desert Golfing is a 2D golf simulator with molecularly perfect controls and apparently an infinite series of holes. If it ends, nobodyís reported back to tell us yet. Itís also a one-way trip. No restarts, no save games ó youíre stuck with whatever score you got on the last hole and just have to keep on marching. Itís soul-crushing and compelling all at once, just like real golf. Itís on iOS and on Android.'

man - was having the round of my life and then hit a 74 (that's a full flipping round in real golf). Still an absolute peach of a game.

Stay strong. I think my highest shot count for a hole is around 130 or so. I'm now on Hole 8484 and will not stop until 10000. May not stop then.
Have you reached the point where the colors start gradually changing? I think it's at either 2000 or 3000 and it's totally worth the effort.

Wow - nope. In a completely contrary fashion to what the whole game is about I was hoping for a less than 2,000 over 1,000 holes before I marched onto Infinity, but I may just stick where I am after this 1,000 holes. I was playing it earlier when my eldest had a guitar lesson and sometimes while pitching a shot I really do think, this is absolutely perfect in every way - and then I hit a 34 and lost the moment.
