There are ads even in full version? WTF?
I'm waiting for Game Centre integration before buying but that may make me think twice..

Well you close the iPad and reopen and you get an 'ad' page for you to resume.

I just hate any ads in a game I paid in full for - it's cheap and tacky.

I will second many of the sentiments echoed in this thread.

1. The game is fun and incredibly addicting. It has far exceeded my expectations. If you enjoy solitaire or really any card games, this is well worth 99 cents for the full unlock. I have already put in tons of hours on this and I still have some courses that I haven't gotten 3 stars on yet.

2. Having to click through Big Fish Games ads even after purchasing the full unlock is highly annoying.


Even with the ads, this game is an absolute must for card game lovers.

The full unlock is $0.99? I thought it was $2.99.

It's a really fun game, but there's a big issue with it. I found it pretty challenging later on and the big fun of the game was trying to get 3 stars on every course. Buying and using the different golf clubs added to the startegy and fun of the game to get the 3 stars. Until I realized that if I do badly on a hole, I can always just back out of it to the main menu, then continue the game and the hole for the course will be reset with new cards to play...bad play of the hole, gone, using golf clubs more strategically to try and get 3 stars, gone. Knowing this, I could easily cheat my way though the game to get 3 stars. Yeah I know, I can just play through the course and not back out, but knowing you can do this makes it really hard not to when you're almost at the 3 star point and you know one hole will kill it for you. It's kind of a big bummer for me, really took a lot of the fun and challenge from the game.

Like others have said, don't let the ads put you off, this is a top game and they're just at the start screen. I actually paid for the ipad & iphone versions as I couldn't get my gf off this game!

I assume the lack of Gamecentre is due to the inclusion of multiple local profiles on the iPad version(something you can't do with the iphone vers). Personally, I prefer this as I can battle for highscores with the gf

Would still like to see GC included in an update... not sure why those local scores can't be tied to the logged in GC account.

So sleepy this morning... and yeah, this game is uber addicting. I stayed up too late last night playing "just one more course". Much better than I expected. So I blame Mad Polo for me being sleepy this morning!
