iPad Game Review: Desert Golfing


image1 (9)As the end of the school year nears, maybe students are becoming bored and tired of all there old games, just like every other year in the past. No one wants to research and try to find a new game, like they do at the beginning of the year. They just want a game to appear out of nowhere or hear from one of their buddies about a new and exciting game. For those looking for a new game, consider Desert Golfing.
Desert Golfing is a new and exciting golf game by Blinkbat Games from the Apple Store. The concept of the game is quite simple: you try to hit the ball so that you land it in the hole in the least amount of strokes. It has the exact same premise as any other virtual golfing game. The one difference, however, is that instead of playing on one course (18 holes) and then going to another course after you beat the first course, this game just keeps on going on and on, one hole after another forever and ever.
In most games on the iPad, if you start doing bad you can just restart whatever level or hole you’re on. In this game, once you play that first hole, you can never go back and play it again. It is a very simple twist, but it makes the game more intense. The holes are easy in the beginning, and then they get harder and harder as you progress. Supposedly, after hole three thousand, the rest of the holes are completely flat. The creators of the game made every single hole different, so you never play the same hole again. I don’t really know if the game goes on forever because that would be impossible, but it might loop back to the beginning holes at some point.
Right now I am 2,397 strokes into the game through 1,031 holes. That is a little over two strokes per hole. The best way to play is to try to compete with your friends and see who has the best score through how ever many holes you decide on. Or, you could also compete to see who has the best strokes per hole ratio.
