If you played the original Flick Golf, you have an idea of what you have to expect from the game, a 3D golf game with pretty decent, retina graphics that looks fantastic.
Of course, it’s nothing groundbreaking, but who’s complaining? The new extreme environments are really well rendered, considering they take place in some random places. I will say though that these Extreme environments are pretty fun to play in, with lots of “what the f$#@” moments!
When I see where I’m supposed to get my golf ball to, ranging from helicopters, boats, and more. The only thing that bothers me sometimes is that it can be hard to tell how far, something is, or how long it’ll take to fall. If you played the original Flick Golf, you know exactly what I’m talking about.
The controls are the same ones from Flick Golf. You flick the ball, the faster you flick the further it goes. You can also swipe in a curve to add a bit of a backspin to it. While in the air, you can swipe to alter the direction mid-air, but after the ball touches the ground, you’ll only have until the third bounce to control it.
The controls of the game remind me of the main thing you need to keep in mind about Extreme: this isn’t a serious golf game, more of an arcade-ish, fun game. You’ll be swiping on screen to alter the direction of the ball like a mad men.
Flick Golf Extreme is a fun, simple arcade-ish game. Both the “World Tour” and “Quickshot” modes make a comeback. Just to recap briefly here, World Tour acts as the campaign mode, with you needing to get a certain high-score on a level to unlock the next, and Quickshot will have you get as many points as you in a certain amount of time.
There’s also “Five Ball” mode, where you get five balls and you have to get as many points as you can with those balls. If you land a hole in one, you get another ball. Points are awarded depending on accuracy. If you get a bull’s-eye or a hole in one not only do you get a lot of points, but time is added to the timer.
More extreme locations please!
As I mentioned above, Flick Golf Extreme isn’t your traditional game. That being said, with it’s point driven mechanism, and wacky physics and locations, I had (and am having) a blast with this game. If you’re in need for a quick pick up and play game that’s just fun, I would definitely recommend you check out Flick Golf Extreme.
