This week developer Damp Gnat is releasing an iOS version of their popular Flash mini-golf adventure game Wonderputt. The best way to describe Wonderputt is if mini-golf met the board game Mousetrap and they both went to school to major in, uh, Science. And aliens. Or something like that. Have a look at the trailer.

I’m kind of a big fan of mini-golf games, and there have been a few good ones on iOS before, but I’ve never really seen anything quite like Wonderputt. I like the game’s sense of humor and the elaborate course designs, making it more like a puzzle game than a straight golfing game. You can try the Flash version for free on Kongregate, and check back during this week’s new releases to grab Wonderputt for your iPad 2 or later device.

    This game has some incredible, other-worldly graphics.  This will definitely be a Day One purchase. 'Preciate the heads-up.

  • ImJPaul

    Looks interesting. I'll definitely get it.

    Definitely a fan of the cartoonish golf games, so I'll pick it up. Not expecting it to be as good as Super Stickman, but it has a bit of a window now before Stickman 2 comes out for me to give it a try.

    • GiHubb

      I agree, really looking forward to Super Stickman Golf 2. Hopefully this has more courses and multiplayer! As is, it's about a 10 minute experience. Love the art style though.

    Looked good until I saw the man with the white hair doing poor acting. Put me off! Won't be having my money!

      Don't base a game off of the non-gameplay part of its trailer.

      • ducksFANjason

        You mean I don't have to play this game WITH that old man!? I'm sold!

    • wetfly

      Its meant to be poor acting. It's a spoof of early infomercials.

  • lancheta

    I played the flash version and it seems like there was only one 18-hole course. Each hole had a 3 star rating and your score was based on how many strokes you had under par.

    Very good design I had to say. Definitely reminiscent of any miniature golf course. Hopefully they have more courses available.

    • frasermorgan

      Agreed. That's the only downside I found to the game... It didn't seem to have much replay value either. AMAZING art...but once you've been through it once, it just leaves you wanting more.

      • lancheta

        I was playing it for a while until I got all the stars..there wasn't any need after that. I'm really hoping for new courses

    • wetfly

      apparently its an accurate port of the original. Just the 18 holes of pure wonder. But there is a collectables mode which unlocks after the first play.

  • bobcorrigan

    Wow.  Just take my $.  

  • Gemutlichkeit

    Looks really well done!
