    Completed all the 9 courses and even managed to keep 2 high scores on the way. A brilliant game with the right amount of difficulty to keep it engaging.

    Gameplay: During the initial 4 to 5 courses I was not hitting the ball far enough. Once I figured it out, I was over shooting. Clicking the “Z” key the second time when the bar is going just above the mid point seems to work for hitting the ball far. I guess the controls are set to make the game not too easy or not too difficult, very well balanced. Seeing the grass layout and the position of the birds, it became easier to spot the direction of the hole with respect to the ball.

    Graphics: All the three themes look beautiful. I liked the brown trees and grass theme. The circle rotating effect around the ball is nicely done and helps keep track of the ball position. I went far from the ball and went beyond the tress to get plain grass fields.

    Scoring: Very fair scoring. Deliberately trying to hit the eagle or the pelican to score more lead to lot of trouble with reflected balls going into the trees. So tried to take the shortest path to the hole through the tress with as few hits per hole. Mostly it worked. Keeping the online scoreboard and local scoreboard away from the HUD lead to a more relaxing game.

    Title & sound: The game title was different from the one posted in earlier blogs. Current title I guess is unique to this game. It must by really hard to choose a title every week that is unique. The art for the main title as well the eagle, or bird hit message along with game over and hole complete messages are artfully done. Music is suiting the pace of the game. Sound ball hitting the hole felt satisfying.

    Overall a very brilliantly executed game.
