Flick Golf! Review
- Intuitive flick-based interface.
- Vibrant international locations.
- Varied game modes and difficulty levels.
- Only Openfeint currently supported for scores/achievements.
Flick Golf! is a great addition to the list of flick-style of sports titles and while it only really offers one form of gameplay, it's polished and great to kill off a few spare minutes.

So sure, you've flicked footballs and you've pelted 'Speak & Spell's at a rampaging grandma zombie, but now Full Fat allow you to live out your fantasy as a pro-golfer in Flick Golf! Well OK, it's not like you'll be entering in to the PGA tournament in this title, but Flick Golf! turns something as relaxing as hitting a few golf balls down at the driving range in to something challenging and fun.
Like a lot of flick-converted sport titles, your aim is to get the ball to reach a designated zone and points are awarded for how accurate your shot is thanks to labeled concentric rings around the hole. Players also have access to an after-swing spin system where the ball can have top, back or side spin added to the shot up until the third bounce. Without wind interfering this makes getting a hole in one relatively simple, but changing positions and increasing winds will quickly ramp up the challenge.
There are several international locations to unlock as you improve your skills, with each area featuring simple, yet stunningly bright and colorful environments. The music that introduces each area is also fantastically well themed and it's a shame that there's no option to leave it playing in the background - I guess I just don't seem to be able to get my fill of bagpipes!
Whether you take your time with the World Tour mode or pop in for a fast Quickshot round, Flick Golf! is a great way to kill some time on the go regardless of whether or not you're a fan of Golf in general.
DescriptionPlay the most addictive golf game on the App Store!
Flick Golf is unique and so challenging it's hard to put down. The real question is - Can you Master it?
No clubs. No rules. Just flick, spin and curve your shots to try and sink that perfect hole in one. Watch out for the usual hazards; bunkers, trees, sand... and of course the wind!
It’s not that easy... just MEGA addictive!
