Critical reception[edit]

Original[edit]

The original game has a Metacritic score of 77% based on 6 critic reviews.[1]

No DPad wrote "Flick Golf is another one of those games that you simply can't go wrong with, unless you hate golf games for some reason. "[2] Appspy said "Flick Golf! is a great addition to the list of flick-style of sports titles and while it only really offers one form of gameplay, it's polished and great to kill off a few spare minutes. "[3] Eurogamer wrote "I found Flick Golf brilliantly stupid; as a representation of badly dressed men hitting balls with skinny sticks, it's completely terrible, but despite its nonsensical mechanics it's impossible to put down. "[4] Gamezebo said "Full Fat Productions have made something special with Flick Golf, offering up a perfect pick-up-and-play experience that's easy to learn, difficult to master, wonderfully unique, and impossible to put down. "[5] Pocket Gamer UK wrote "Flick Golf is a challenging take on the sport and a welcome – if occasionally frustrating – addition to the ball-flicking subgenre".[6] Slide To Play said "Flick Golf is a fun minigame that gets old quickly due to lack of variety."[7]

Extreme[edit]

Extreme has a Metacritic score of 79% based on 5 critic reviews.[8]

AppSmile said "Pairing the same awesome control mechanics with some crazy new environments, Flick Golf Extreme will put your flicking skills to the ultimate test."[9] AppSpy wrote "Flick Golf never presented itself as a 'realistic' golfing title, so 'Extreme!' takes things to the next level by placing courses in locations that fit its over-the-top style. "[10] 148Apps said " My only complaint would be that load times can seem a little long for when I'm trying to get a quick game in during a commercial break on television or something, but it's certainly worth waiting for - it's also totally understandable when considering the detail in the levels that's been squeezed onto our little devices. "[11] TouchArcade said " It's still as enjoyable as the first and considering the game already makes use of slightly weird physics and non-traditional gameplay, the 'extreme' version is a better representation of what Flick Golf is all about: a casual, leaderboard driven golf game. "[12] PocketGamerUK said "Flick Golf Extreme! isn't a major departure from the original's arcade strokeplay, but the new locations and game mode are still a welcome addition to the formula. "[12]
