    Can I just say that this game is absolutely amazing! I guess there's a certain charm in simplicity. Deserves game of the week. Hell, game of the month even. Definitely a hidden gem.

    Will play some more to decide. But I'm already inclined to purchase all the IAPs to support the devs. Great job guys!

    Few suggestions though:-
    • The Game Center banner constantly appearing is super annoying. (I'm sure it's a bug and can be fixed)
    • An option to restart a course from the beginning in the pause menu would save us going through 2-3 screens when using end then selecting course and starting again. Somewhat of a QoL improvement I would say.
    Otherwise, brilliant game. (Can't believe I'm playing something that has ads - probably because I am close to purchasing the IAP to remove it)

    I’m on a mission to best your score on every course, @macplash :)

    @Anotherkellydown You usually beat me in every game according to Game Center, so I see no reason for this one to be any different. But be aware. This time I’m not gonna make it easy for you!;)

    Like everyone else I’m really enjoying it, the remove ads was a no brainer, but I do have the same issues with the putting that others have...

    Hey everyone, glad to see you are enjoying the game! We got in Apple’s “5 new games we love” in some territories today too!

    Regarding the putting, if you’re having issues, please DM me. Is it just hard to see? Or is there some sort of bug, like it not going in when it should?

    Thanks

    Morgan

    I miss the hole quite a bit when it looks like it goes right over it. I think it should zoom into the green when you are close enough to putt.

    Really enjoying the game so far. Very similar to Mario Golf on the GBC which was a cracking game.

    Agree with others about some sort of zoom into the green when putting as occasionally the player will cover the hole. Also some more apparent noises when the balls bounces would be nice.

    One gripe I do have is that the hit boxes for the trees don't seem quite right at points. I'll drive towards the green and the ball seems to hit one of the taller trees even when it's at the other side of the fairway.

    Sometimes I will initiate the swing by pressing the 'swing' button, it will start moving and I miss the 'swing' button when I choose the power, so it will automatically swing and can mess up an entire course if it heads into the trees.
    Would it be possible for the swing to be aborted if, after selecting 'swing' to begin, if the button isn't pressed again then it will cancel, so then it reverts back to being able to alter the direction of the ball?

    Would like to echo the complaints regarding the putting. It seems like the ball goes right over the hole and fails to go in. Game is great other than that though!

    This is the most fun I've had playing an iOS golf game. There is a large number of well-designed courses, just the right degree of challenge, and great gameplay features including global stats. Very enjoyable and addictive. It's free to try and 99 cents to remove ads.

    Now I've completed the game I can truly say it's the best golf game I have played on iPhone. The tree collision I mentioned earlier is no issue. I slowly learned the angles moreso. The putting is perfectly fine for me, however I would like to see it zoom in when on the green.

    Just the ability to abort the swing like I mentioned above would be the only needed change I would like to see.

    Cannot wait to see what else is added to this game but the replayability and constantly trying to get up the leaderboards will keep me playing for a long time!

    No. 3 overall, globally, on the Maestros on my first try though!

    Having a lot of fun with this game. Any roadmap of planned extra content you can share with us? I'd gladly pay a couple of bucks for new courses, other skins/customizable options or better clubs. Thanks!

    I downloaded Pixel Pro Golf just to see what all the praise in the forum is about because i thought its just one more golf game. But damn was i wrong.

    Of course its golf but for me its the most perfect, chill golf game i have played on ios up till now. The simplicity is perfection and it really has just the right amount of courses. Bought the ad remover without hesitation and would pay more for updates. The rising difficulty is also well balanced and the challenge to rise to number one in the world Ranking will keep me playing for a long time. I also like the putting mechanics and don't find them off - you just have to be precise and need to go slow.

    For me Pixel Pro Golf is the game of the month.

    Of course you’re not. I am!:cool: ..... but seriously, after winning all courses I guess we all are. It’s nice to share the success, isn’t it?:D

    really nice game.
    But is it just me, or does the screen not fit on the iPhone SE (2016) really well. Think the edges are cut off.

    I agree with @atko92 about the abort swing. Other than that, it's been perfectly fun all the time, even when losing! It'd also be useful having a "restart course" option to avoid going through the menu and course selection screens, but it's not mandatory as the necessary time to do this in its current form is fairly short.

    Best $0.99 (remove ads) I've spent in the last few months. Courses and equipment are unlocked as you play, so no need to buy those upfront, although it's good having them available, even if just for supporting the dev.
