i could easily see this being an ipad game sir. very simple and fun, with an organically controlled feeling, using your finger to control the swing.
i assume you have some indicator or 'wall' sprite to let you know if you hit it 'out of bounds' because it reacts immediately. can you place the same indicator behind the golfer on the left side of the screen. there is a noticeable pause when a ball rolls back to the golfer and off the screen to the left.
you see, it pays to suck at games, you find things other people would not. at least that's what i tell myself...lol.
i have not played all the holes yet. for the simple reason that i suck. but i would love to see a 'multiplayer' setup, not necessarily online, more turn based, with a running score of all parties. that would be awesome sauce, especially on a big screen tv(airplay) after a few brewskies...lol.
Will add the out of bounds behind the golfer in the next one!
Enjoyed the game. Had a little hit of excitement every time I sunk a shot. Good job.
One issue I saw was that there seemed little need for a low powered shot. It was almost always a blue banked shot. Nothing wrong with that but if that's the case you could simplify the game and drop the ball power setting, make it all about angles.
Your right re the lighter power, will change this.
Or you could add in a couple of levels that use the lighter power shots. For instance the jump in shot difficulty from hole 1 to hole 2 is quite large IMO. You go from up hill shot to water hazard plus spinning hazard. One skill is hard enough to learn per level.
I will try to make the holes progressively harder in the next one
On hole 2 if you dropped the water hazard and made the hill a little less steep, or even a downward slope toward to hole, then the player would have to shoot under the spinning hazard with a lower power shot. Or face the hazard throwing the ball past the hole.
Good point will see if i can better it.
Like I said it's a good game. I think the art style (line) drawings work really well. Hope to see what you do with this.
Thanks for your input.
