Gigaputt just released - Make the world your mini-golf course

Our indie studio, Gigantic Mechanic, has just released it's first iPhone game, Gigaputt.

Check it out on iTunes: Gigaputt

Gigaputt transforms your neighborhood into a mini-golf course, complete with popping manholes, treacherous hydrants, and giant coins. With each new game Gigaputt creates a course starting from where you stand and gives you the option to either walk the course like the pros using GPS, or play from your living room.

We'd really love to know what you think of the game. Comment or shoot me an email! Tell us what features you want to see or any problems you encounter.











Swing your iPhone like a real golf club to send the ball sailing over your neighborhood. Once you’ve perfected your swing grab up to 4 of your friends and compete to see who can collect the most coins with the least swings. With Gigaputt the world is your fairway!

We've got a few promo codes to give away. Visit Promo Dispenser to grab a code:

Just to a quick note, right now you need an iPhone with GPS to play. But were working on support for the Touch.

D'oh!

Grabbed a code, but I've got an iPod Touch.

Will download it to my wife's iPhone 3GS later to try it out.

Looks like we're out of codes for now. Glad people were downloading. When we do an update we'll have some more.

If you like Gigaputt, I just made a list of other interesting location-based and real world games over at Appolicious:

Check some of the other apps on there out. Seek 'n Spell's also great.

Cheers.
