"Tim Burton meets Tiger Woods 8.5/10" - Macenstien.com

"...Touch controls that couldn't be more simple, and a difficulty
curve that keeps you coming back for more, Melon Golf joins the ranks
of my other physics favorites on the App Store." -Toucharcade.com

"...Swatting a melon down a cavern is oddly satisfying, especially
when your hole-in-one is greeted with raucous applause. You'll feel
like Tiger Woods at breakfast." -Slidetoplay.com

*********************************************

Introducing Melon Golf!

Pull back on your Melon's stretchy stalk and launch him through 36 mini-golf inspired holes in this stylish physics puzzler!

Real-time Melon Physics simulate realistic gravity and collisions as your melon tumbles his way through 4 Challenging 9 Hole courses!

Use Interactive touch spin to control your Melon's rotation in flight for precise backspin!

Gears, tunnels, platforms, slippery surfaces and more stand between your melon and his home.

Can you unlock and conquer the diabolical Nightmare Course?

Featuring:
Touch, pullback and slingshot your Melon through 36 beautiful graphic holes
4 courses of increasing difficulty (including an unlockable Nightmare course) await you
Realtime Melon Physics for realistic melon tossing action.
Watch as your melon bounces, spins and flies through the air
Add interative backspin in mid-air using after touch backspin!
Unlock nightmare holes by collecting hidden stars throughout the world.
Highscore table for challenging your friends
Save on exit. If you get a call or quit the app you will resume where you left off
Listen to your own music while you toss your melon

Yeah. I downloaded Wacky golf but I got this too. This one is a bit more my style. Like the "The MAXX"/"Aeon Flux" feel.

Wow. I paid the $.99 for the art style alone. I'll post impressions when I get a chance.

I can definitely recommend it. For $.99, it's a lot of fun so far. It's not Rolando, but it's also just $.99.

If you're on the fence, just go get it.
