Click Wheel Putting In Mini-Golf For iPod
7:20 AM | Cord Kruse | 6 comments
Playlist magazine recently reviewed Mini-Golf for the iPod, one of the several iPod games offered by Apple. Mini-Golf is a 2D golf game which features three different 18 hole courses and cartoon avatars. Playlist gave the game a score of 4 out of 5.
From the review:
The game renders your view overhead, in 2-D, and puts you on the course with small cartoon-style character (that change from game to game). Scrolling the click wheel allows you to aim your shot (or position the ball on the tee); clicking the Menu button will undo the aim (but won’t undo the shot—you’ll receive no mulligans here). The full review is available from the link below.

Once you’ve got the ball lined up as you want, pressing the Select button will activate a gauge at the bottom of the screen that pulses from low to high; the longer you let it go, the more powerful your shot will be. Clicking the select button again will fire the shot. This takes a bit of adjustment to know how much power is too much. (It’s wise to try a few practice shots before setting out on the fairway.)
