Pocket Mini-Golf 2; good timing for golf lovers

Chillingo has a mixed past on the appstore, but as of late they seem to be refining their releases. This game looks good and the interface looks similar to another of their popular releases:Bike or Die 2. The reason for the title is hopefully now some of the other good golf games will be forced to compete by dropping their prices. Stay tuned.....

Yea, Chillingo was releaseing every idea they had, and badly. Not as bad as DS Effects, but still pretty bad.

I've just purchased.

It plays just like the Palm version I got some years ago. Same courses I'd say.

The graphics are better tho.

Now I have to play it more in order to give my final word about the game.

It looks like a complete port of a cell phone game graphically IMO

I'm digging it so far. Appears to be nicely done. 54 holes - but I've only played the first 7. Nice interface and controls.

Finally pulled myself away

This game is what Hotshots would be like as a put-put game. I like the interface of menus, and the set-up of play. It is nowhere near as frustrating as Neverputt Me and way more fun than Par 72 and GL. It includes character selection and course custimization. Also, there are unlockables(there are little gold stars hidden around some of the holes). I would recommend this to those who like other mini-golf titles or lots of content and cartoonish graphics. I think it deserves 4 stars based on the ammount of course content and variety.

I really like this game. The controls are very easy to use and make an accurate shot possible. I prefer this game over Mini Touch Golf and Neverputt ME. It's fun!
