If Okidokico Entertainment had released their latest update for OK Golf [$2.99] a mere week earlier during what was apparently England's 'longest heat wave ever' (which lasted a prolonged and arduous five days), their dismal and damp new Oakford Woods course would feel somewhat out of place. However, just in time for OK Golf's 1.4 patch, the sun promptly disappeared from our isles and was replaced with incessant rain. Don't you just love Britain, eh? Obligatory weather ranting aside, the latest update for OK Golf is a big one for fans of the stunning iPhone golfing simulator, as the aforementioned England course has been added alongside Apple TV support, all for no additional cost. Following some solid improvements since its initial release at the start of the year, OK Golf has grown from a beautiful yet flawed title to one that presents a really distinct perspective on the sport, and is more essential than ever now this new update has finally launched on the App Store...

OK Golf [$2.99] has continued expanding since its release, and today the game got online multiplayer and pass & play multiplayer as well as a whole new course. And, more importantly for many of you, the game is now available on Android. The online multiplayer mode has you taking turns with a friend and trying to complete a course with the fewest possible strokes. If you prefer to do your multiplayer games on the same device, the latest update lets you pass & play with up to three other players. In addition to this new mode, the game now has the luxurious Miami Palms golf course...




'OK Golf' Will Hit the Android Greens Soon

OK Golf's [$2.99] claim to fame is its lovely visuals, but it also offers an entertaining—if not wholly faithful—version of golf. The game has been putting around iOS for some time now, but it's finally ready to go for an Android birdie soon. If you pre-register for the Android version here, you'll get a launch reward—an exclusive 3-hole preview of an upcoming course set on the rooftops of Paris. We generally liked the game when we reviewed it, although we did have some issues with the game's inability to decide how faithful it would be to the rules of the actual sport...

Earlier this month, OK Golf [$2.99] from suitably named developers Okidokico Entertainment launched on the App Store to much aplomb, being featured heavily by Apple and impressing both those with a casual experience of the sport and golfing veterans with its stunning aesthetic design and simplistic touch-centric controls. Despite the game's ingenuity, Carter stated in our review that occasionally OK Golf deviated too much from the tried and true golfing formula, and quite a few minor annoyances somewhat sullied what was an otherwise ambitious effort from the developers in standing out amongst the genre-defining efforts of Super Stickman Golf 3 [Free] and others. Thankfully, the developers have taken aboard much of the criticism from the game's launch, and have submitted an update for OK Golf that should attempt to fix many of the smaller issues that some have had with the game, in the lead up to a more substantial content update next month...

Casual, mobile-friendly golf with a striking visual style is what OK Golf [$2.99] promises. It also offers up a structure and holes that are familiar to golf, but do some things that feel just a bit off from normal golf. And the controls have some issues, too. It adds up to an experience that seems really interesting at first, but over time becomes a bit sour, before a few of its quirks start to grow. Regardless, it's a decidedly imperfect game...

As seems to be normal for App Store releases these days, the bulk of the new games will be released by Wednesday night and then included in our new games roundup post that we do every week... Then, inevitably, a few more randomly drizzle out late Wednesday night and early Thursday morning, the latest example of which being OK Golf [$2.99]. It's a premium game free of all freemium shenanigans, which it seems like people are always asking for. One thing I'm curious of is what people who are into the technical aspects of golf games will think of this, as it almost plays more like a mini golf game since there isn't any sort of club selection to speak of...

'OK Golf' Is an Upcoming Stylish Zen Take on the Sport

One of the best parts of watching golf is the beautiful landscapes that host the sport, and the upcoming OK Golf by okidokico is turning those landscapes into stylish dioramas that will remind you of Square Enix Montreal's GO games. That shouldn't come as a surprise since the game's developers have worked for Square Enix Montreal in the past (not sure whether one or both of them have done so). As you can see from the trailer below, the game aims at offering quite the zen experience that trades challenge for relaxation. With a minimalist interface and lovely music, OK Golf should offer serene gameplay - with the occasional irritation of throwing that ball into the water...

'Stickman Cross Golf Battle' Gets First Official Trailer and is Looking for Beta Testers

Back in late August we posted about Stickman Golf Battle, the newest game from Djinnworks who have created an entire line of "Stickman" sports games. The idea was to take the player-versus-player focus of their previous game Stickman Skate Battle [Free] and apply it to a full-blown golfing game. Well, since that original announcement the game has been progressing rapidly, and it has even undergone a slight name change, as it's now known as Stickman Cross Golf Battle. While our original post featured some in-game footage of an early version of the game, with the official name now set and the game moving towards completion Djinnworks has created an official trailer for Stickman Cross Golf Battle, which you can check out just below...

'Vista Golf' Brings Competition and Tons of Levels, and It's Looking for Testers

I enjoy playing mini golf games on my phone because they are usually fun and fast. The upcoming Vista Golf, launching next week, is a simple mini golf game that will be adding new courses every week and will have you competing weekly for the top spot across three 18-hole courses. At the end of the week, those who won will get rewards and more courses will be added. There's also an infinite mode that takes the pressure of competing off and lets you play for fun. The game looks like a more detailed version of GOLFINITY—as someone in our forum thread also pointed out—and the developer has stated that while there are similarities between the two, Vista Golf has more vertical elements (like ramps) along with competitive elements...

'Disc Golf To Go' Looks Like Fun, Releasing Next Month

The developer of Disc Golf to Go has been quite active in our Upcoming Games forum thread, describing his development process over the last few months, and now the game is almost done and will release next month. This one-man project has you trying to beat various levels using the right disc for each—since each disc has its own special abilities. Most of the discs can be found hidden across the various levels (although there are some you can buy). One of the fun wrinkles in the game is the way you get stars in the levels. Instead of getting stars for completing the level in fewer throws, you get the stars by literally flying through them. And as you can see in the trailer, those stars aren't always still...

Real-Time Multiplayer 'Battle Golf Online' Looking for Testers in Our Forums

Colin Lane, of Golf Zero [Free], has teamed up with Folmer Kelly and Kappsule Studios to improve the 2015 game Battle Golf [Free] and turn it into a game called Battle Golf Online. As you can see in our Upcoming Games forum thread, the game is all about whacking golf balls either at holes or the heads of your real time multiplayer opponents. Both options seem pretty enticing to me. The game is pretty fast and frantic, and the real-time part of it definitely helps make the game more fun. Battle Golf Online also has AI matches and local multiplayer...

'Retro Shot' is a Retro-Futuristic Mini-Golf Game That Looks Rad

Superplus Games is a studio formed up of ex-Rovio developers, and they're releasing their game Retro Shot on February 25th. Now, being that they're ex-Rovio, that means the game should be well-made, right? Well, sometimes there's a reason why developers are ex-developers of a certain company. Sometimes it's just that someone who was talented at one part of big-budget game development might not be so adept at making entire games on their own on indie development budgets. It happens. So, with me raising your expectations, then lowering them, let me raise them once more, because Retro Shot looks rad:..

GDC 2015: First Look at 'Super Stickman Golf 3' and its Level Editor

Noodlecake is about to make their stick golf series into a trilogy. Super Stickman Golf [$2.99] and Super Stickman Golf 2 [Free] were smash hits, but the one feature they've lacked is a solid level editor. That's what they're hoping to change with Super Stickman Golf 3. We got a first look at the level editor, which likely will make for some pretty insane user-created content:..

New 'Super Stickman Golf 2' Trailer Released, and It's Looking Great

One of the sleeper a couple of years ago was Noodlecake Games' Super Stickman Golf [$2.99], which is basically a physics puzzle game at its heart but its mechanics fit in beautifully with the theme and basic ruleset of golf. It was and is a great single-player game, but one of the big features that really put it on the map was its riotous multiplayer offering. It had you playing with up to 4 players in real-time as you frantically raced against each other to be the person who could get their ball in each cup first. It's pretty much the best thing ever...

Mobile developer FinBlade, who brought us Tennis Slam, has released Ernie Els Golf 2008 [App Store] for the iPhone and iPod touch...

Out Now: 'RPGolf', 'Tower Fortress', 'Beat Street', 'Corporate Salmon', 'AdVenture Communist', '7 Wonders', 'Universal Paperclips', 'The Alchemist Code', 'Catan Universe', 'Ocmo', 'Shadows Remain' and More

Gather 'round children as we present a list of the best new iOS games of the past 7 days. And, like always, we've got a stacked list this week with more awesome looking games than anybody reasonably has time for. The literally years in development, almost mythical 7 Wonders has finally arrived, two different PUBG-likes from NetEase battle it out with Rules of Survival and Knives Out, and both RPGolf and Beat Street are some of the most fun I've had in a long time based on my brief experiences with them. Oh, and Shadow Fight 3 is set to arrive sometime in the next day. Too. Many. Games. Folks. So check out the full list below and let us know in the comments which games you're most excited about this week...

SwitchArcade: 'Golf Story', 'Stardew Valley', 'Fire Emblem Warriors', and 'Super Mario Odyssey' Mini-Reviews

We always get a positive response whenever we post about Switch stuff now and again as it seems like there's loads of crossover in our audience between people who are into gaming on the go who also, unsurprisingly, are also really into the Nintendo Switch. Maybe we'll eventually get into full-on Switch reviews, but for the time being I like the idea of posting these sort of mini-review roundups. So, if you're even half as into the Switch as we are, strap in. Otherwise, well, we've posted other iOS stuff today you can check out instead!..

Sometimes I wonder if Justin Smith from Captain Games realizes his own genius when creating games, or if he just makes games that happen to be stunningly brilliant. One of my all-time favorite games is Enviro-Bear 2010 [$0.99], which is a silly game about a bear driving a car with absurdly difficult driving physics. Beyond its wacky surface, though, there is a ton of depth, and it's remained on my phone since its original release nearly a decade ago. Then there's Desert Golfing [$1.99]. This totally stripped-down 2D golfing game has you whacking a ball into a hole in as few strokes as possible, moving from hole to hole in stark, barely changing environments until… well, until the world falls into the sun, or something. I guess it technically has an end, but most people will never see it and most don't seem to care. It's a perfect mobile game to pop out and play a few holes here and there, but if you squint your eyes just right, you can also pull some deep philosophical meanings out of Desert Golfing. No joke...
