[prMac.com] Cheltenham, United Kingdom - Mobile games studio Neon Play, today launched its latest addictive iPhone game onto Apple's App Store, promising hours of putting fun and friendship issues. Golf Putt Pro 1.0 can turn any iPhone user into a putting genius or short-game loser. Up to four friends can compete to head the leaderboard. Watch friends fallout over the simplest of shots.
"It's so simple and addictive anyone can pick it up within minutes. The only downside is that the multiplayer mode may lead to blows as friends get over competitive," said Oli Christie, managing director of Neon Play.
Priced at $0.99 (59p) Golf Putt Pro is launched hot on the heels of Neon Play's highly successful game Flick Football, which reached the UK Top 10 for both paid and free versions.
The attraction is simplicity. Golf Putt Pro is beautifully simple, yet highly addictive. Players tap the ball when the moving arrow is at the correct angle for the slope of the green. The ball then follows the chosen trajectory to glory or failure.
"With the British Golf Open being played at St. Andrews, we hope players will be inspired to emulate their heroes," added Christie.
There are four game modes in the game:
* Three Lives - you have three chances to miss the putt. Consecutive putts give you a multiplier
* In A Row - it's a game of sudden death where you have to putt as many consecutive balls as you can
* Pro - this is for really hard-core players. The golf hole moves to different positions and the arrow moves a bit faster
* 18 Holes - a fantastic mode for up to 4 players all competing on the same device. Take it in turns to putt your balls and see who's the winner
The game also has live global leaderboards, plus you can play against your Facebook friends and post your scores to Twitter and Facebook. Golf Pro Lite coming soon - Coming soon, there will also be a free version of the game with the IN A ROW game mode, enabling players to enjoy the basic version of the game.
* iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad
* Requires iOS 3.0 or later
* 6.3 MB
