Mobile games for finger-putting this Winter
OK, so here we are in 2018, and so far outdoor conditions have been less than ideal for a round of minigolf at your favourite course. Is you putting arm twitching with desire to get out there? Well, maybe you can redirect that twitchy feeling into your finger and have a go at one of the many golf (and minigolf) games available for mobile devices.
Some of you might have got a shiny new ‘fondle slab’ for Christmas – a smartphone or a tablet. What better use for it than to get in a bit of finger-powered putting action?
We blogged about mobile minigolf games a while back. Since then some new games have hit the Apple and Google Play stores, offering everything from no-frills physics simulation to wild, improbable golfing fantasy lands. This time we’ve broadened it to ‘big golf’ games, because it isn’t real, so what does it matter whether it’s minigolf or golf? It’s just a bit of fun for rainy days.
Here’s a selection of the top 5 mobile games from thegolfnewsnet.com. We’ve played Golf Star and Flick Golf and they are both fantastic in very different ways. Golf Star is as realistic as a mobile golf game can get, with all the factors you would encounter in the real world coming into play except hunger and tired legs. Flick Golf is cartoonish and actually defies physics (you can add spin to the ball while it’s in the air!) but it is fun to play, highly addictive and satisfying if you buy into its game logic.
Hopefully we’ll all be out putting again soon, but in the meantime the less (fool)hardy of you who don’t like force ten gales and hail when putting might like to try out one of these mobile games for a bit of fireside fun.
OR hire a Putterfingers course for indoor events this Winter!
