Rocket Golf Lite released for the iPhone

A few weeks ago I announced Rocket Golf for the iPhone in this thread - http://forums.toucharcade.com/showthread.php?t=22423 . Now I'd like to announce Rocket Golf Lite. Free ad supported version with only 6 holes. Feel free to check it out - http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=327753353&mt=8

Any comments are welcome!

PS - Rocket Golf is still on a $0.99 sale, although it will probably end next week once all my advertising banners that say $0.99 run out.

Strange how two 2D golf games come out one after the other, and they are the only 2 that exist on the AppStore (afaik).
Regardless, looks pretty good.

just a great looking ripoff, not really a big issue for me since the game itself is so far from world of goo, gordon bradley made melon golf, kyle gabler made world of goo.

and I think you may be reading too much into the names, they really aren't that alike.

It plays different than Melon Golf beacuse the physics are different..... Or, I have to say it, Melon HAS physics Rocket Golf HAS NOT..... Just look what happen when tha ball goes downhill: it stops suddenly....
