The browser version of Wonderputt, the most whimsically beautiful golf game you've ever played, has won a number of awards, including Best Physics Game of 2011 right here on JayIsGames. Now Reese Millidge of Damp Gnat has ported the game to iPad 2 and newer devices! The best reason to pony up the cash, though, is so you can experience the stunning animation on the retina display of the mobile device. Stunning.
Touch controls really suit the game's mechanics. Simply drag and release to fire a ball over the course of 18 quirky holes. It's a lot easier to finish the game under par than in the Flash version, but that doesn't mean the game is lacking in challenge. Collecting all 72 pieces of "wonder" in order to complete the rainbow is still a task that's going to take you weeks of trying, if you ever manage it, and for the truly insane completionists amongst you, you can try for a perfect 10,000 points on every hole. But for the less ambitious, with its gentle soundtrack and soothing visuals, a round of Wonderputt is a perfect, relaxing break. And a perfect fit for the iPad as well.
NOTE: This game was played and reviewed on a third generation iPad. Game was available in the North American market at the time of publication, but may not be available in other territories. Please see individual app market pages for purchasing info.
