If you mean easy as in finishing the game, yes but you could have a terrible score

Its easy, just use basic arithmetic, Find the right power and angle, using the square root of pi (3.14159265), calculate the trajectory, divide that by 2, and add the radius of the ball. Then calculate air resistance and friction and you have yourself a hole in one!

OMG. Double Rainbow!

You forgot to take into account inopportune phone calls when you're trying to aim the melon, and the iPhone's battery spontaneously imploding and shattering the screen so a tiny piece of glass shoots into your eye.

Oh yes, I almost forgot. Subtract the amount of money it takes for surgery, and then divide your chances in half... that should do it.

I've been stuck on a few boards. One board it took me over a 100 tries.
Maybe I just suck at it

No there is always a learning curve, once you get it after a couple hundred tries, it will probably go to single digits after a second try lol

I don't like the fact that harder levels in this game involve luck rather than skill. That cogs level... How the hell can it be completed other than by moving an angle by 0.01 degree and pray? oh how do you collect the star above the moon? Earlier levels actually involved bouncing the melon off the wall to get it to the hole, or launching it along a curved wall to make it slide along the correct path. Those levels are the most rewarding.
If you have to mindlessly shoot the melon hundreds of times towards the hole hoping that you picked the right angle this time makes the game boring.
