    After a long two week wait for Apple to review my game, GL Golf is finally available on the iTunes App store. Here is the direct link in anyone is interested

    Any feedback is welcome, this is my first program I've released on the iPhone and I'm looking to improve it with a v1.1 update.

    Porting over the game was a great and easy experience and I highly recommend it to anyone who has programmed Mac software with Cocoa.

    Hi, would you please write down the description and price for those of us who do not have access to iTunes at the moment? Also, do you have a gameplay video? If so, please provide a link. Cheers!

    Sure, the program is $7.99 and here is the description (also available here http://nuclearnova.com/glgolfiphone.php)

    GL Golf is a 3D golfing game for the casual gamer. With a realistic physics system and great simple graphics, you and up to four players can golf five unique courses for countless hours. Everything in a real game of golf is included, such as water hazards, sand traps, trees, bushes, wind, four seasons, different times to play, and much more.


    Unfortunately I don't have a video right now but I'm working on one

    Just an update, a free four hole version, GL Golf Lite, is now available on iTunes. I've also worked on the game a little for version 1.01, but I'll have to wait until November and December to optimize the game engine, add new courses, and improve the graphics.

    It's been a while, but here are two more updates on the GL Golf franchise -

    1) GL Golf Deluxe released - Twenty-Two course for $9.99 (on a special release discount, normally $14.99) . Check it out here - http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=301557622&mt=8


    2) GL Golf is now on discount to $5.99 (normally $7.99) for the same time that GL Golf Deluxe is on discount. The last update also added a sixth course. Link still in the first post of the thread.

    Any feedback is welcome, especially since there is a free lite version to try.

    this is exactly what I said would happen... my "premium" version of the game that I paid 8 dollars for gets discounted down and a new "premium" version comes out. Instead of just updating the original for those who have already bought the game. Am I out of line for being upset about this?

    It's a really great game that I really enjoy playing, probably one of my favorites... so I don't want my rant to mislead anyone into not buying it... but I just feel cheated by this. I think it could have been handled better.

    Sorry about the late reply, I guess I wasn't subscribed to the thread like I thought I was!

    Vende, after talking to several other developers I've decided to leave it at $9.99. Anything higher than $10 will be a big turn off, and even though the mac version costs $25 I can't charge even half of that on the iPhone.

    theishkid : I'm real sorry about this, I wish apple allowed for a $2 upgrade but they don't. I had to pay my course maker to convert all of the mac courses to the iPhone, so unfortunately I couldn't just give the courses away with a free update. Send me a PM and I'll see if I can get you a free code for GL Golf Deluxe



    In other news -

    I just wanted to inform anyone who subscribed to this thread that GL Golf Standard is on sale for a limited time at $0.99. After a short period of time it will return to the original $5.99 price point. I've been reluctant to drop the price, but with all of the competition on the app store I'm willing to try this price point for a short time.

    I'm also giving out a few free iTunes codes for GL Golf Deluxe (USA Only, sorry but I tried to give to a user to try in another country and iTunes gave an error). If you're willing to give an HONEST review on iTunes (1 star, 5 star, doesn't matter as long as its honest) send me an email to sales@nuclearnova.com within the next day or two with why you deserve a code and I'll send you one if I have any left.

    Again, any feedback is welcome. I'm in the process of adding a Practice mode to the game so you can try the same holes over and over again with infinite mulligans, as well as adding some other features from the mac version.

    I just played two holes but this game is AWESOME! HIGHLY recommended! 23 courses or so, all 4 seasons, different times of day, ball colors. I really really love this game. Great tap-tap swing mechanism.

    The developer was nice enough to give me a promo code so I have been playing GL Golf Deluxe which I have been really enjoying. I love the settings to change the time of day and the seasons even. I like the dusk setting personally.

    It's very easy to swing and I have already gotten double bogey's :D
    There are loads of courses so I def recommend this game. I'm off to leave a review on the itunes app store.

    Thanks again for the code!!

    Solid Game

    When GL Golf first came out, I passed on it as I thought the graphics were lacking. I though the "Par" golf game looked better, but having played it on my Palm, and trying the lite version, I found the game play lacking and passed on it too, waiting for what was supposed to be the upcoming release of Tiger Woods. As we all know, that didn't happen at year-end and is still some time out.

    While I'm now really looking forward to Let's Golf, I decided the $1 sale on GL Golf was reason enough to buy it and give it a try. Once I got past my dislike for the floating golf club and less than ideal graphics, I've come to like the game. While it may not look the best, it's got good game play. If the $1 standard sale price continues, I think it will be less frustrating for people to upgrade to deluxe if they want the extra courses--$1 is a lot easier to "throw away" than $5 if you later decide you want the extra courses of deluxe.

    Promos were for the deluxe, but I'm pretty much out of them now so I gotta save the one I still have until I update and get 50 new ones.

    I purchased GL Golf for $.99 and I am very happy with the game. It has the best physics of any golf on iPhone. It's a steal at this price.:D

    I dl'ed the lite version and enjoyed it. It reminded me of an old game I used to play online like 10 years ago called java golf ( atleast thats what I think it was called ). Anyways after enjoying the lite version, I decided to buy the .99 one. For a buck you really cant go wrong.

    PS : It looks like I'm out of codes for the Deluxe version, I'm really surprised how many requests I received so quickly!
