DIVERSE AND CREATIVE MINI GOLF EXPERIENCE
Play through 36 uniquely different holes with interactive scenery and striking 3D graphics. Play around giant mushrooms, rivers of lava, snowy beasts, and lumps of cheese. Watch out for these dynamic obstacles and be sure to knock out all the gophers in Gopher Mode.

FOUR CUSTOMIZABLE CHARACTERS

so far so good, as in really really good, and that applies to everything about the game. Best mini golf game in the store, no contest. Will be back with detail and more after I have a chance to play other modes.

Touch controls so far. I havent used the accelerometer for anything.

I've only played one mode so far, "Tee Off" I'm about to check out the other 2 modes. Very enjoyable game.

If there was a versus mode and online then this game would be absolutely perfect. Glu seriously needs to consider adding those in an update.

Ok, as of right now I'm going to give this game a 9/10. There is so many things about this game to praise. I hope Albie picks this one up because its certainly worth one of his "novel" reviews.

Wonderful presentation, good fitting music, great gameplay with nice touch controls. Nice menus, tutorial. Good graphics. Superb level design(courses) A nice camera "course view" to pan around each course(fast-forward and rewind as many times as you want and get a better look), 4 different camera views.
A nice point system to buy upgrades, items, and unlock characters. No technical issues on my 3GS, quick load times.
3 modes of gameplay-
1. Tee Off!- Untimed, complete each hole in par or less, gain points for doing so.
2. Timed Golf- No par in timed mode, just complete each hole before time runs out. Remaining time converted to points.
3. Gopher Golf- Same as Tee Golf! but there are gophers that pop up on the courses. If they are in the way you have to knock them out with strong shots. Otherwise a gopher can grab a ball hit their way and put it into another hole which isnt a good thing.

All the modes have the same courses

Here is what I'd like to see added to the game (update)...

a mode versus the computer
"online vs" multiplayer

Overall an excellent game, easily worth the current price.
