Wonderputt. More like Wonderbutt. Ok, maybe that was a bit childish. Lets back up. Wonderputt is developed by a company called Damp Gnat, which might be the best name for a company (or band for that matter) that I have ever heard. The game play is simple and not unlike most of the other mini golf games you may have played. Pull back on the golf ball and you’ll see a power indicator, aim where you want it and let go. The holes are quite interesting with VERY creative animations which cover up and then reveal the next hole.
But that’s where I lost interest. There are lots of problems with this game in my opinion.
First off, you can’t zoom into the hole at all to get better control of your shot. Strike One. Second, after you pass the first 18 levels that’s kind of it. Those are all the levels. They do introduce little rainbow things you can collect on the second play through but by that time I was already bored with the game. Strike Two. Lastly there is no multiplayer at all. You’re competing against your own previous score and that’s about it. Strike Three.
Sorry Damp Gnat. The game is gorgeous, but I need more. Add the zoom feature, make each hole itself more interesting to play, add more courses and give us some multi-player and you might have something. But sorry in the meantime Wonderputt has been deleted from my iPad. Oh that that reminds me. Wonderputt is only available for iPad 2 and the new iPad. Everyone else must sit this one out, but if you read the above you’ll see that’s what I recommend anyway.
