Mini-Golf For iPod Examined
7:50 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Applelinks has posted a review of Mini-Golf for the iPod, one of Apple's recently released iPod games. Mini-Golf gives players the chance to try their hand at three miniature golf courses in colorful 2D style. Applelinks gave Mini-Golf a score of 4 out of 5.

From the review:

Anyway, Mini Golf gives you 54 holes across three separate courses: Tommy Totem's Tiki Putt Putt, Cleopatra's Mini Golf Oasis and Krazy Klown's Sideshow Golf-n-Fun. What I like about each course is that, for the most part, they feel like they could be real miniature golf courses. Yes, there are some hazards in the game that would be impossible to pull off in real life, but there's a logic to most of the holes (although that logic does get fuzzier as you progress through the courses). Each course has holes that are quite simple and some that seem to be there only to make sure you max out your strokes at least once (the stroke limit is a ridiculously high 10, but I guess that's acceptable when there's no one behind you waiting for a turn). Considering that you have to get par or lower on each course to unlock the next, these holes may prove incredibly frustrating to some. Yet, I hit par on Tommy Totem the first time I played it to unlock the next course, and although I didn't fare so well on Cleopatra's Oasis, my wife beat it on her first try to unlock Krazy
