Very nice little game :) Love the music as well!


Thank you for not gating people into a reset when they go above par. I really like the idea of low pressure games where I can just do that on purpose. I probably could have put more effort into it, but I got 352/233 as my final score and I'm pretty happy with it. 

I really enjoyed this game, thank you for putting it out :D


Nice little brain teaser, especially when trying to get below par. 
Managed 216 / 233, not sure if it's possible to get lower.

Only complaint is that it's a bit clunky to move between holes after you've cleared the course and are trying to optimize individual holes.


Pretty cool game, but I think there is a bug. When you go over par it says "x to reset" but pressing X then goes to the next level while the nr in top right doesn't change? weird.


Fun game, but I'm finding the same, I believe it might be confusing the "par" score for levels as well.

I identified this issue with the latest release. I fixed one bug, but introduced another. I have the fixed version up now. Thanks for making me aware of it, and thanks for playing!


Nicely done, but basically the same idea as this: http://smartcode.hu/mobile.php?app=pa_mobile



that was so cute! love everything about this - the puzzle design, the progression, the presentation, the blue fur in the background, the music... wheeeeee



I got 223/233 and had a blast. The music is so simple, it has no right to make me this emotional.


I'm glad you liked the music. I wrote it on the piano for my son a while ago, and thought it would work well in this game. : )


Great game! Is this a Safeway exclusive? :D :P

they’re the only ones who would take it, so YES!


Also, 287!


very nice :D


Love the mechanics and it’s so lovely presented. Great job!

means a lot coming from you! Thanks!


Great puzzle game! It's cool that you keep score and have a par for each puzzle. I wound up 398/233

Thanks for the comment and for playing!
