Flick Golf Extreme! Not putting on ‘the green’ but from helicopters, battleships & oil rigs!
Jul 25, 2012 9:23 AM –
Flick Golf Extreme is a golf game with a difference. Instead of teeing off on lush green fairways and playing 18 holes in the beautiful countryside, Flick Golf Extreme sees you taking shots from a moving helicopter, over canals, tower blocks and ravines. Easy to play, hard to master, the game is also highly addictive and fun.
Tested on: HTC One X
Pros & Cons:
- Awesome graphics!
- Addictive and challenging!
- Great sound!
- Limited locations might restrict longevity.
Flick Golf Extreme is a slick and well developed game from Full Fat, the folks that brought us Flick Soccer!. The game is the follow up to the successful Flick Golf! and sees the gameplay ramped up to include exciting and ‘extreme’ locations. These include battleships, tower blocks and oil rigs.
Controls are very simple. Simply flick your finger over the ball to hit it, the longer the swipe the further the ball goes. Once in flight you can control the spin by swiping across the screen in the direction you want the ball to swerve… and that is it! You’ll have to contend the wind factor, which picks up as a level progresses and makes accuracy tougher.
There are three modes of play: QuickShot, World Tour and 5 Ball Challenge. In QuickShot mode you progress through the six locations, reaching certain scores in a set time to move on. World Tour is much of the same, although you only have 9 shots to take. 5 Ball Challenge gives you just 5 shots to score as highly as possible. It gives the game nice variety, although I worry just 6 locations could start to feel repetitive after prolonged play. These modes do however create a real challenge and progressing can be quite tough with later levels requiring higher and higher scores.

Flick Golf Extreme – List of locations
Flick Golf Extreme is a fun arcade-style golf game that’s great to play. Because the controls are so easy, it’s something you can just pick up, play a few holes and put down again, giving it a distinctly casual feel. With the exciting locations and stunning graphics, it’s both entertaining and satisfying.
Initially I have found this very addictive. Unlocking new locations is really motivating and beating previous scores and progressing in different modes is engrossing. There are just the 6 locations however, so I’m unsure how addictive the game might feel after a few weeks of play.
The graphics are buttery smooth and very polished. There is always lots going on in the background making the game immersive and intriguing.
Accelerometer, Vibration & Sound:
The sound is awesome, featuring different music tracks and sound effects depending on how your shot scores. There are also lots of extra sounds that are unique to the environments you play in.
