A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Educational Value

Mini Touch Golf wasn't created with educational intent, and we don't recommend it for learning.

Ease of Play

There's no tutorial here for first-time players, so it may be challenging for some players to get the hang of the "pull back to go forward" opposite motion control. If you don't touch the screen right next to the ball, the viewable area changes, which can also be a bit frustrating. But the guide line gives players a good idea where the ball is going to go, and once you get the hang of it, it's the same motion throughout.

Violence & Scariness
Sexy Stuff
Language
Consumerism

The main menu has a "more games" tab that takes players to a screen with the option to buy other games from this publisher, including at least two games that are not in the same sports games genre as this non-violent mini golf game, such as Sniper Strike and Minion Wars.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Mini Touch Golf is a cute mini golf game with 36 different holes increasing in levels of challenge. All but the first few holes may be a little too challenging for many younger players because it does require some precision in finger motion to grab and shoot the ball. For kids (or adults) who get frustrated with real mini golf, they'll likely have the same reaction here.

What's it about?

To putt in MINI TOUCH GOLF, kids touch the ball, pull back their finger, aim toward the hole -- they can check their aim via a guide line on the screen -- and release. The game doesn't have a tutorial, so kids may need to practice a bit to get the hang of the motion, then it's always the same. There are 36 different holes with different themes -- some of which may be kind of spooky for younger players, including a haunted house level and one with a giant spooky clown. Levels increase in challenge through more obstacles and tighter corners.

Is it any good?

Mini Touch Golf is definitely fun to look at with a variety of themes. It's also fun to play -- if you have the patience to master the seemingly simple controls on this 36-hole mini golf app. The "pull back to go forward" opposite motion control, combined with the fact that if you don't touch the screen right next to the ball the viewable area changes, isn't forgiving for new or younger users whose fingers may not be ready for precision of this level for a mini golf game.
