Default Extreme Golf out now :)

Check out my latest version of a game I've been writing in various forms since the Atari ST/Amiga lol. I've finally brought it to iPhone

Hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

View it in iTunes
(Or the Lite version)

The blurb...
Quote:
Forget boring golf courses with serene, open fairways and chirping birds...

Features:

* A truly unique twist on the golfing genre.
* Three 18 hole courses ranging from easy to hard.
* Configurable random hole generation for almost limitless courses.
* Save 18 of your favourite random holes as a custom course.

Early reviews...

What would really take this game over the top is a little player customization. As is you are stuck with a bald baby looking dude, a female character and the ability to change cloth colors would be great. Also, a shop where you can purchase upgrades ect. Would be a welcome addition. Even if no additions are made, this game is worth your time and money.

I bought this a few days back and really like it. At first I was a little thrown off with the tree obstacles but there is a club specifically used to shoot almost straight up, which works well for these situations. Local multiplayer was also a plus.

Can you pan the view around the course before taking a shot?

Hey dude! Thanks for your review (quoted above )
Also, your suggestions are great but will probably make it into a sequel rather than an update as they're pretty big changes at this stage (and my artist is quite lazy lol).

I will probably sling a few more courses down the update pipe though...

For sure - just drag it with your finger. Then tap on the lie indicator to re-centre.

Yes you can. You just slide your finger to scroll and the cool thing is that it scrolls the distance as you move.

Tried the lite, didn't seem too bad. What is the point of the three-tap control though in a 2D game? In 3D if you miss the third tap you hook or slice... But here?

Wah, 1.79 seems a bit steep tbh..? Especially when you compare it to games like Super Stickman Golf which is only 59p at the moment...?

Nope, the IAP is not remotely compulsory. It's only there if you want all the courses & shots to be unlocked from the start, rather than unlocking them yourself through completing courses & challenges etc.
